Is Todd Bertuzzi our super backup if all else fails? I vaguely recall Ken and Micky mentioning this at one point years ago...

How come so many NHL teams have goalies in the minors no one has heard of, who can instantly come into the lineup and hold their own?  We see that every year from several teams.    

 

Yet, this team has McCollum to fall back on from the AHL.  Figures.  

 

The Wings need to do a better job developing goalies in their farm system.  Then we don't have to scramble for s***ty or injured backups every year.  

Hasn't McCollum been playing pretty well in the AHL lately? Then there's Mrazek. We've also had McDonald who has jumped in and played great for us when Howie's been injured. 

 

I pray Howard's body holds up, but sooner or later he needs a rest anyway. If Gus is out a long time it's a great time for McCollum or Mrazek to prove themselves.

McCollum is there just in case, they know he is not good, I feel if howie needs a night off they will bring Mrazek in to sit between the pipes considering he is much better than McCollum. MacDonald is still suffering from that back injury he suffered last year, which is why McCollum is up.

I thought I read somewhere that Jimmy is injured and won't be in tonight, I will see about locating the article...

 

This is all I can find - from and article in the Freep (Saturday's edition) titled "Jimmy Howard grinds it out night after night as only healthy Red Wings goaltender."

 

Coach Mike Babcock said Howard will get his eighth straight start of the season tonight at Columbus.

I don't know...I'd hate to throw Petr in there just yet.  I'm sure he would relish the challenge but... hate to ruin his confidence if it doesn't go well.  Then again, I'm not sure that Petr is that kind of person that wouldn't just bounce right back and shrug it off..

But if he got rocked in a game at nhl level don't you think that would moreso motivate him to fix the aspects of his game that weren't nhl ready and give him a better idea of what they were?

Put in McCollum or Mrazek, its time. Remember when the Caps were forced to call up Holtby a couple seasons back? He was 17-10-2 in the AHL, then went 10-2-2 when called up to the NHL. Sometimes the big league brings out the best in the kids.

Having heard about all of his physical and psychological woes while in Toronto, I didn't think too much of this signing.

Nothing worse than a backup goaltender who's hurt most of the time.

Mrazek called up to the wings.. Could end up starting a game. But also, this is a better sign than I've seen yet....

They're going to have to do something soon before Howard ends up starting the first 20 games in a row.  The man is gonna need a break at some point before we gas him going into the post season.
