    I fully agree.  It's just one of those buzzwords that is spewed by the media guys (and the parrots here).  It makes zero sense.

    Those of us who have played the game know what it means...

    Pretty sure Andy Brickley knows what he is talking about.

    Is timley hitting in baseball a media spewed term?

    Quite possibly the most overrated phrase IMO is "the vulnerable minute"

    I played the game for 13 years. I was never a superstar and many guys including Brickley know a hell of a lot more about hockey then I do.  I played defense, I never skated off the ice after my line had given up a goal, particularly in a close game, and thought that it was okay.  I love Brick except when we are on Versus but I still don't understand what these guys mean when they say this.  I think more often then not they are talking about tough saves in a close game I just don't think timely is the proper term.

    I laugh at the "most dangerous lead in hockey".  Yeah, I'd say up by one is more dangerous than up by two.

    Actually the 2 goal lead is commonly referred to as "the most dangerous lead in hockey"..which is what was said....

    Re: Timely Saves

    I would say a "timely save" would be one where the goalie makes a great save and immediately after that, his team goes down the other end and scores.  So without the save, his team doesn't score.  That's "timely".
