Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

No. More. Raycroft.

Oh for fuck's sake.

Listen, how many times do I have to say it? HANNU. It's not that hard. Hannu wins? Hannu should play. Raycroft wins? Raycroft should play. But poor Rayzor's not doing a whole lotta winning of late. Until he figures it out, stop dicking around and let Hannu be the starter. Tell him he's the starter. Tell him he's the Number One goalie. Let Raycroft back him up for a while. This isn't an ego thing. This is what's best for the team. Hannu has clearly been head and shoulders above Raycroft this season and while I understand that no one wants to make any knee jerk, reactionary moves, while they're waiting around for Raycroft to find his groove, the team is losing games and dropping in the standings. Teams thrive on consistency and consistency at the goaltender position is of the utmost importance. Raycroft, for all his brilliance in the past, has been anything but consistent this year.

Put the better goalie in. The team will get better. It's that simple.

This has been a Public Service Announcement from a concerned Bruins fan.
