To have as good numbers as he did its hard to believe you when you say that. If he played so bad in consecutive games then he must have only let in 1 goal in almost every other game. I don't know about you,but I would love having a goalie letting in 1 or 2 goals a game right now. Back up your argument with stats on consecutive games. I can't see it being worse then gerber's stats.
He'd always bomb the second night. The first game, he'd be great, the nothing on night two. And since he was a backup goalie, he didn't get a ton of chances two games in a row, so there isn't a whole lot to go off, but his second start was always much worse than the first.
Example. April 2, 2004, stops 39 of 40 shots and wins 3-1. April 3, 2004. Stops 6 of 9 shots and is pulled in the 2nd period.
March 13, 2004, stops 19 of 20 shots and wins 2-1. March 14, 2004. Stops 13 of 16 shots and is pulled after the 2nd period.http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/players/2896/gamelog;_ylt=AsCOvPok3Pw3r3ayJ7T92PtivLYF?year=2003http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/players/2896/gamelog;_ylt=AsCOvPok3Pw3r3ayJ7T92PtivLYF?year=2002
I don't think he ever had it in him to be a starter. Hell, he couldn't even make the Columbus Blue Jackets.
