#st. louis blues
Jaroslav Halak and Vladimir Tarasenko from Game 2 warmups. Most of my pictures have blur to them because I was right up against the glass, and everyone was so excited and pounding on the glass (not to mention Kris Russell decided to jump into the glass right next to me and made everything wonky- LOL), but some pics are still gems. I REALLY got lucky with the top one. :D
i realize halak isnt BAD. what i meant is that price is BETTER&ppl in mtl keep asking for halak back whenever price lets in a softie. most habs fans dont even know what team hes on now. HOWEVER, hes been injured at least once a season which may not be his fault but its still happening. PLUS, i pointed out a bunch of bad points cuz i met him& hes extremely egotistical, and he stole prices job and rly embarrassed him in hockey city. hes very good if u have 2goalies though, i guess. good luck btw(:
i find it hilarious how much habs fans dont know about this guy…
1) he plays for the st louis blues
2) he has been injured three times
3) he was basically demoted to backup (behind Brian Elliot)
4) hes injured right now
jaroslav halak was good for two rounds in the playoffs for one year surrounded by a team that was healthy and playing amazing. he was never meant to be a starting goalie, so its no wonder he cant handle it.
Excuse you, Halak has played excellently for the Blues. Yes, he is injured, but that is hardly his fault and it certainly does not diminish what he has done for this team during the three years he has worn the Bluenote.
He has not and has never been “demoted to backup,” the goalies share a number one role due to the Blues organization having a number of excellent goalies at their disposal that complement and push each other to succeed. Even so, he has always been considered the 1A option. People seem to forget that amongst the hype of Brian Elliott’s career year last season that Halak played in more games and performed similarly well.
Most all the struggles that Blues goaltending has faced had this season can be directly traced back to defensive breakdowns and a failure of the team in front to play as they are supposed to. Soft goals happen, yes. But they are almost always the exception rather than the rule.
What I find hilarious is how much you don’t know, or possibly choose to ignore about Jaroslav Halak and the team he plays for in order to make your own petty little point.
