Really? You have to be kidding? What other young D let alone any rookie makes so many mistakes game after game after game? I suppose you wanted to give Schwartz another year coaching the Lions too.
WTF are you talking about? You obviously haven't watched Ericsson. Besides wth does a coach have to do with a young, rookie defensemen? BTW I hate football and could care less about the Lions so I have no idea why you even bothered to bring that scenario up.
Well I definitely agree with that. Sorry if I misunderstood the intent of your original post.
No problem . I guess I have faith in Smitty turning out to be a pretty good d-man down the pike. I like his snarl too. I wish we had a little more of that on this team besides better decision making as a whole with and without the puck.
Jesus, it's as if because you're on the internet it's accepted to act like a ten year old imbecile. It's a constant bitchfest on just about everyone's part, where people wake up each day and decide to express their daily whims(few of which hold any sense). The only thing that is a bigger mess than this team right now is this board. It sounds like a majority of you look at the previous page and see everyone bashing on a given subject so you do it too because it's the cool thing to do.
What an impulsive bunch. Howard's not some second year tweener with no track record. He's 29 years old on his fifth season in the nhl. He's stood on his head and performed among the leagues top goalies year after year. Took the team team to the playoffs, on a major account of his consistent play. Way to not overreact everyone.
But you're right, sit him for the season, and see if he can come back next year.
And you're no better for bitching yourself? Hey this is how we fans act. It doesn't matter what team you cheer for we all act the same. We are passionate about this sport and our team.
