I don't know why people are complaining. This is a good thing. The more Gus is injured the more experience mrazek gets before he becomes the full time backup next season

Re-signing Gustavsson would be a wise move I think. There will be injuries, so Mrzek will probably play some in the NHL anyway.

The hype for Mrazek is funny the guy hasn't done anything worthwhile at the NHL level and yet people are already making him the next starter. Reminds a lot on a certain guy named Jacob Markström.

In 11 games in the nhl, he has a 1.8 gaa and a .926 sv%

And obviously he has been great in the ahl also

There are a lot of guys who have done well over such a small period of time but I think you really need to see a bigger picture like 30 games for two seasons to really get a better evaluation

So he's achieved as much as you'd hope he could, in the opportunities he's been given. What more do you want from him?

I think for me, the thing about Mrazek that has me so high on him, is that he's absolutely excelled at every level. He barged his way into the GR and seized the number 1 job there and has been awesome for 2 seasons. He was terrific in the World Juniors (Goalie of the tournament I believe), and every time he's got the call to the Wings, he's played great too. Everytime you hear anyone talk about him, they also mention how determined, competitive he is and how he wants to be the best guy on the ice every night.

 

That kind of attitude combined with the skill he has shown so far, as we all know, separates the good from the great. Obviously he may never put it all together on a consistent basis, or he may win multiple Vezinas. We're going to find out though for sure.

I don't want more from him, I'm just keeping my expectations realistic and like others said at some point we are going to see whats the deal with him. But I don't expect him to come in and keep up this ridiculous 1,8 GAA.

 

Same with some other young players I fully expect some of them to have a tougher year 2 it's part of the development so no worries here.

St. James just tweeted "Per #RedWings GM Ken Holland, "it appears we've agreed to a one-year deal" with G Jonas Gustavsson. Official announcement coming soon."

Wings and backup goalie Jonas Gustavsson agree on 1-year deal, Ken Holland confirms. No decrease in salary, so $1.5 million or higher.

Ugh.

 

Waste of about $750k in cap space in my opinion...

 

There are going to be much better (and much less injured) backup goalies available on July 1st that would have likely cost much less than Gustavsson's $1.5M cap hit...

 

I don't get the draw to this guy... In his two years since joining the Red Wings, he's had ONE good stretch of play, which was from October to December this past season. Every other time, he's either injured or play mediocre to not so good.

 

I would've rather had Greiss or Montoya, who would've been cheap and durable for one year. Both also had way better numbers this past season.

Good signing. Love that it's only a one year deal. One more year in the minor for Mrazek to get over-ripe and ready to back up Howie after next season.

This is perfect IMO. When his inevitable injuries occur Mrazek will get the call and get some more nhl experience, but will still get a lot more time playing with the Griffins. Win win. I would've been a little bummed if it was anything more than 1 year but I think this is ideal.

My guess is the he gets hurt sometime around December and Mrazek steals his spot for good. Not a bad insurance policy, but like others have said; he didn't look very good going down the stretch...
