He wasn't all that bad. We have been spoiled the last 5-6 years with Luongo and now Schnieder. Back in the day Cloutier wasn't too bad. Sure he wasn't a goaltender that you could build a team from (i.e.. Franchise Player) but with the team we had (strong offense) he was decent. Obviously he had some 'bad' moments but what goaltender doesn't?

Low standards?

I'm sure the OP is joking, has to be a joke to be calling beach ball Dan a great.


No its that not all Vancouver fans are idiotic people who lash out at players unfairly

He has the worst save % in NHL playoff history amongst goalies who have as many starts as him. He was appalling most nights.


I have to agree with this. I always felt that if we had solid goaltending in the early 2000's, we would have at least made it to the finals a couple times. Clouts absolutely buckled under pressure. Tried really hard to like him but he was just way to fragile.

I have always defended Cloutier when he was in Vancouver because he displayed heart and had a lot of good moments while playing here. Did you know that before Luongo came to Vancouver, he held almost every Canucks goalie record? His save percentage and goals against averaged wasn't even that bad. He was actually the better goalies to be at a 3 million price tag.

In addition, a lot of greats such as Roy, Brodeur have let in equally as bad goals in the playoffs so I don't understand why people are hating on him that much.

And for the Minnesota series, I think it was the cockiness of Bertuzzi and the team's falling apart which led to them losing. But a lot of fans don't understand this concept, even till today.

The year cloutier got injured and auld kicked butt in net, I ran into clouts in a club downtown and called him auld and thanked him for his hard work in cloutiers absence. Whoops!! He was a good soldier, but very forgettable in net. How about the Minnesota collapse.....

I know it's terrible to say being a Canucks fan, but does anyone else here miss Lidstrom more than Cloutier? I do.

THis.

Dan was actually a pretty good regular season goalie. Didn't hold up to pressure well and not great in the post-season though. Single-handedly lost that Detroit series after letting in that goal from centre ice. Minnesota series... the whole team imploded, not Cloutier's fault.

I loved that group. The team wasn't deep, but our top-end talent was.... well, as top-end as you get. Goaltending was an issue, but also the lockout during that team's "prime" year and the Bert "incident" left them with few chances and ending too soon.

Legend is a strong word...I was a Clouts fan, but not sure he qualifies as a legend.

Closing this, as it easily could have gone into the "miss the old Canucks" thread...
