Franzen 11 games without a goal.

And with Franzen, if he's not scoring, he's virtually useless.

LOL. I thought it was that he always got beaten five-hole. What changed?

Some of you will find a way to complain about ANYTHING. Eriksson is one of the game's best pure goal scorers. He'll win on breakaways most of the time, no matter the goalie.


Can you go five posts without getting on Wings fans?



Terrible defensive effort tonight. I bet Howard is pissed.

People on here--including those who watched the goal--will probably still try to use the goal as a stat to pound Howard if the Wings lose.


Riiiight. If there's no conflict at the moment, why don't we just try to set something up? Hmmmm? :rolleyes:

Howie has allowed 124 goals this season.

If you believe some here, he was at fault for 5? Maybe 6?

Personally, its laughable whenever I see "Howie can't be blamed for any of the goals against tonight."

Tell me.. Why does Howie play so well in shootouts but absolutely sucks against breakaways?

It's a mental issue, and he still isn't ready for the bigs. I pray Holland recognizes it and doesn't re-up Howards contract this year.

I'm pretty sure he just sits on the forums waiting to have a go at fellow posters.

I think we are seeing a lot of what we have seen this season... the other team's goalie making great saves to keep his team in the game while ours is not. Every time Howard lets in a goal ppl say "oh but he had no chance" well it is the job of a goalie to make saves to keep his team in it... Leighton is doing that very well right now... impo when ozzie comes back Babs should get him going and if ozzie can get into ggear he is our best bet to win


Howard over-commited on every goal tonight. It's ridiculous. And this is coming from a Howard fan. He's really getting on my nerves lately though. Another 3+ goal game for Howard. It's getting ridiculous.

Ericsson should fight more often. It gets the guys going, shows we arent complete *******, and gets him off the ice for 5 minutes! Cant go wrong :lol:

Video Games are not a good indicator. I have won 40 Stanley Cups in a row just simming because you can fleece other teams because machines can't trade worth a damn.


Wow... I wish i had that much free time...

for getting cold ? hes done it consistently for the year, im not even talking about scoring goals, its his overall play. He won't backcheck

Wrong.

and he's not going to the right areas or battling.

He has battled plenty. Also he is the sniper of the line and his job is to get into the right areas to score. That's how he has gotten his chances, they just haven't gotten in.

He turned over the puck 5 times (when I actually started counting).

You should work for the NHL with that kind of stat taking.

It would be interesting to point out where I thought he was the second coming, I constantly lay on him for his effort.

My point was the hilarity of some Wings fans. If you honestly dog Franzen for his effort then you really must have hated the multi-goal games he had where he did pretty much the same thing.

Watch the first 10 games this season and how he played, then watch the next 35. Don't compare Stamkos to Franzen...

Thank you for completely missing the point behind the comparison. If you honestly think he is a wasted top 6 player you are going to have a rough next few years while Franzen is scoring 30+ goals consistently and getting the points in the playoffs while playing "lazy".

Great job on the last two goals by Howard..... Really thought he was turning the corner, then goal in the last minute of period 1 (not his fault), goal in the last two minutes of period 2 (not his fault, kill Ericsson), a bad rebound for goal number three (his fault) and a TERRIBLE miss on the GWG...

Frustrating night to be certain, they started so well.

When I read quotes like this, I just shake my head. I could see if Howard had a subpar game, but he played very well tonight. Would he like to have the last one back? Of course. At the same time though, there were some stops he made that could have went in but they didn't. This was not a goaltending issue. If anything, it was a capitalization issue.

I didn't get a chance to see the entire game, but I just watched the highlights and I am going to watch the game in its entirety tomorrow. The highlights didn't show me that one goalie outplayed the other. If anything, it was one team unable to capitalize on their chances while the other one did. Dats had about 5 chances to score and couldn't bury the biscuit. Eaves had a couple good chances. The Wings have got to score on those opportunities.

Yet, they didn't. The blame game is easy to cast on one player or another. Seems that everyone except Lidstrom, Hank, or Dats are easy targets. I really should put up a freaking pie chart and start marking down who the loss gets attributed to just as a goof. During the 5 game win streak, it was a team effort. In a loss, its (insert player name here). Howard, Rafalski, Bert, etc.

I don't know, I just tire of the bulls*** in this forum at times. I have read some very good posts from true Wings fans. Then I read s*** like this and its just that....s***. These are Wings fans? I mean seriously? True Wings fans don't throw their players under a bus. Stand behind your team for a freaking change. Win as a team, lose as a team. Its that simple.

Howard has 30 wins to lead all goalies. Yea, he needs to work on his consistency. Maybe he can lose a few more and make himself look about average. After all, consistently winning games is really an issue. <_<


1st in wins
28th in SV%
31st GAA

These stats, for any goalie would lead me to believe: This goalie is starting too many games, this goalie has a GREAT team in front of him, this goalie is easily replaceable due to the team in-front of him. Take the name of the player and I feel you'll come to the exact same conclusion I have.
