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.
