So...

We can win matinee games, just as long as they're on FSD?

What a win! And hopefully they can pull the sweep tomorrow. I'll like to see Franzen do something. Man, guy can score 10 goals in two games and not score again for 20.

Doesn't matter. People posting on the internet has no effect on whether Howard is Below, Above, or Equal to being an average goalie.

It's his on ice play that determines that.

 

And if people are saying he sucks after one bad goal they too are ignoring half the information to make their remarks.

 

But you made a sarcastic remark about him being average. (Which, again, he is when you look at ALL the information and not just the info that supports what you want)

 

Top 10 among active goalies (career) in both SV% and GAA. 

 

I thought he's played well this past week at least, I didn't notice how many solid saves he had until FSD showed the clip early in the 3rd.

He was fantastic today. That isn't blind praise. Also, you do realize there are plenty of people here on the opposite end of the spectrum regarding Howard, right?

It is blind praise when there are constant excuses when things are bad for him, and when he's playing well he's the greatest goalie and somehow ALL the bad things he does are ignored.

 

I'm sure there are, but to get to that point you have to think "OK, if he wasn't playing for the Wings, would I think he's an above average goalie? Would I want him on my team?"  Then you take a critical look at his game.

 

It seems most "Howard Supporters" are just that. Supporters. "I'm going to support Howard no matter what cuz he's on the Wings and I'm a fan of the Wings so I can't think bad thoughts about any aspect of his game or I won't be a true fan and anybody who doesn't support him 100% no matter shouldn't voice their concerns and opinions Y cant U jsut support him!!"

 

If you're referencing people saying "he sucks" right after goal without any other thoughts or analysis going into that, then yeah they are just as guilty as people saying "Average Save There, Hey Guys!!" after he makes one nice save and not putting any other thoughts or analysis into it.

 

It's the same thing.  Selecting only the instances that confirm your theory and ignoring all the instances that don't isn't going to get you to an informed, rational position, whatever that position is.

 

If I selected only his greatest moments he would seem like a great, above average NHL goalie.

If I selected only his weakest moments he would seem like a s***ty, below average NHL goalie.

If I look at ALL his work, then and only then could you make a determination on how well he actually plays. That's all I'm advocating. I don't care where you fall once you've done that.

He did play well this past week and I don't think that first goal was as bad as some. (See, I'll give him credit when he deserves it!!)

 

Among active goalies who have played more than 10 games, Howard is:

40th in GAA &

37th in SV%

 

His numbers from previous seasons don't guarantee he'll continue to be a top 10. His numbers from this season don't guarantee he'll continue to be a mid 40 goalie.

 

But you can't take only one piece of info, then ignore the rest and try to assert something based on that. I'll just quote myself haha

What about 20+ games? (ie. among Starters) Not that it would say he's better or anything, it would probably make him look worse. 

 

You are not a Howard hater, you will at least entertain the idea that he played well. I don't think either goal could be considered "bad" as much as he just got beat. Bad timing for sure, but the Wings are battling and competing well so the goals allowed is behind us. 

 

At least we can agree that this season, Howard has not been at the top of his game. He is therefore average (statistically) this season. I just don't enjoy reading the others who think we need to trade in Howard based on a single poor season.

with all the kids getting better with each game it'll be interesting who sits when the injured guys start coming back.

Do we have a limit on the cap still or is that now lifted. I can only presume that Jurco, Sheahan, Pulkkinen,Ferraro

and Emmerton will go back to GR's and maybe Glendening stays as Babs likes him. To me Sheahan should stay 

up because him with Gus and Tats can be a dominate 3rd line for us. 

Hopefully they can keep going and get us in the post season when most of our injured guys should be back.

At the end of the day the kids have done great, but when you have the guys we have out it could be any other

teams top 2 forward lines.


"What are you guys doing?" Reggie Dunlop
"Putting on the foil coach" Jeff Hanson
"Yeah, every game, you want some coach?" Steve Hanson
"Er, no. No thanks guys." Reggie Dunlop
"Make sure they don't leave the bench!" Reggie Dunlop.

Outside of Joakim Andersson, no one else is really close to coming back.  I don't see Datsyuk coming back this season, or Zetterberg either.
