Well, I hadn't pictured it that way, but now that you bring it up... Posted Image

I'm sure J-4 is just as glad it was a glove save and not a blocker save!


Or a kick save!

“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'm really worried that Howard was more busy procreating than he was working on his glove hand.

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I find it amazing those people that are complaining about Jimmy taking one game off. Hockey is his job and just like any of us, the men would expect to take time off of their job to be with their new baby AND they probably get paid as well. Family should always come first even if you are an NHL player.

Thanks Offsides

Did someone already make a joke about Howard's wife and her five hole being as open as her husbands?

Why, no. No one has been that uncouth. Until now. :P

I heard they don't think much of you, either.


Lol thats a pretty dumb comment. I am sure they could care less what some random fan thinks.. I sure would not. Hell I don't care what you think of me either. Either way as I said if he plays well I will eat crow as I am man enough to admit I was wrong but Saturday left a bad taste in my mouth.

It's going to have to be one hell of a third period. I'll tell you that.

It must suck to be happy the team lost so you can say "I told you so" about one player. Geez Louise. Imagine if we'd won and Conks made 65 saves - we'd never hear from this guy again.

Nah. Then it'd be "Howard doesn't care enough to be the #1 goalie."

Lol I am not happy at all. I am pissed the guy was playing and I am pissed we lost. I don't what you people's issues are but I said he was bad and he was bad. As I said I would eat crow if I am wrong but he looks lost out there and its screwing the team. Its really too bad they did not land Vokoun as a starter and this issue would not even exist.

Nah. Then it'd be "Howard doesn't care enough to be the #1 goalie."


Um I like Howard..he has his flaws but so does everyone. I am not mad at him for taking a day off to spend time with his family as I am not MindFly. Why are you all hating so bad. Way to be assholes... maybe everyone on HF is right... this board is full of blind homers and if you say something against crappy players you get pushed out.

Who cares what people on another forum say about this place? I sure as hell don't. I'm glad you do, though.

Again- Who would you rather see backing up Howard? Backup goalies are just that, backups. Yeah, he gave up bad goals in the last couple games, but is it his fault that the team around him was only able to score two total goals in these two games?

The pitchforks that come out after EVERY loss has officially gotten tired. Last I checked, they dress a whole team for every game. This is the salary cap era, when are people going to learn that they can't put 3 lines full of HOFers on the ice? If you don't like it, then don't watch the games or follow the NBA instead...

2 days later????
In the real world I get 2 weeks to spend with my baby, I am actually taking almost a full month with PTO and I work from home. If my boss said I need you back to work in two days I would have to really consider telling him to shove it. Luckily I work for a really good company.

Just because these guys play a sport does't make them something other than Human. He is a first time father (a stress you could never understand unless you have been there and I am still experiencing pre-birth stress), give the man a chance to appreciate the moment and get to know his baby before he is off on the road for weeks at a time.

Speaking of family, does the FMLA have bearing in the NHL? So if Howard wanted the two weeks Paternity leave FMLA affords, could he take it?

Sidenote and has no bearing on the topic!

It used to be you avoided this board in the off-season to miss the BS, then it was off season and trade deadline, then off season, trade deadline, and after a loss.

Now it looks if you want to read intelligent posts (which used to be 90% of the posts on here) you need to pilfer through, I need a filter for LGW like I have for my inbox, crap, and then stuff I want to read and actually debate, if I were to disagree.

For the love of me I can not figure out why anyone would say he should have been in net over spending time with his Newborn.

This happens almost every year, and the Wings consistently give their players time to be with their families, and members of this board continue to act like they would be there for the birth in skates, and then bolt to practice the minute the baby comes out! Hell why not just tell him to skype to the hospital and he can watch it via webcam and not miss a practice or morning skate. They could put it on the jumbo tron if it happens during a game!
