#2570822 2/14 GDT : Jets 5 at Red Wings 4 (SO)

Oh. Excuses. I can play that game.
 
Howard's been a starter for 5 seasons and Mrazek is a rookie, but that's easy to ignore when you have an agenda. Petr just needs to start more to get used to playing in the NHL.


Not really an excuse. Did you not expect someone that hasn't played in over a month to not show some rust? Mrazek got plenty of starts and played well in spurts -- I never denied that. He also showed he has plenty to work on still as a goalie and Howard being healthy gives the Red Wings the best chance to win going forward.

Mrazek's numbers aren't that great and the team did score a lot of goals in front of him. I don't know why that's such a travesty to point out. If Jimmy continues to give up four goals per game, then maybe you have more of a case. But he hasn't all season.

Just posting my thoughts. Or am I not allowed to do that?
 
And it would have needed to be true tonight for a win, even though it was Howard they would have had to bail out and not Mrazek.


First game in a month. Easy to ignore I guess when you have an agenda. Howard has been exceptional all season and will be again. He just needs to play more to find his rhythm.

That's what happens when your GM makes a blockbuster trade.


You go 1-1 and win in a shootout?

The shooters are woefully bad at this shootout thing. I mean, just pathetic for all the skill they have.

No trip, of course.

I hope Chicago has to play Winnipeg in the first round.

Exhibit A of why Smith should be on the PP. His offensive instincts are better than anyone else's on defense. Not the first time Smith has created offense by jumping into the play tonight.

17 games as a ref and this dude sucks as much as his co-workers already.

First in the East on February 7th! This team, man.

Doan is such a clown. Enjoy spending your final years losing in front of 28 people.

This Bolduc character is quite the tool.


#2567930 1/31 GDT : Islanders 1 vs. Red Wings 4

You mean I decided that he can't play the puck over the course of 5 seasons?? Is that what you're talking about? 2 games =/= 5 seasons. 

 

And no, he wasn't giving up 4 goals every game before that.

 

The same reactionary comments you are bemoaning about Mrazek are constantly perpetuated about Howard when he is healthy. I would be more likely to accept that the only thing you have against Howard is his puck-handling if your history suggested otherwise, but I think it goes well beyond that specific area. You can't be upset when people (rightfully) point out Mrazek was struggling and then do the same to Howard. 

 

Mrazek was giving up four goals prior to the Islanders game. He got pulled allowing three on seven shots to Buffalo and then gave up four in his next two starts against Minnesota and Florida.

I could have sworn it was decided thursday night that Mrazek was going to consitently give up 4 goals every game

 

You decided two games into the season Howard was awful with that infamous thread.

 

Besides, Mrazek was giving up four goals every game prior to the Islanders. Nobody was writing him off for life; just merely stating that he was struggling in those starts. He rebounded well yesterday and the Red Wings did a much better job of suppressing scoring chances.

XO and Smith are getting manhandled tonight. Swap Smith and E to balance out the pairings.

This might be the most poorly officiated Wings game of the season overall.

5-1 in penalties and the standard has been ridiculously inconsistent.


#2566180 Larkin or Mantha?

Posted by GoWings1905 on 27 January 2015 - 04:21 PM

I think a better question is Tatar or Nyquist. Mantha and Larkin fill different needs, Tatar and Nyquist are redundant.

 

Redundant meaning one is expendable in a trade? Because I entirely disagree with that. 




#2565286 Jimmy Howard.......All-Star!

Posted by GoWings1905 on 20 January 2015 - 10:27 PM

Anyone miss Jimmy?


Yes, but I did all along. He's the best goalie the Red Wings have by far. Nothing against Mrazek, as he will be great someday, but this is Jimmy's team right now.
