I stand in the way of what every player wants most.
I am a dream wrecked. A momentum killer. A goal robber.
In my world every puck is a threat, every puck carrier, an accomplice.
I defend my net on the principle that it is my home and that nothing comes in uninvited. Every save I make fuels the next and every crease I protect is my own. I am satisfied only after I stop everything.
I say that people like for Fleury, Lundqvist, Price or Holtby deserved better, but you know who really deserved better? Jamie Benn. The man literally won 3 awards on the final night of the season and wasn’t happy because they didn’t make the playoffs, then subsequently went on during his speech to apologize to fans and sign autographs all night while everyone was so proud of him and his individual achievement. Pricey, Flower, Hank, Holtby and Benny deserved better.
