And the hits keep coming. Although maybe a nice rest will do Howie some good.

Gus can handle it and we have Petr as back up so I'm not worried.

Another Winter Classic for a Wings back-up?

This Every season has been a nightmare of injuries.

 

I can't remember the last full season the Wings were relatively healthy.

It's a bad sign that my gut reaction was "that's good". Gus is playing lights-out and deserves more consistent starts. We need to start getting points before we slip any further unfortunately a Gus-Mrazek tandem looks like our best bet. Howard needs to rest and reset mentally.

All in all that's not the worst thing that could happen. It will give us a chance to see what Gus can really do as a starter without creating too much of a goalie controversy. Mrazek should get a start or two in that span as well. Howard will get a chance to clear his head a bit and hopefully comes back looking like the Howard from seasons past.

Tough..thankfully monster has played in about 12 games this year so he's not jimping in rusty. Get better Howie and hopefully you'll bounce back when you're healthy and play awesome.

Get well soon Howy, monster can handle the load. Glad, he has already 12 games under his belt, so he won't come in rusty.

Gus certainly has a good win column but im not exactly confident when he or Jimmy is in net right now.

Our 3rd period let downs and failure to stomp on the throats of teams we are beating leaves any Wings netminder vulnerable. Team needs to step up the 'compete level' secure some 2pt games in Howies absence

This is somehow Quincey's fault...


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

There's a lot less angry vitriol on this thread than I anticipated.
