Amazing isn’t it?

In Jimmy Howard's rookie season he has managed to outplay Osgood for the starter position, took on the pressure of being a Detroit Red Wings goalie, punched Crosby, carried the team when up to 9 roster players were injured, was a key part in achieving a record 19th straight playoff run, is a Calder Trophy candidate, had a great first round including his first ever playoff shutout, and still remains to be pretty humble about all of it.



Jimmy, you had me at ‘punched Crosby’.

He played so great today. He should have had the shutout to, just that one fluke goal. Such a strange one.

But I must be off, I have some jerking off to do. Oh btw I like to consider myself extremely attractive and am proud of myself for being your intellectual superior as I am going to UofM next year, and I am a better hockey player than Crosby.

All in all, he deserved three shutouts this series. He played amazing in those three games.

It would be more funny if the thread was about Howard and not how ripped EZ is.

Ohhh snap.

:huh:

Despite being such a top scholar and comedian, the only thing funny about this post is how it's so awkwardly strung together.

I happily confess that I was 100% wrong about Howard before the start of the season. Based on Jimmy's prior starts I prayed that Ozzie would stay healthy this year. The kid honestly scared me. It's amazing instead how far Howard has come in this short time!

Just before the game ended, I was telling they guys I watch with that my team MVP this year is Ozzie. I believe that he has decided to prove that if he isn't going to play every day that he still can contribute to this teams success. He has stood up for Howie, helped deflect the media scrutiny ( see game 3 postgame ), and made sure there has been no disruptions in the locker room. Then I look back to the TV and it seems like the first guy over the bench to the net is Ozzie. I thought it was fitting he led him though the handshake line.

I found it interesting during the game (if you watched Versus) those two horrible announcers were talking about J-Ho and his lack of success in the AHL (Stats compared to what he did in the NHL) and they said; he was pressuring himself to be perfect, so that he could get to the big club as early as possible. But then learned that if he was patient good things would come his way.

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.

I agree, correct me if I'm wrong but I thought the puck was supposed to hit the ice on a face off? Look like Fiddler just shot it in mid air..

I agree, it's great that there's chemistry between the two. Ozzie's playing his hand well. I'm glad he's not pulled a "Legace" with a "I'm #1, or I'm gone!" 'tude!
