Great game! They looked like a completely different team out there. I wish they would get there collective heads out of their asses and play like this a little more often. Oh, and did I mention? Great game!

That was not the outcome I expected but it was nice to see haha.  Monster had a good game which is nice to see;now do you start him next game (I say YES) or do you start your starter?  Tatar is going to be/already is a fabulous player for us, his skating is very unique kinda looks like Toews out there his strides are so tiny but his feet are flying (just an observation).  Abby looks like his speed has increased ten fold out there too!  My only hope is they keep this rolling  LWG

I just want to point out that 90% of the replies on the 1st page of this thread are complete doom and gloom. It was actually comical going back and reading the posts.

Isles up next. You know they've hit their stride if they beat a team whom they haven't beaten since before Christ.

Best game of the season. Nyquist and Tatar with 2 points. Didn't expect anything out of them with Datsyuk out and of course they rout one of the best teams in the East. LGRW!!!

Look, all I can think of with the Wings these days is the line from Forrest Gump:

A Detroit gang attacked last night and slashed Tuukka Rask's save percentage.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

He never said Monster was going to play every game from now on - Jimmy still has to be given opportunities to play his way back into form.  2 starts for Monster, 1 for Jimmy is a fair ratio for now.


"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

Just because a goalie is hot doesn't mean the other goalie shouldn't get the chance... I think the Isles are a better team to get your confidence back with than the Senators.

Jimmy's starting against the Islanders. Monster's starting against the Senators.

 

Why go that way? Well, consider:

 

- Monster is 6-0-1. That one loss came against...the Islanders

- Jimmy has had some rough games. At least one of them was against...the Senators

 

I assume that's more or less the logic Babs is using.

This franchise has never been afraid to bench goalies like Hasek, Cujo or Osgood.  Don't know why it would be any different with Jimmy "freaking" Howard.

 

If Gustavsson is a better goalie right now, then he needs to start most of the games.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

When Jimmy is at the top of his game he is worth his contract. But, more often then not he isn't. His deal will never be a steal and chances are if he continues the trend of his career and doesn't grow as a goalie this will be an overpayment. He got paid for what we've all seen he's capable of.

If it were March I'd agree, but there's a reason Gustavsson is a backup and Jimmy is a starter. 

 

Howard hasn't been great while Monster has been solid.  But this team is better with Howard playing at the top of his game, so the goal is to get him there.
