What do you think about this??
I don't agree with it, I think Lehtonen played a great game on game 1 and doesnt deserve to be benched

Not good...Hedberg's just not the same.

So NYR won. It's only the first game, don't bench your best goalie before the series gets rolling! Here comes another of my constant references to Lake Placid: the Russians pulled Tretjak because he played a crappy first period and they lost. (Of course, that's a good thing in that case () but it's an example of what not necessarily to do)

I think this is a serious insult to Lehtonen. It's the first playoff game in Thrashers history and already they've lost faith in him? He made some killer saves and even though he looked a little shaky, it was to be expected. Not to knock Hedberg because he's not a bad goalie, but Atlanta has far from a SJ/Nashville/Anaheim-caliber duo that they can flip any game they want. Poor choice.

Ya watching highlights from game 1, why would you even think of benching him, I mean really just becuase you lose the first game doesn't mean it was totally your goalie's fault...
That would be like benching...evgeni malkin because he didn't score in his first playoff game.
