right, but if howie was in net, it would be what was howarddoing, terrible call, put gus in. I like Mrazek, and it wasn't his fault, but for some reason people around here hate on howie worse then franzen

Except Mrazek is 21, and isn't making 6 million dollars / year. Howie blows this year, no stat will change that.

 

This. I think the thing people don't get, is alot of us don't hate Howard. In fact, alot of us like him quite a bit. But calling a spade a spade, he's been s*** this season. He has 13 goddamn wins in March. Him getting going is the most important factor in whether we get in or not.

I think it's just because he has been so bad this year. You just expect the puck to go in at critical points during the game when he is in. I am a huge Howard fan, but I have very little confidence in him when it comes down to it. It's also probably because we need him to be the best player on the ice, and he flat out has been average or below average all season long. I just hope he can right the ship next season because he is making way too much to be playing the way he is.

agreed, but Gus has not been any better, that is my point

His win stats say otherwise.

Wait, whose balls are we shining? Do we have to provide our own wax or is that included in the team's budget? Help me out here.

I don't think people hate him, they just hate on him quite a bit, Gustavsson has not played any better by any means, people need to realize that, ya howie could play betterfor sure, but people act like Gustavsson is Lundquist, Gus has been as bad or worse then Howie. the wings just scoree more when he is in net, he also plays against lesser competition compared to howie


His win stats say otherwise.

 

lol his ctual stats don't, the only reason he has won more, as has been pointed out, is because we score more when gus is in net, all other stats are basically the same

He's been slightly better I think, not much though but I don't expect our 2nd goalie who makes one third what Howard does to outshine him completely...

 

The root of the issue is still that Howard has been so god damn awful this season.

agreed, but people act like our backup should be our starter, he shouldn't plus he is so very very injury prone

So im too poor to afford hd, and for some reason Fsd+ is only showing the wings game on the hd channel, the pistons are playing on both Fsd, and fsd+.

I imagine I COULD always drink less beer and get an hd cable box instead.....
Ha
Nevermind.
Thats a terrible idea

I don't think Gustavsson is a long term solution as #1 by any means but I'm beginning to think that the same goes for Howard.

Part of the reason why I spend the money on Gamecenter Live, haha. It's unbearable watching the other teams' broadcasters sometimes.
