True but those goals are deflating to our young guys, it should not be, but it is.

 

I will agree with you on deflating goals.  As a goalie, I know that is a factor.

 

If we are going to expect Howard to play every game and get lucky like game 1, its unrealistic.

Honestly our biggest problem is not being able to ice 3 solid d pairings. Kindl - Lashoff has been so bad - every time they are out there the Bruins kill our momentum and swing it their way further. Kindl just has the hardest time making the simplest plays - just keeping the puck in at the line he can't even throw it deep along the boards withoutf****** up.

 

What about something drastic, then? Split Kindl and Lashoff up.  I'd say Lashoff is the more reliable of the two, so what about something like:

 

Kronwall-Smith

Dekeyser-Lashoff

Quincey-Kindl

 

And then Babcock just keeps Kindl off the ice as much as possible?

Fair or not, Howard has to stand on his head just to give us a chance in this series. We knew that going in, and nothing's changed. He can't let in softies. Can't happen. That we're not generating offense just hammers the point home. Time for him to earn his big fat contract.

I would agree - but if howard doesn't deflate the building with that softie to start the game we might be playing much better. We were okay before that happened. 


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

Throw a case of beer in there and it's a done deal.  

 

Cheap Beer that is...Franzen's value is barely worth a case of Busch Light at this point

True that.  Its not as fat as some top tier goalies out there though.  If he was making Pekka Rinne money or Luongo money, I would agree.  Heck, Carey price is making more as well.  He is more paid like the middle of the goaltending pack for starting goalies.

All I see is Kindl when he is out there. It seems like he is ALWAYS out there. Just making mistakes everywhere. I agree it would be better to split them up but that 3rd pairing still sucks badly.

At least Dano's 50 year old knees would be skating as best he can, competing and being physical. That's the sad part. And really I'd take Dano or Bert over Andersson.

 

I think from 2011 playoffs until now, Cleary has more points than Franzen.  

 

And that includes this playoffs when Cleary hasn't even been in the lineup.

We're on the same page, then. I think? I'm saying Howard has to save that. He has to be a wall for us, like he was in the first game. He can't be anything less than phenomenal.

Maybe we could find a third option if he stopped s***ting the bed in the first proud of every damn game.

 

If that's really true, then blow up the team and start over with guys with some heart.

 

Or, the other possibility . . . the Wings just aren't ready for primetime.

If St. Louis could trade Halak (who is a very good goalie and from the limited watching of St.Louis, a sold goalie) for Miller, Howard could easily be traded if the right available player came up. I'd at least listen. I don't consider anyone on this roster untouchable any more.

Sergei Fedorov is in the building. He's talking with Wings' brass in the press box.

We're gonna tie this up and win it in OT. Or we're gonna lose. One of those two.

It's so hard to watch Franzen consistently turn over the puck...
