Per Ansar KHAAAAAAN!!!

 

Wings recalled goalie Jonas Gustavsson from his conditioning stint in Grand Rapids and reassigned Petr Mrazek to Griffins.

 


"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

I wish I could get excited, but its only gonna be just as bad for Monster.  I believe that M-Raz is better than both Howie and Monster, but if you aren't going to address to crap defense, it doesn't matter who is in goal.  Good news that Monster is healthy, but I have a feeling its not gonna help the Wings....Welcome back Jonas! Pull that seatbelt one more notch and hold on!

Woo! Motor city monster! Tho I agree, I like what I've seen out of mraz more, and I'd rather have other guys back from injury but it's nice to see a couple of our guys starting to come back.. Hopefully others quickly follow *fingers crossed*

I know this was coming especially after Babcock's little post-game interview. Last night showed that the kid needs more time in the minors to develop. I'm not blaming the game on him, because he certainly made some outstanding saves, and kept us along. The first one should've been avoided regardless if he saw it or not. That stick needs to be covering the 5-hole at all times, it shouldn't just find itself a black hole in the universe. The second one that went 5-hole same thing, but at least this time he just didn't get down in time, and openly admitted it. He legitimately got beat on one goal last night. Is there future with him? Absolutely! It's good to see that we have someone in the pipeline that will have a future with us, he certainly is going to get better and better but he needs time with the goalie coaches. Monster will get more trust with the franchise and I think we'll be seeing more split time now.

What? The kid played one good game and is arguable the future of goaltending for this franchise but he was terrible yesterday..when Jimmy plays bad you blame Jimmy but when Mraz plays bad it's the d in front of him.  I know I know you drink your own blend of cool aid but Mraz belongs back in the minors for now.he will get his shot.

If you guys want a laugh, go read the comments on the post the official red wings facebook made. It seems like more than half the fanbase on facebook doesn't know how hockey works.

I wouldn't say he played horrible, the first goal he couldn't see the puck, he let in a soft one off a faceoff, butthe rest of the game he seemed to play pretty well, and bailed us out a few times. All in all, goaltending is the least of our worries currently

Saw it coming, Mraz definitely shows potential to be very good. Right now it's Howard and Gustavasson's show.

 

Cleary needs to start producing 1 points in 15 games playing 20+ shifts a game while taking  isn't good enough.

The alarming thing about Cleary is he has 11 minor penalties. The next closest forward on the team only has 5, after that it's 3. So Cleary accounts for 30% of our forward's penalties this season and he has third most in the entire league. I just cannot fathom what Babcock is doing putting Cleary out there so often. It just doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

Maybe babs is betting against the wings. Cleary does a good job of making sure we don't score when he's out there. He also trys hard to take penalties if the other team seems to want to score

I don't care what anyone says, Monster will not make a difference.  He may even be worse.

True but not using a free agent you signed is a dumb move.

Why is there any argument against this move? Yea mraz is good and quite possibly the future here but he was only up because monster was injured.. If monster were healthy mraz would have been in GR the whole time.

It's better for Mrazek to be in GR, where he will get the majority of starts.  While he did get 2 starts up here, developmentally it's better for him to get more Grand Rapids starts than to keep track of faceoffs from Detroit's bench.

No one is saying not to use him.  Why would you sit any player you're playing millions of dollars.  I'm hoping for the best but not expecting much.

No one is saying it's a bad move.  Petr should be in GR.  I'm just not excited about Monster as a back up.  I hope he does well, however.

Mraz is what 20? he needs to be in GR playing 3 out of 4 games. We have a great starting G in Howard. let the kid play with zero pressure and develop. After next season he may be ready to be the backup.

I think monster will exceed expectations. He was the best backup available when we signed him IMO and I was glad we did.
