He's definitely making his case to be the #2 goalie.

Will the Red Wings waive Conklin and send him to GR? Or will they send Joey back to GR and claim they want to "maintain their assets"? I'm not sure how long Joey has until he's no longer waiver-exempt or whatever. Isn't it a 30-day period or something like that?

I considered today a big game, it wasn't the playoffs, and it really didn't make a determination in the standings, but considering what was on the line with the home win record, Joey solidified himself even more. If this were the workplace and Joey was displaying this kind of work ethic right now, i'd say "your hired" and figure out the rest later. The Wings can't justify sending him back down once Howard returns after what he's done for us these past few weeks.

I actually caught him salute the fans after a save when they were cheering too in the middle of gameplay. :clap:

Saw that. How many times does the crowd start a chant for the third goalie just called up?

Aside from the defensive breakdown with *30f****** SECONDS LEFT* he made some killer saves.

Good back up stats - 6 GP 4W 1L 1OTL 142 SA 132 SV .930SV% 1.72 GAA

Bad back up stats - 11 GP 3W 5L 0OTL 263 SA 231 SV .878SV% 3.40 GAA

This isn't a competition anymore. Joey has won the job, he'll play back to back's the rest of the year, he'll sit on the bench and work the clip board. Nuff said.

I agree, but the backups to the best teams in the NHL are playing every 4 games. I would rather see Joey playing more often than just on back to back days. Keep him fresh and ready for action. Part of the problem with Conklin was the fact that he wasn't getting steady starts. If they are going to keep Joey up, then put him to work every so often.
