It's clearly the best thread, kudos.  I'll be back soon ;)


Thanks. I think it makes for good discussion. Looking forward to seeing you back at it!

 I googled similier and it's actually not a word.

 

The only goalie in the past 20 years that hasn't used stupid huge pads is Brodeur.  He is the best goalie ever to play the game and he doesn't cheat and he doesn't get rattled.  Howard has been af****** superstar the past 5 games that's for sure.  Problem is that aside from the game in Vancouver, we can't seem to get the bounces to top 2 friggen goals.

 

20 years is pushing it. Do you perhaps mean that he's the only great goalie of the past 20 years to not do so? If so, you forgot Hasek.



Howard has been great the last 3 or 4 starts...I am still not happy with his rebound control and warned of it biting him in the a$$ eventually and it did last night, it cost him the shutout..

 

No, Datsyuk failing to cover Stastny cost Howard the shootout. Howard had not the faintest chance of controlling the rebound on that shot.

Among goalies who have played at least 15 games this season, the average save percentage is .911% So on the season, sure, Jimmy's save percentage has been around average.

 

However, a save % of .955 (7 goals on 175 shots, 29 Shot/gm avg.) in the last 6 games is most certainly not average. Unless I've missed something, only Crawford, at .962%, has a better save percentage than Howard in the past 6 games.

Well... if it wasn't for those two shutouts he would've let in more!!!  :lol:

Yes, yes. We all get it at this point. Howard has played amazing the last stretch, and has been the reason the Wings have won or gotten a point in many of the recent contests. Every goaltender has hot and cold streaks. The thread was started during a cold streak and has been 'bumped' and beaten to death during the hot streak.

 

Jimmy Howard is a great goaltender when he is hot and an average goaltender when he is cold. Jimmy Howard is a GOOD goaltender. Not the greatest, not the worst. Moving on...

Howard has been great the last 3 or 4 starts...I am still not happy with his rebound control and warned of it biting him in the a$$ eventually and it did last night, it cost him the shutout...he still got the win and that is probably more important to him anyhow, but he needs to get that rebounding under control because I would hate for it to cost us a Cup one day...

 

Good on Jimmy though! He was told he needs to be better and he has been...the two saves last night that he made one on one were just ridiculous.  To use a Mickey-ism, he "Stood on his chin" with those two saves for sure! The one (not the breakaway) has to be in the NHL plays of the week by far! If it isn't then sometime is rotten in Coopersville...an it ain't the cow manure...

 

His rebound control is definitely not the strong part of his game but our D has done a great job of clearing rebounds and boxing guys out ( like basketball) from getting to those rebounds.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

Here I am at the Avs game on tuesday watching our beloved defense almost giving up a tying goal with seconds remaining in the game. All of a sudden, Jimmy Howard reaches his blocker out to make the game ending save. Not to mention facing 39 SHOTS! He is the reason why we are still alive for a playoff berth.

Who carried a Z-less, homer-less, and even pasha-less team from 9th and floundering at the olympic break into 5th and playoffs in 2010?

 

Who played his ass off in games 4-6 to force a 7th vs San Blows Eh in 2011?

 

Who was playing at a vezina pace until he suffered 2 injuries last year?

I rest my case.  There are many, MANY worse goalies out there than Howard.  Remember how we beat up on Ozzie?

Howie has a 1.4 GAA, a 94% save percentage, and 2 shutouts over the last 7 games. I think that's a little more than average. The beginning of the year is most likely due to him being rusty after not playing during the lockout
