well this sucks for me...
i started Elliot and the leafs are destroying the sens so far.... Giguere's got a shutout so far....
I played Fleury... lost to the Canadiens terrible GAA
sat Giguere (see above comment)
sat Rask... he had a decent game in a losing cause though...
I played Jiggy, and a friend of mine told me to bench him. This confused me. He's a Stanley cup winner, and a Conn Smythe winner on a losing team, just came off a shut out, and a few days of rest, and had been in a backup role all year. Why would ANYBODY think of benching him? I know Ottawa had been hot, but that was all the more reason for the Leafs to play harder. There was also the Burke family situation, which we're all a little saddened about.
Bottom line, all aboard the Jiggy train... Next stop: 8th place in the East.
Play the odds regardless unless against power house like Sharks or Caps with over 3.4 goals/game
As for Giggy:
#1/ I woun'y have him on my team and if was desperate enough to actually have I'd only play him against a few of the weaker teams if I had any alternative. CAn't blame yourself on Leaf win or Sens snooze after 11 wins and they think they just have to show up At same tim eif he stumbles too much they wil put in their true #1 , Leclair which is a safe bet to start next game
Fleury doesn't have same D in front of him but I can see cranking it up a bit lately. He should be ok for after Oly games
Rask seems to be in front of Thomas now on the freefalling Boston bums, good for them, hate em. Unfortunetly I feel they will turn it around soon enough, too much talent and guts to stay down
Hang in there, you're fine
