This seems rather premature. Making comments when angry often isn't a good idea.

No. I've been saying it a long time already. Many of you are just blinded by the Jimmy-hype. He's 26. He isn't fundamentally nowhere near the top goalies like Miller, Kiprusoff, Luongo, Rask etc.

He lets in softies and many times doesn't bounce back like an elite goalie should. I'll be happy if he'll be as good as Ozzie was at his prime. This season has just been a decent goalie playing better than he really is, though.
Detroit Red Wings & Tampereen Ilves forever!

I'd rather they missed the playoffs. All they did this time was waste our time and put us through the emotional roller coaster that is playoff disappointment.

I swear there was a few moments there where I was convinced they were trying to lose. Lots of lackadaisical play, soft passes, and overall carelessness with the puck.

I'll still be rooting for em in game 4, but part of me just wants to get it over with and put us out of our misery.

Howard is a rookie. How many elite goaltenders were elite in their rookie season? It's not like Howard has been in the NHL for 3 years. Give him next season at least.

We had 1 PP and 1 PS. That said, all the non-calls where Sharks should have received a penalty ultimately would have made a huge difference!

The Sharks Powerplays in Series 22
The Wings Powerplays in Series 11
Seems odd that there is such a large disparity, I believe all the other series are pretty much even, 2 maybe. I am not a conspiracy believer, but I do believe that the refs are looking the other way to what San Jose is doing! I find it very frustrating as a hockey fan to watch these games and to watch supposed professional referees tip the ice in favor of one team!

Dude, we get it, you don't like Howard. You can quit posting on every single page now.


Blame it on Howard and not me.

If he didn't give up those softies, I wouldn't be posting about him.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Yup. I dont see how anyone can fault Jimmy for that one. The 3rd goal is another story though...

But anyway Ericsson is a nightmare.


Ericsson had an awful game tonight. But he hasn't been the worst d-man on the team in these playoffs.

On an unrelated note-- Kronwall needs to step up offensively. He just hasn't been himself since returning and he was absolutely critical to our success in 08 and near success in 09.

If the team didn't sit back in the 3rd you would be celebrating right now. Howard did not play well and let in 2 softies, but the team did absolutely nothing in the 3rd to win the game. The blame goes all around.

I see your point but Howard is not a young guy making his way into the league. He's 26 and had a lot of chances to prove himself. He was good during the regular season but lets too many soft goals and he is unable to control his rebounds so much that I don't know if its something he can fix at this point. We can't pin these losses on him alone but I don't see him being an elite goaltender in the NHL.

People act like Howard came out of nowhere.

This guy has been among the elite goalie prospects since '03.

The potential is there, this was a very successful first season. He's clearly not had the best playoffs, but the Wings just aren't a Stanley Cup caliber team and that can make it look like it's Howard costing us more then he probably is.

It's not like he is putting on his Cloutier mask and letting in 60 footers. He's made some huge saves, and has kept the Wings in close games. He may not have out dueled Nabokov, but for a first playoff experience it could have been far far worse.

It's not time to give up on him, he's going to get better. Now I wouldn't give him a whole lot of string to work with, but he's earned a good chance to be the goaltender for this team. He was far and out our regular season MVP and we should all look forward and cheer for him, because the sky is the limit.
