wish we could say the same for you here....


I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

Jimmy looks petty damn elite today.. "Average" is wayy under rating him. He's been great all season long.

Jimmy could stop a million shots, look like Dominik Sawchuk McCujo and some people would not give up their stubborn opinion that he's average. It's pretty obvious to everyone but them that it's just an emotional reaction to seeing one goal they don't think he should've given up, stuff like that. It's ridiculous. You could take a game where he stops 28 of 30, looks amazing, and if we lose 2-1 he's average and if we win 3-2 he's amazing. Same game, different opinion on our goalie based on goals against the other team. That's the difference between Howard and Quick. Nothin' but the team in front of them.

 

When you support a team you usually react emotionally and knee jerk opinions are formed.

The team in front of Howard is better than the one in front of Quick

Call me crazy but I'd call 37 saves on 38 shots thru two periods an elite performance..

I'd hate to see the score of this game if he was a below average goalie. Thank god for average Howie.

Three goals allowed on 71 shots in two games over less than 24 hours.

 

I'll take it!

If 45 saves on 47 shots in one game is average, there are no elite goalies.

Howie is great and getting better every game.

To be fair the kings offense is also the worst offense in the league.

worst offense gets 47 shots (at least half of which were scoring chances)?

 

Howie is a great tender. I'll just calmly accept the fact that no matter how good he plays, some people will always underrate him.

Fair enough, but they still are the defending Cup champs. They were getting chances all day. They have offensive firepower, albeit not starting well so far this season. And Jimmy was coming off a hard fought game yesterday. As hard as he worked today, he deserves some credit.

 

I wonder what it will take for Jimmy naysayers to come around. A Cup? Again, I do not put Jimmy as a Top 5, maybe even 10, goaltenders in the league, but he usually gives the team a chance to win. He is the Wings guy until proven otherwise.

 

The times I have said, "Jimmy was huge today." outweigh the times I have said, "He cost us the game today."

Yeah, when they want to be. But more often than not Howard has to be superhuman. 

 

This topic will go how stuff like this usually goes. Anyone calling him average or below average has to sit here quietly seething, waiting for a bad game so they can full on sprint to their computer and mash out an I TOLD YA SO response. We turn every opinion into a competition to see who is right. No wonder we go back and forth forever.

Ya the team that was easily eliminated in the 1st round and then lost the 2nd best defender of all time while making no major splashes in the FA market is better than pretty much the exact same lineup that won the Stanley Cup. The Kings then outshoot Detroit 47-31 on the road. Are you really and idiot or do you just purposely say idiotic things.

Joey Mac stopped all 42 shots he faced against us a few yrs ago. Musta been super elite
