It doesn't bother me either way if I can be honest, i'm just thrilled with our goalie situation as a whole. I look at Philly and breathe easy knowing that we have two very talented goaltenders that can win us games going into the playoffs. Start either guy, it looks like we can't lose at this point.

Just for good measure... MAC-ATTACK!

Finding it kind of funny that we all thought the Wings were doomed and would have to spend a bit to bring in a #2. Joey has solidified the backup role. Jimmy needs to get in to shake off the rust Good for Joey ... he just won't give up :)

The Wings need to find a good right shot D though. The #2 PP will just be a waist of time on the PP without one.

I don't know about sitting a healthy Howard for MacDonald, but ya, I do believe we will no backup goalie issues come next season....Howard/MacDonald....set.


Everytime Joey wins I can here him saying... "I'm the migity migity migity migity migity migity Mac!"

edit: Sorry, showing my age there. No Kriss Kross fans left around eh? :lol:


Although I'm no fan of Kriss Kross, I did get the reference. It was chuckle-worthy.
Uhh...you might want to duck!

Joey is getting some attention around the league now for his excellent play. Way to go Joey!

I have no issues if Joey becomes the backup. Lets just treat him like other backups in the league.

Look at Boston and New York for instance. Their backup goalies have played about 15 games so far. Thats an average of every 4th game. If they are going to keep Joey up, then they better play him to keep Howard fresh. There would be no excuse to not start Mac every so often. What I fear is that Howard comes back and they start him 10-12 times in a row and then give Mac a start. You have to keep them both in some kind of rotation where Howard starts 3 and then Joey gets a start or something like that. Otherwise, Mac could get cold sitting on the bench.

I think Babs will get Joey in every 5th game or so the rest of the way. He played Jimmy so much only because he had zero faith in Conklin. Now Jimmy can get in a groove down the stretch and not get worn out. :thumbup:

I don't see how you can take Joey Mac out of the net until he loses. I like Jimmy, but as Mickey would say, MAC is "hotter than a firecracker" right now. Lets ride J-MAC until he loses a game!

Yeah, what a s***ty job Babcock has night-in and night-out. Hmm....which goaltender that can't do anything but win should I play tonight?
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

MAC-SANITY is absolutly right!!!!! He's as big as a MAC truck in that net. I bet all his countrymen are proud of the job he is doing. Joey has been outstanding and if he keeps playing this way Howard better step his game up.

ITS TIME FOR A BIG-MAC ATTACK!
