Give me a break, dude. The guy has only five points in his past four seasons. He's got to produce more at what we're paying him!

Yeah true. He's always floating around the crease, never able to stay on his feet and never uses his size. F******* awful. I mean the guy is 6'0. Never seen him at the offense either. Worst 2-Way player I've ever saw. Should have traded him for a 7th-Round pick. Holland is the worst GM in the league.

 

 

 

 

Did I forget anything ? :D

Yep. He's got hands of stone and he's a slow skater.

Have fun in the minors Mrazek.



If Jimmy had half the 08 team in front of him he would win the Vezina. I am happy for him. Ozzy used to get 18-20 shots a night with the best D in the league in front of him and he is considered a God around here. Jimmy is the only reason we are still in the playoff hunt at all.

Let's have Howard make one cup run before we start throwing Osgood under the bus.

Fine with this as long as we don't pay Flip.



Jimmy has been our MVP the last 3 years

 

2nd behind Datsyuk tbh. Maybe Lidstrom in there as well if you count former Wings

Though you may have believed on stint of Mrazek's one good game in the NHL, and his temporarily hot run in the AHL, that he was going to take the NHL by storm, that notion no doubt seemed more than a tad premature to the front office.

A little late, but I am damn glad we've got Howard buttoned down.  You know what I want out of a goalie?  Consistency.  And I believe Howard is consistent.  Sure, he has a bad game every now and then, but all goalies do.  What he doesn't do is go all bipolar like Fleury, and I appreciate the heck out of that.  Nor does he have self-confidence issues like Luongo; when he plays bad, he accepts it, gets over it, and bounces back.  Another thing unlike Luongo: he flips the switch in the playoffs, even when the rest of the team forgets to.  And come on, if he can play decently in front of THIS defense, he'll be just fine in front of a real one.  Rask's contract is up this year, and Lundqvist's is up next year.  Obviously they're going to re-sign with the same teams, but I wonder what you'll all say when you see how much THEY get.

They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

If the AAV is $5.3 million, that's about right for Howard.  It certainly isn't a "bargain", though there are plenty of goalies around the league that make $6 to $8 million per that play at or below Howard's level. 

There really isn't that many.  In the entire league, there are only 5 goalies that make between $6-7 million.  Higgest paid goalie (Rinne) makes $7 million.  All those guys would have signed in bigger spending days as well (at least theoretically).

Considering the way he has played the last few games for the Griffins, Mrz has a ways to go.  I figure he will get another full season while Monster and Jimmy are with the Wings next season, and then Mrz will be up to push Jimmy for a spot in 2014-2015 depending on how he has done.  So far, I like what I see, but he has some work to do.  The playoffs this season will speak volumes for him.

We won against the Preds last night 3-0 with an empty netter.  Jimmy had what?...13-14 shots in the 1st period, stopped a breakaway on our PP and then a penalty shot he also stopped.  Yeah, Howard sucks and absolutely can't steal a game.

In what way was I throwing Ozzy under the bus? I was clearly stating that Ozzy was playing behind some of the best defense in the league and he did not have to carry his team night in and night out. Jimmy does.

He's done well for about 20 games in a row now.

 He's had maybe 2-3 bad games all year.  One of them he had sight issues against the Preds.  Either way, we have a great #1 goalie for 6 more years and his last few he'll have Mrazek, Patterson and that 6'5 giant pushing him for playing time and his spot.

I have to chuckle at some of the skepticism surrounding Howard. I don't think he's the top goalie in the league, but he's not the problem. Not by a long shot.

 

Offensively, this team is on the outside looking in. 19th or 20th in the league in scoring, last I checked. You don't make the playoffs scoring fewer than 2.5 goals per game, and if you do, it's because your goalie carried you there.

 

True, Howard has had issues recently in shutouts. But look at the Chicago game -- one SO goal in 5 attempts (by the Wings). You can pin that OT loss on Howard, but to me it's more evidence that this team's real problem lies elsewhere.

I'm not sure why there's a "signed" tag on this thread.  Maybe I missed the report, but I'm pretty sure he has NOT re-signed.  They just said they were close and had agreed on most terms.  Is there a source anywhere saying this is actually completed?
