#2514379 THN: Top 10 free agent flops - 2013/4 edition

Posted by GMRwings1983 on Yesterday, 01:36 PM

I just can't believe that Weiss will be injured forever. It's been so long he's got to recover. I'm not willing to give up on him yet. His cap hit hasn't hurt us yet, since we had so many injuries this year, and expect good things from him next year. I can't wait for a healthy roster next year.

I've been waiting for 5 years, bud.

Man, people blaming Howard is unbelievable. It makes me wonder if you guys are real hockey fans. When you score ZERO goals do you expect to win? So Howard is supposed to make EVERY stop until the Red Wings score? LoL. I thought Howard finished strong. Wings didn't have ANY puck luck today and NOTHING went their way. The post by Helm was huge, if that goes in, it's a different game. Wings looked like s*** yes, but it's still only 2-1. Do I think the Wings will win? No, but it's far from over. They have to find a way to score.

 

The  people blaming Howard are also blaming everyone else.  If you go back through this thread (I don't recommend it) you'll see that.

I can agree with that logic, although Osgood after a cup under his belt continued to receive the same blame and grief for the rest of his career regardless of what he was doing.

 

I'm just calling it as I see it, I can live with allowing 2 goals a game as long as we can match or put up more. Averaging less than a goal scored per game will doom us even if howard allows one goal per game in the next three games, chances are they will still win a game or two 1-0 and take the series.

 

Must find a way to score goals.

 

Wings won the Cup in spite of Osgood in 1998, not because of him.  Watch the recaps of those entire 1998 playoffs, and you'll see him give up so many mindblowingly bad goals.  Quick was the exact opposite in 2012 (of course the goalie position changed since 1998).  Eventually, Ozzie was moved after some subpar performances against Colorado in the playoffs, and that 2001 disaster against LA.  If Quick sucks several seasons in a row in the postseason, he may get the same treatment.

I didn't post that with the intention of arguing that Howard is better than Quick, because I won't. It is more a point that yes, a goaltender can be responsible for losing games in the playoffs. Quick has solely been responsible for them being down 2-0 and having the series in a losing position right now. There is no denying that, he has been terrible.

 

Howard has been responsible for dropping one game. Holding him responsible for this game is illogical. His numbers have been excellent, he stole us a game, yet he's still getting the most heat. That's my point. Even the most elite can be awful at times and cause you to lose games. Howard has been solid, not stellar, but not bad either. 

 

The blame needs to be pointed at the offense and lack of effort and energy in the first half of tonight's game. 

 

Fans are less likely to blame a goalie who's a few seasons removed from taking the franchise where it's never been before.

 

Howard is playing in Hockeytown and can't get past the 2nd round.  Of course our fans are going to react more harshly than LA fans towards Quick.  A player has to prove himself before he can get some kind of immunity from a fanbase.

I know, if only we had a clutch goaltender like Quick shutting down the opposition with insanely strong efforts every night during the playoffs.

 

Howard - 2.02 GAA .931 SV%

Quick - 7.20 GAA .824 SV%

 

Quick won the Conn Smythe a few years ago in one of the best goaltending performances ever.

 

Howard can't get past the 2nd round.

If I attended this game, I 100% would do everything in my power to get a refund. That was a joke. 

 

Sergei Fedorov was seen leaving the arena in disgust and shaking his head at Holland.

A team just can't win a series if they can't score on the powerplay.

 

Especially when they can't score even strength either.  Not a good combo.

Lightening done..

 

Boston will want to finish the series quickly in order not to give Montreal more rest.

How does Abby miss that...

 

How does a team make the playoffs with a scrub like that playing on the top line for more than half the season?

You guys are bitching about Franzen, but he's tied for the team lead in points in these playoffs.

That was a great chance to get back in the game.  

 

We've all been asking for more shots, but forgot this team can't shoot.

Franzen will score here, and add two more before the period is over.   ;)

Legwand can generate offense and he's playing withf****** Glendening and Miller, what a joke.

 

Yeah, he must have parked in Holland's spot.

Babs is a hard headed idiot, this game is over if the lines don't change. Bottom line.

 

Yeah, I've never seen a coach so obsessed with lines that don't work.  He seems to do it every year.

There is a man who can help us.  A man without whom we haven't won a  playoff series since 2004.
