Jonas. Just because I want Petr to get A LOT OF starts in gr.

 

This.  And Mrazek will still probly get 5-10 starts for the Wings anyway given Gustavsson's injury history.


"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 have very little faith in Gustavsson, the sooner someone replaces him the better.

 

As far as I can see the guy is going to loose his job this summer, unless something really magical happens nothing but a disappointment in Detroit. He should have never been signed Joey McDonald was a better backup to Howard and cheaper.

Voted other. I think Mrazek should get another season in GR plus a few call ups. I dont like Gustavsson very much, so I would prefer someone else.

I voted monster.

 

not because I like him better (I'm stoked for mraz) but, because 1. we're paying him no matter what, might as well play him. 2. I think he's better than he's shown so far in hockeytown. and 3. I think mraz would benefit from a little more AHL time. (he'll be up when monster's contract expires anyway)

 

also, if monster's injuries continue, that decision gets made automatically..

I want to see Mrazek in net for the wings ever 4th game, but he should be in GR playing 3 out of every 4 games.

I said Jonas only because I think it would be better for Mrazek to get more ice time then bench time. Once Mrazek is the official backup I would hope for Babs to work them into a 1A-1B tandem (like we had with Hasek and Osgood) so Howie gets more rest and Mrazek gets more then  5 games per year

 

EDITED: But with "Glass Groin" Gus it looks like Mrazek will be the backup

Monster, for the same reason already stated numerous times, give Mrazek time in GR, let him get ample run, nothing like sitting on the bench for 60 games to kill your mojo!

I'm in the same boat as most here, for this year and possibly next, I say we go with monster as the backup and let petr get better in GR. After that Kenny needs to decide if we have a great 1-2 goalie group or get some needed depth in return.

This exactly.  Need to read no further.

Well, tbh, he did get a lot of starts last season and won a Calder Cup but it wouldn't hurt him to play at least one more season.  I suspect he'll be up a few times this season.

More than likely out of necessity not want, Monster will probably battle at least one injury this season.

I like Mrazek.  A lot.  I think he's going to be a very good to great goalie, and I want to see him in a Wings uniform for a long time.  But not this year.  I'd rather he play 50-55 games in GR than 15-20 in Detroit.  Call him up occasionally for a spot start, yes.  Call him up if one of the Wings' goalies gets hurt.  And if Howard has to miss any games (knock on wood!!) then Mrazek takes over and Gustavsson remains the backup.  Next year, if Mrazek has another season like last year, he becomes the backup.  Over the length of Howard's contract, Mrazek should play more games each year, transitioning into the starter's role as Howard ages.

Keep him in GR, a goalie of his potential needs to be a regular starter.

 

PS I believe he eats at his waiver exempt status whether he starts or rides the pine.

Mrazek is already better than monster. Him being the starter in GR though will develop him more than sitting on the bench in Detroit right now. The best thing for young players is ice time. No matter where that is. No need to rush a good thing when we are already solid in net with Jimmy. Mrazek had a great first season in the pros. You don't want him having a sophomore slump in the NHL. That can sidetrack his progress.

I hardly agree with that, Mrazek still hasn't shown what he can on an NHL level. Monster should have signed with the Stars, take advices from Lethonen and being developed slowly to the north american style, the Leafs sadly had to rush him because Toskala was horrendous.

The guy has all the talent in the world, I hope he can put it together soon and has a long succesful NHL carreer.

If the game against Pittsburgh is any indication, Mrazek isn't better than Gustavsson yet. Mrazek let in several goals that were not at all the fault of the defense.

What goalie have you been watching? Mrazek has two NHL regular season performances under his belt, one of them very good and the other quite bad. His single preseason bout went poorly. This is performance typical of goalies who are talented but inexperienced; inconsistency is the hallmark of the majority of goaltenders in that category. Some youngsters can come in and play with excellence from the start, but they are rare.

Mrazek.  I understand the arguement of getting him playing a ton of games in GR...but this kid is a quick study.

He's got the stuff he needs now. 

 

Jonas is a bust for us in my opinion.  I agree with St. Michael (the Red Wing)...let's have a lights out combo now!
