This kid was impressive to say the least. He went head to head against one of the best in the game. Don't see him back in Hershey anytime soon.

Like I said in another post, it was a shame he had such bums wearing the same jersey in G-7. They really didn't do him any favors. Congrats to Rangers.

Holtby looked damn good this series... I really think he's more talented than Varlamov who I personally thought would be a stud in the net for years to come. Hunter is a great coach.

That series was dead even and it was great hockey

Holtby makes  $600K next season and is an RFA in 2014. Vokoun gets $1.5 million and is a UFA end of next season while Neuvirth gets $1.15 million and is also an RFA in 2014.

how's THAT feel Philadelphia and Pittsburgh?

Bryzgalov 9 YEARS with $10 million this year and a $6 million average AND Fleury 7 YEARS averaging $5.5 million (but at least Flower won a Cup once)

LeRink,

what happened to Fleury in this playoffs? He was great in the cup win and the loss to the wings in the finals

just better hope Holtby doesn't turn into a re-run of James Carey, "Net Detective" in Washington

Carey and Blaine Lacher in Boston were BOTH "wierd deals". both were damn near unbeatable early on in their careers then fell completely apart

Flower has NEVER played his angles correctly and relies TOO much on his natural athletic talent. he also needs to learn to control rebounds. how many "shot, save, rebound" GOALS have we seen over the years and esp this season? some of that is the D not clearing BUT the top goalies just don't give up too many rebound chances. they "swallow the puck".

sounds crazy BUT Flower was at his best when he had (of all people) Ty Conklin pushing him AND Ty was also like a "second coach". I think without any internal competetion, he's gotten lazy
