#1983228 Howard injured?

He has some very good games, but he overall he was generally a liability on a team that was inconsistent defensively.


I would argue that he was "generally a liability," and state it:

He had some very good games, but he was an unproven rookie on a team that was inconsistent defensively.

An excellent start to build upon next year.

Price is actually a good goaltender that can be great, just wasn't his year, and the douchebag montreal fans didnt help out at all.

I could count on 1 hand how many bad goals Howard gave up in the Sharks series. Most goals he allowed was 5 on 3 and 5 on 4 goals. Can't blame Howard because his team couldn't stay out of the box.

Exactly, unless people want to get rid of Zetterberg to get an "elite" goalie that could still just fall apart (Luongo, Theodore etc.), I'm completely content with having Howard make the first save, he kept the Wings close and we couldn't bail him out.

Being a goalie in Detroit has to be one of the worst jobs in sports.

Calder trophy nomination season top 5 SV%/GAA, 30 wins, a game 7 road win and a .915 SV% in the playoffs and he gets called a sieve.

He's faced the most shots and has the most saves out any other goalie in the playoffs, he didn't cost the Wings a damn thing.


Cheap as dirt, excellent stats, and still crapped on.

Let's walk through the regular season numbers.

Brodeur: 45 wins, paid 5.2 million. $115,555 per win.
Nabokov: 44 wins, paid 6.0 million. $136,363 per win.
Bryzgalov: 42 wins, paid 4.25 million. $101,190 per win.

Howard: 37 wins, paid 750 thousand. $20,270 per win.

Top ten in wins, a fifth the price. He's earned some serious respect.

I'd prefer that this is his last year. Never was a fan.

Rafalski was one of team USA's best players in the olympics.



I swear to God some people are delirious, or hate players so much they obsess over some little detail. Rafalski was one of our best players, overall, and he was the star of the Olympics.

Is Rafalski going to play? He might be able to help Team Canada again.

#1982787 Brad May expects to retire

Posted by newfy on 10 May 2010 - 01:59 PM

Seemed to make the team play with more balls. Had guys like Meech and Cleary fighting while he was here. Hopefully Abdelkader can fill this role as best as he can next season.

May had an effect on this team, I don't care what anybody says, they played with balls when he was dressed.


#1982584 Is the game TOO fast?

Posted by zettie85 on 10 May 2010 - 05:19 AM

They are supposed to call everything and we as fans have changed as well. We expect everything to be called now so when something gets missed it is noticed more. I would prefer if they didn't call everything unless it was major like the good old days. They catch somethings nowadays and miss things and in the series vs. the Sharks it really showed and really gave an advantage to one team. If they eliminated calling everything we would lose so much of the boderline bulls*** that is ruining the game today.

Canada vs. USA Gold medal game. Best reffed game I saw all year.
