#2592816 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by Z and D for the C on 13 April 2015 - 08:06 AM

It appears that Babs has Mrazek in mind because he started him in the final and crucial game of the season.  Not like Howie needed the rest.  And plus, Mrazek played well, he got a shutout.
 
So, in light of the above, I put all my chips in and say that Babs puts Howie in net for game 1.  

 
 

I think its petr, thats why he started sunday Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk


It could also mean that he wanted to give Howard, his starter, extra rest before the playoffs started or that much less chance of getting injured. Or that he wanted to get one last look at Mrazek to help decide.

It's going to be Howard though, there is no doubt. Mrazek getting a shut on in the last game of the regular season against one of the worst teams really doesn't mean all that much.

this team is spoiled...the only way to change is to miss the playoffs


No, we need a new coach. This team has no leadership right now.

Incidentally, Zetterberg looks absolutely horrible.

The first two periods were golden. What happened?


The Red Wings can't close a game is what happened.

I think it's absolutely hysterical anyone thinks Mrazek should be our #1

This should really put the whole "Howard can't keep us in a game" thing to rest.

I think the Wings have been playing good, but Gus can't stop s***. He's probably going to lose us this game.

I hated the pass by Zidlicky more. Everyone was moving forward and he throws a lazy pass backward that Weiss had nowhere to go with it.


I hated Gustavson deciding to take a nap even more. I also hated when he tried to give whatever Boston player was in the crease a hug instead of trying to stop the puck on the second goal.


I hope this is the last game he starts. Bring up Mrazek if we need to.

FOUR POINTS THE LAST TWO GAMES

Love you Ozzie, but it was nice to watch a game without Mickey in which I didn't get to hear the "very very" or "really..really" on every color call.


Also, hearing multiple tones was nice.

Ol' Ozzie was having a little trouble counting to 4 it seems but really started picking up steam at 5.

Should have given two penalty shots. Two players are free, two penalty shots.




#2538594 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by Z and D for the C on 06 October 2014 - 04:21 PM

I wish we would trade either Helm or Abdelkader or a pick or two. They're both getting pretty redundant. If one of them were let go, I'd like to see:

 

Zetterberg Datsyuk Helm/Abdelkader

Nyquist Weiss Franzen

Tatar Sheahan Jurco

Miller/Glendening/Andersson/Nestrasil

 

 

 

Cleary

 

 

Not putting Weiss in the lineup would be incredibly stupid. I think he played well in the preseason despite only 1 assist. It took Hossa a little bit to mesh with the team, it'll take Weiss even longer and not even having him start the season would be a huge blow to his morale. Thankfully I think Babcock is just sending a message, he'll be in.


 

Just like demoting Weiss after not registering a point while given third line minutes with Kevinf****** Porter on his wing. 

 

How is it that he didn't lead the team in points with opportunities like that?

 

Babcock has a history of giving 2nd line centers s***ty wingers and being confused when they don't produce.

I don't get why Babcock won't try playing Gus with Weiss. He is wasting Weiss's talent. Babs split up Gus and Hank and has Gus playing with Anderson now. I am sorry but Weiss is way better than Andseron and I want to see what that combo looks like. 

 

I think its because he wants to see Anderson as much as possible in the preseason. The preseason isn't about the best teams its about getting the best looks at your players.

Yeah Gus sucks I hope Mrazek is our backup




#2537625 Are the wings underrated?

Posted by Z and D for the C on 29 September 2014 - 05:57 PM

I think this is the best team we've had in a few years, assuming we stay healthy and one year ago we could have won the Cup. I think we're a little underrated right now.




#2537201 Datsyuk 2nd degree separated shoulder injury - out approx 4 weeks

Posted by Z and D for the C on 24 September 2014 - 04:26 PM

 
Flames have half a dozen guys for that stuff.

 

Yeah, if we could only be the flames with their 4th from last place finish in the standings last year.

 

Well that's not being fair you mentioned Vancouver too, they did a lot better than the Flames: tied for 5th worst record.

 

You're right frankgrimes. we should model ourselves after those teams.
