Another goalie who thinks he knows how to handle pucks.

I'm not a goalie, just observant of how he plays

This might be getting a little heated. Just know I don't hate any of you guys.

 

That doesn't mean that I respect ideas & opinions. Some ideas & opinions are ridiculous.

 

In fact, if you confront my ideas & opinions, that will lead to a discussion. (We're on a discussion board after all. Don't forget that!)

But he doesn't have to s*** on this team in such an important game.  

Every game lately has been important. And he's been great in all of them. Allowing 3 goals is hardly s***ting on your team. Sooner or later this offense will have to bail Howie out in a game. That's happened like once this season that I can recall. Scoring 1-2 goals per game isn't good enough.

Wow what a joke of an effort when the season is hanging in the balance. Although I will keep up hope the very end, I am really kind of hoping they end up not making it because such a finish will almost FORCE Holland to make some moves ( ;) ) and get rid of the dead weight. 

 
Nah.
 
Holland will sign some washed up trash in the offseason, and be afraid to "overpay" for anyone else.  

This team won't look much different next year, except we'll be a little younger with Cleary and Bertuzzi gone, and replaced by GR players.

But there still won't be any sniper or big, physical forwards here.

Sport's announcer"s keep saying game after game it seems that the wing's are struggling to find the back of the net. I think they need to look at that statement. Tonight is a good example. The Flames has a great goalie and he stopped many shot's on goal. Made some awesome plays unlike our goalie. Even if we make it to the playoffs we don't stand a chance with Howard !!!!!!!!

Who thinks Babcock will take any responsibility for the team's loss?  Or will he just say, "I think we played good tonight, puck didn't go our way but that's hockey, we just have to forget about tonight and get ready to play the next game."
 

I'm so bored of that sequence.

Jimmy's allowed to have a s***ty game.  Some of our players have had a s***ty entire (half) season.  Blaming Jimmy?  Really?  This board...sometimes I feel like I'm being trolled hard.  I'm just gonna...go over here...

That one is on Jimmy, period. He has been great but I do wonder what happens to the smug "Jimmy is average /sarcasm" crowd when he takes the s*** he took tonight.

This team is playing pretty pitiful top to bottom considering the position they are in.

 We found the back of our own net just fine ... 2x.

It's not how many goals he allowed, it's how he allowed them.

 

Make the other team beat you.  Don't give them the game.

Howard's stats for the season are fine. Even now, with this mediocrity on front of him. We need to score more than twice to win.

This team just never seems to seize their chances to improve in the standings. Unfortunately at some point they will have to win one more game tham Columbus.

Still five games though.

Your franchise goalie is absolutely not allowed to have a s***ty game when the playoffs are on the line. That's why he is your franchise goalie and why you pay him what you do.

Sure he is allowed a s***tty game once in a while BUT we don't have a whole lot more games to throw down the toilet.  

 

Sure the team all changed at once on that third goal but he should have handled the puck and bat it to center field.

Everyone is talking about scoring goals tonight. 2 goals should beat a team when they only put 17 shots on net and have one PP opportunity.

Just calling it what it is. When Jimmy is great, we call him great. Tonight folded like a lawn chair.

There was a lot of open netting for us to shoot into tonight and we never found it!
