Andersen doesn't suck, unlike Toskala!

Some very interesting off-season reading material about the evolution of the goalie pad.

I hope he's ready to go for October this time around.  Leafs need a stronger start from Freddy.

He started the season nursing an injury he sustained in a pre-World Cup game.  He also "overplayed" things alot, trying to challenge the shooter much more than he was used to because Babcock likes his goalies to do that.  Once they realized he's more effective staying deeper in his crease and he adjusted he was fine.  Hopefully the former doesn't happen again and the latter is now resolved.

You think Babcock was asking a goalie to play differently than what makes them successful? I highly doubt it.

This?

In late October, when asked whether the coaching staff had influenced Andersens radical style change, head coach Mike Babcock denied it: Hes obviously had a way hes done things and its important, until we get to know him, that we dont change anything. At the same press conference, Andersen himself refused to comment on the issue, stating simply, I dont want to go too much into that.

which was then followed by this:

Quote
Looking at the historical evidence, however, we see that Babcock has a history of asking his goaltenders to play at a more aggressive depth within his system. In 2011, Jimmy Howard discussed Babcocks depth preferences in an interview with InGoal: Ive got a great defensive crew with me and I know they are going to take care of that backdoor. Coach [Mike] Babcock stresses that, so you know the goalie has the shooter and you pick up everything backdoor, and that allows not only myself but also Chris [Osgood] to be more aggressive.

I'm sorry, I've coached goalies for 20 years. I've been a goalie my whole life. There's a difference between being aggressive and playing 6 feet out of your crease as Andersen was at the start of the season last season. So, Jimmy Howard saying that it allows him to be more aggressive doesn't mean to charge the shooter.

Did Andersen play differently than his previous seasons? Sure. He was also trying to impress on a very critical market that had lacked a #1 goalie for a few years. It is the NORM for a goalie coach/hockey coach to have the mentality that the goalie takes the shooter and the defense takes away the pass. That's not a new thought process. That isn't Babcock asking a goalie to do something different. That's how goalies have been taught for a very long time. Goalies play the shot, defense plays the pass.

Amazing when you start a year with a goalie that's on his game. Leafs threw away points early last year cause Andersen wasn't ready
