NHL Network's top 10 saves of 09-10

Apr 7, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

The NHL Network shares its top 10 goals of the season. Gotta say, the Kipper save (#1) was indeed pretty awesome but I might have to go with the runner-up, J.D. Deslauriers. It just seems more thrilling, but I guess these things are subjective. What do you think was the best save of the 09-10 season?

    I was surprised how many top saves were only because of misplays on the goalie’s part.
    Sort of like when you’re playing catch in a pool and have your friend throw the ball away from you to dive and look spectacular.
    I agree, Deslauriers should be #1.

    Haha, I’ve become a lot more cynical about what makes a great save too. Good point.

    ps. James O’Brien,
    I couldn’t find any contact info to email either you or Brandon, but leaving a single comment will sometimes take several minutes to respond with a ‘comment posted successfully’ screen. I’ve tried leaving 3-4 comments and only one eventually went through. This has been from a few different computers. Just letting you know…
    Maybe this has something to do with a phenomenal blog having so little reader interaction?
