Some people seem to think that we have Jacques Plante in net. We don't, and Jimmy Howard is making the best of it with pretty much all rooks in front of him.

There are so many answers to the question, but they all translate into "no".

He is average. But there are no options worth mentioning. Norm Miracle ain't walkin through that door.

I just don't understand posts like this.  Jimmy has been the rock that kept this team alive.  So dumb

and you're honestly going to try and say that Norm Maracle was/is better than howie? that is just ridiculous, he couldn't even make it in the nhl as a back up

He hasnt looked great this series, bit I admitted that he was phenominal during the 2nd half. I always listen to arguments and admit when I am wrong or was wrong, unlike some others on here.

As much as I dislike Howard, no he shouldn't.  Howard has been exactly what he is this series.  Nothing more, nothing less.  Our problem is our complete lack of offense and our largely rookie (AND LOLQUINCEY) defense.  Benching Howard won't change either of those. 

 

Besides, I don't think Gustavsson is any better.

Average top 6. Young and rookie packed bottom 6. Average defense. Not very tough across the board.

Howard has been a shing star when you consider all that

I just find it funny that this season when the Wings cannot score its their teams fault...rightly so...but in 2003 when the Wings couldn't score it was CuJo's fault...I understand the love for Howard, but its the same situation. The Wings must score to win. Goalies need to make the big stops all the time, but that won't ever happen. Bad goals happen. You just have to score to win.

 

I hate the CuJo haters. He could've led this team far in the playoffs if that spineless idiot Dave Lewis did his job.

Come back to me when Z stops with the blind backhand passes in his own zone, when Flip stops with the drop passes to the Ducks behind his own net, and when Smith and Quincey show that they're physically capable of controlling a puck with their stick.

 

Because right now we are gifting the Ducks most of their chances.  Easily 2/3 of their goals are off Wings turnovers.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I keep checking back to this thread just to see how many "No" votes have built up since the OP started this madness.
