We need a #1 D-man - def wins games - our is makeshift & finger crossing hoping it works - hell bring up marchenko from gr; why not? Even when the griffs lose he is still not minus - wth - playoffs or bust(right now it is bust)

He doesn't block shots, because he knows that he's 90% better than all the other #1's in the NHL.

yeah and then reality should set in at some point in the season :)

Played a good game overall. Really needed to win this though for the standings and with the Lightning missing Stamkos and Filppula.

Need a lot of help on defense. Even when the Red Wings control the puck most of the game, the defense gives up far too many quality chances that usually end up in the net. The PP needs to start scoring too.

The Red Wings hung around the playoff race, which is really all you could ask heading into the Olympics. Hopefully they can show some more consistency after the break and get into the playoffs. Holland has to find a way to upgrade the defense before the deadline.

Let's Go USA!

Ben Bishop showed why he deserves the Olympics over Howard. I can bet any money that he wasn't even 100% and he still kept his team in the game. We do not have a Stanley Cup goal tender.

I remember when everyone said that about ozzie...

Also the olympics aren't really a break when half the roster is going to join them

Its a break from whatever disfunction Babs has going.

Ozzie on his best day wouldn't win the Cup with this roster.

In 1998, the Wings won in spite of Osgood, when they had a tremendous and motivated roster. In 2008 and 2009, he was great, but the team was also great, especially defensively. This team is garbage. I guess that actually excuses Howard somewhat, but I wouldn't use Ozzie as a comparison to him.

The Wings just aren't the team we used to be and the Cup is not a realistic goal for this type of roster.

Its a break from whatever disfunction Babs has going.

Except, he's going to the Olympics too.

Dude are you kidding me? Ozzy always had GREAT players around him. Howard doesn't have that luxury. With this defense Howard has to literally stand on his head. With Stamkos and Filpulla healthy I see Tampa beating anyone in the East. Bishop is a monster and you have get a perfect shot past him.

He had Nick Lidstrom playing in front of him.

For who?

Half the team is going to the Olympics to play a grueling schedule.

Everything in general, the frustration of the fans, the tone of the forums lately, and the players not involved getting a break. Howard likely won't be playing much either. As much as I love the NHL and the Wings I welcome the break to watch a different kind of hockey for a couple of weeks.

If Howard is playing that means USA will have a lot of trouble, Quick and Miller are elite if both are hurt USA can kiss the gold medal goodbye their defense is not that good.

That GWG was a prime example as to why we need another top 2 defender. E has stepped up his game this year, but he is not a top pairing guy. Unless there is a guaranteed stud in the pipeline we need to trade for a top guy.

I guess. I'd like to watch too, but the Olympic schedule isn't very friendly to viewing times on this side of the planet.

Obviously my point was taken well, Howard gets all the slack around here, when in reality he is a better goalie then Ozzie was, abd Ozzie gets treated like a god. Howie could win us a cup, if our defense played even average in front of him.

Actually, I don't think he's better than Ozzie. Ozzie's accomplishments are indeed inflated because of the talent around him, but every goalie who won multiple Cups had lots of talent around him.

Howard is a step down from Ozzie.

See this is what i mean, Ozzie was not very good, like it or bot, Howard is Vetter then Ozzie was.

He's treated like a god now, time has a way of erasing the bad memories and only remembering the good ones. But that was not the case while he was playing.
