Has nothing to do with changing minds or thinking he's the next Marty......it's about riding the hot hand and taking advantage of that. Maybe they don't think Danis can handle playing that many games in a row? I really don't know what the logic was

But it's not about wavering back and forth, it's just common sense to stick with the guy who's on a roll......it's not like Mac was a stud and deserves his starting job back after an injury

But looking at the big picture here, it really doesn't make a difference......it's not like we lost ground on a playoff spot, well we did but it doesnt matter lol

More importantly the kids got more playing time and experience, they played hard till the end and kept it a game. That's all a fan can ask for this season.....I want them to win as much as the next guy but I also want the #1 pick. It is what it is, let the chips fall where they may.

Also, don't forget that 2 weeks ago Danis was still picking splinters out of his a/s/s after sitting on the bench all year.......I'm sure it's just a coincidence that he has gotten better every game since 2 weeks ago, right?

WTF... Always stick with the hot goaltender, especially when the team is on a winning streak!

Play Danis til he needs a rest or doesn't play well. Until then, Mac needs to sit.
