That's just not true. Mrazek ranks 44/46 in Save% and 44/46 in GAA, worse then every one of Colorado's goaltenders and he played in 49 games more then Howard (25) and Coreau (14) combined. Our goaltending has been awful this year.

My point being on this crappy Wings team - our goalies played as well as they could considering the team in front of them...By no means am I comparing our guys to what other teams have between the pipes.

The Wings Dmen, and forwards have been a huge disappointment, and I for one won't hang this on our netminders.

In defence of our goaltending, they have been left out to dry more times this year than they have in the previous 3 years combined. The amount of odd man rushes they've faced has been obscene this season, no they haven't been as good as they can be but the situations they've been put in is down to our below average D this year.

I couldn't agree more.

The whole season has been disappointing but it's okay to say the organization expects a lot more from Mrazek. Special teams and goaltending is the difference in how we made the playoffs last year compared to being one of the worst teams in the league this year

Not even the King or Price could overcome that defense. Green is more focused on points than defending, Danny has an off year and Kronwall needs to be a 3 pairing guy because his needs aren't​ going to get better.

Z had an awesome year and yet it wasn't enough to even get them close to being competitive, this team is so flawed and lacks star potential at every position.

Since this is the last regular season game i expect to read about a presser from Chris soon.

Well definitely not the King, he is no longer the goalie you are remembering. Price would have made a huge difference though, I really think you underestimate the parity in the NHL Frank, Put an elite goaltender on this team, a 1A d-man, and a top center and we look like a completely different team. Just look at the Leafs last year to this year, or the Oilers adding McDavid, before McDavid/AM both of those teams were a joke.

I get what you are trying to say, but if that was true Jimmy would have stats just as bad as Mrazek which he does not as he has a GAA of 2.15 to Mrazek's 3.04 and a Save % of 92.6 to Mrazek's 90.1. If Jimmy doesn't get hurt and keeps up those numbers, we are likely a playoff team (not contenders, but the 8th seed). 

I will agree though, our D is more of a problem then Mrazek. Last night in OT is a perfect example.
