Damn, I wish Jimmy could figure out what is vexing him and get back on track.

What happens when you put together a bad year from Jimmy Howard and missing time with an injury? You get the abomination we all had the privilege of watching tonight.

Just saw the "highlights" Damn, I wish Jimmy could figure out what is vexing him and get back on track. Not as much help from the D as there has been in the past.

You can't blame this one the D. Just can't. The worst defensive breakdown was probably on the 4th goal and that was a rather weak shot along the ice, one that most goalies in the NHL excel at stopping. Gustavsson for example is great at taking away the bottom of the net. It somehow got under Howie though. 

 

Then there were a couple of unscreened wrist shots. At least 1 or 2 HAVE to be stopped by a #1 goalie. 

 

The Classic could get ugly if Howard is indeed starting.

And this is why I can't stand Babcock.

Babs likes to take 'the more you struggle, the more I'm gonna play you' approach, and hey, who can argue with the results? just ask Cleary and Quincey, living proof of a system that works!

At least they scored four goals.  It could have been worse, as we have seen this season. 

 

They just can't really seem to put together the "we've figured out how to put the puck in the net" days with the "we've figured out how to stop the puck" days.  They have, however, figured out how to do neither on occasion.

I still think this team has what it takes to go deep if they get this stupid 24/7 thing out of their heads and focus on  wins but they also are all thinking about the Olympics I think this has a lot to do with it im not making excuses but this plus the injuries this year are stopping this team from having any chemistry the  need to start over on the 1st different year different aspect


try to get something by me i dare you

Ive been one of the biggest Howard defenders on here this year. Tonight is the first night I can honestly say there is no defending his play. Giving up 5 goals to one of the worst offensive teams in the league. 3 goals you would expect a junior goalie to be able to handle with ease. Sickening.

Jesus, it's as if because you're on the internet it's accepted to act like a ten year old imbecile. It's a constant bitchfest on just about everyone's part, where people wake up each day and decide to express their daily whims(few of which hold any sense). The only thing that is a bigger mess than this team right now is this board. It sounds like a majority of you look at the previous page and see everyone bashing on a given subject so you do it too because it's the cool thing to do.

What an impulsive bunch. Howard's not some second year tweener with no track record. He's 29 years old on his fifth season in the nhl. He's stood on his head and performed among the leagues top goalies year after year. Took the team team to the playoffs, on a major account of his consistent play. Way to not overreact everyone.

But you're right, sit him for the season, and see if he can come back next year.

What the hell are you talking about? Howard was bad today he was the reason we lost the game seeing that does not make one an imbecile. I'm a big Howard fan and have been for years, but that doesn't mean I'm going to live in denial about the quality of his play. I by no means want to bench him for the season but I have no problem admitting how bad he has played. Just because I'm a fan doesn't mean I'm going to bury my head in the sand. Anyway, that's my perspective everybody is entitled to their own.

And Howard didn't play good today; Babcock said so himself. Have a little faith in something though. Playing him Wednesday in a premier game like this is the right choice, because he's the number 1 coming off an injury. If I would count on any goalie in the league to come out of a funk like this it'd be Howard, because he's shown such consistency.

So... you would have preferred that the team just suck it up on all fronts?  It is worse that they were actually capable of generating offense, albeit in a losing effort due to terrible goal tending... that's worse than it would have been if they had gotten shut out 5-0 or 6-0?  I do not agree or I misunderstand your point of view.  Please explain.

The Wings lose. We complain. One of us complains about our complaining. Banality ensues. Babs promotes Cleary to the first line.

I think I get where he's coming from. It's the sheer facepalmness of it all. We're down 3-1, looks like it's going to be twelve games before we score another goal. "Man," we think, "if only we could score three goals in this here third period. Wouldn't that be something?" Dats gets us off to a great start, our offense comes alive in the third period...and we lose, 6-4. *palmface*
