Annie. 17. Montreal. Habs, Pens, Hawks, (Stars), (Canucks). This is a Dustin Tokarski hate blog, sorry. #FreeBuds Jiri Sekac is a Czech Prince. Thank you to the inspiration and living legend that is Saku Koivu. You will be missed! Good luck!
Carey Price at the Annual Golf Tournament on September 15, 2015. Funny how he would’ve never said this if Tokarski hadn’t semi joined the lineup (via pricernellkarl)
Reblogging my own post because I feel like people don’t understand the severity of this statement. The last time this bullshit was a reality, it was the 2009-2010 Season where onc-thought-to-be-talented-but-then-everyone-realized-4-years-later-that-he-sucked-yet-they-still-havent-put-together-the-fact-that-our-success-in-2010-was-because-our-team-was-good-and-not-that-sad-excuse-for-a-goalie Halak was on Price’s ass eventually leading Price to shut down and lose the starting job.
Listen people, Price can handle a shit ton of pressure and a bipolar Montreal crowd, who within literally minutes can go from booing him to chanting his name and worshipping him (literally minutes guys, I’ve seen it), but for reason he’s really not down with people putting unnecessary pressure from within. Budaj never did that. Even when Price was injured in the season for that post Olympic stretch, Budaj mentioned every single day that he’s doing his best but the real goalie is Price and as soon as he’s recovered, it’s back to him no matter how well or badly Buds played. Budaj is a supporter of Carey Price. He always has his back, something that has made the two of them really great friends (or best friends if you wanna quote Price.)
Tokarski, on the other hand, clearly wants to be a starter (even though he’s 5 years late which is usually a tell tale sign of lack of talent) and will probably push to become the starter which is all good and well excePT WHEN YOU HAVE THE BEST GOALIE IN THE WORLD AS YOUR STARTER WHO DOESN’T REACT WELL TO PEOPLE TRYING TO CHALLENGE HIM FOR THE JOB. I feel like if people watched Price and actually studied how he played, they’d see that he’s not only incredible but inhumanely so. His talent, although acknowledged, is underrated still, proven when he wasn’t nominated for the Vezina last season (which is also a testament to the NHL basing everything off of stats. Tuukka Rask won because he has the best stats but if you look at his team next to the Habs and the fact that the Habs, thanks to Price, beat the Bruins in the postseason, you’ll see that Price’s talent way outshines Tuukka’s. Tuukka is able to make an incredible team stay strong across the board. Price is able to make a decent team beat a team they shouldn’t have been able to beat.)
Long story short, people undervalue Price’s extreme talent, one that will go down in history, and have been overvaluing Tokarski’s small to nonexistent talent (as far as NHL skill) because of the media’s insane influence on their opinion of talent rather than their actual assessment and it might cost us the best goalie in the world if we’re not careful.
Obviously just my opinion. I am not God, what I’m saying does not represent the entire world, there is no need to write me angry messages on anon. If you want to have a discussion, go ahead and message me but I am so done with people clicking anon and yelling at me uneducated giberish. If you want to discuss sanely on anon, that’s cool. I’m always down for debate. And if you want to talk off anon, I don’t reply publicly ever sooooooooooo it’s up to you (if you even want to comment on everything I’ve just said haha). Also, if you’re completely outraged that I’m not obsessed with Tokarski, go ahead and click unfollow if you feel you must. I’m sure if I had tumblr during the ridiculour Halak post season I would’ve gotten a lot of unfollows then too. Anyway, that’s pretty much it soooo have a nice day everyone!
nooooooooooooooooo i just spent literally like 20 minutes tagging angry conspiracy rage in my other post and i forgot theres a limit to tags so it just cut off randomly and there was still a lot more material that i wanted to share
Wow that sounds literally horrific… But yeah I don’t really have an actual problem with the day, even if it’s a little ironic in my opinion, other than the fact that I’m not planning on being super cheery today and I’M gonna have to give hundreds of loud French high school kids free yogurt so I’m just like ughhhh not in the mood
remember that time tim thomas was a bruin and said nasty things about pk subban on the radio for no reason and refused to go meet the president who happens to be black too
Petition for a Montreal vs Boston Winter Classic because it’s the biggest rivalry in the league and I’m fucking tired of seeing the same goddamn teams play every year.
