In response to NeelyOrrBourque's comment:
I don't. I think you're way off. Timing is needed no matter what style you play. To compare Khudobin who's not an even a starter to a 4 time All-Star, 2 time Vezina, Conn Smythe, Stanley Cup winner is as dumb as it gets. You wanna talk serious then be serious about a comparison. Until then your assessment is nothing more than clouded judgement & using the fact you hate the guy & you only see him fail in his comeback, because that's what you're hoping for.
OK, yes, you are correct at least in part, I don't actually hate him a la Cooke hate him, but I am reasonably strong in my political beliefs - and I hate (HATE!) when it's introduced into my sports and music. When I watch or listen to either I don't want politics mixed in. And as strong as I feel about politics I think boycotting the white house is over the top, I wouldn't have gone that far were it a conservative in the white house (point one) and point two is that the activities the TEAM does outweighs my personal choices. I hate deep sea fishing, I think fishing is stupid, my college team went deep sea fishing - I went.
Also, I played tonight and my pick up goalies concur with you, doesn't matter what style, not playing a year will hurt your timing. One of the goalers has frequently played in alumni games for whatever that's worth.
re: Khudo - only reason I brought him in is because he's the only other scrambler I know of. Those of you who watch a lot more NHL than I do can probably name another. I can't. And I wanted to tip toward Stanley, because Khudo ain't going to be whatever Khudo can be unless he faces a ton of shots.
OK fair enough Badhab. At first when TT ditched the whitehouse thing I honestly didn't see it as a big deal. However, I'm not big on politics & honestly I vote for the individual who I think is the best for the job. I'm not set in stone to one party. Having said this I do understand how it bothered people. The thing that bothered me is how he used his FB page to go into his politcal rants. And after the white house ordeal he seemed to get worse even though he saw it was starting to become a distraction to him & the team. So, this is why I truly think this is part of the reason he went into hiding. He realized his mistake and I still also think he felt that he was trying to use his status to make a statement for those that can't. I think he was being unselfish to some, but very selfish to the ones that really mattered. This is why I think he's a whack job. If he wanted to share his views I think he should've had the decency to wait until those views wouldn't affect so many in a negative way. He should've shown the same kind of character of strength that he had to get to the top. And showed that strength to just keep his mouth shut until it didn't affect so many others in the process. Most of all unless there's something wrong in his immediate family he should've went thru his contractal obligations he had with the Bruins.
