Are you serious? Watch Thomas on Sunday when he plays the Wings, count how many times he gets caught way out of position like that. I'm not saying Howard needs to play like Thomas, but my god, his positioning has been HORRIBLE the past two months.

I guess to most wings fans, if the goalie isn't centered to the shot, even on a nifty passing play to an uncovered player, its failure on the goalie. Maybe Howard should call Nicholas Cage and ask him how he got that nifty power in the movie "Next". I guess being able to see the future is the key. :P

I guess to blind Wings fans its ok for the goalie to leave the crease on a PK and turn into some sort of defensemen and play the player outside of the blue paint.

Ya because going down way out of your crease when the puck is practically on the back red line is really necessary and is solid positional goaltending.

Thank you.. if anyone doesn't see how Howard wasn't in position is blind as hell. He wasnt even touching blue paint.


Are you goalie?

No, but its called common sense. PK leaving the net = goal. simple. Funny how you don't see other goalies leave there crease like that on a PK.

I hate it when our crappy second year goalie is so bad he leads the league in wins.

Is that relevant?

I don't have to be a forward to critique a forwards play. Don't deflect simply to justify Howard's positioning on that goal.

IMHO, people who have played the game seem to have more relevant analysis when it comes to hockey. Thats just my observation though.

Do goalies let in weak goals or make mistakes on positioning? Yup. Just like defenses blow coverages and forwards turn pucks over. IMHO, if you are going to chew Howard out for crap positioning, then chew the D out for not covering the man in the slot. A lot of blame to go around on that goal, and the idiots blaming one party and only one party for that goal, is dumb.

Everyone on these forums needs to get a center ice sub and watch Lundquist and Thomas for a month, its really eye opening how many "unsavable" goals can be eliminated by rebound control and positioning :)
