Almost afraid to score because he didn't want to be interview afterward would indicate quite a bit of anxiety.

In my original post I blamed mostly Ericsson and Mrazek and a tiny bit on Smith for being incredibly Passive. How you turn that into me not blaming Ericsson at all and putting it all on Smith is quite incredible... or maybe just massively disingenous?

I guess it shouldn't really be a surprise around here anymore when people dishonestly twist other people's words around

I love the part where he layed out everything you missed, and you had nothing in response other than this. U mad bro?

Really? cuz I've been getting a few "U mad bro" comments my direction lately after posting lengthy arguments. So I guess those comments just people's way of saying they don't have an argument in return.

Yeah, it's crazy nuts to think Mrazek has the potential to challenge Howard for the starting spot in 1-2 years. That's all I'm saying, and I don't think many here would actually disagree with that timeline too much. You might want to try actually reading what I'm saying.

Yeah I'm getting pretty tired of people shoving words in other people's mouths and then arguing against what wasn't said.

Are you mad or something? I don't really know what you're getting at.

Shhh were not allowed to say that. He's the chosen one.

He was clearly asking a legitimate question, not being snarky. And no he didn't really let in any bad ones. So whose really going around baiting people of the two of us?

If anything is stopping this from being in the US its a certain segment of the population that think a sperm is a person

"I kicked around a soccer ball with him," son Murray Howe told the Windsor Star. "He's playing driveway hockey with his grandsons. He's faking out his great-grandson and then shooting the puck through the five hole. You really couldn't even tell he had a stroke at this point."

The results are in amigo, what's left to ponder?!

I hope Mrazek does well cuz you guys all know how much I've been ragging on Howard :boxing: (Whose been playing a hell of a lot better I'll gladly admit). 

 

He is still a rookie though so that has to be kept in mind when judging his performances, but I think he'll be fine as he gets more consistent starts.

Neil deGrasse Tyson rolls his eyes at your assertion, and would love to see the mathematical formula you utilized to arrive at your conclusion.

haha I love Neil. Can't wait for his new talk show.

Alright I'm gonna go ahead and tab that one up in the Bad Pass GoalTM column

I guess I just don't understand liking someone's aggressiveness on a particular play when that is the exact reason they gave up a goal.  

 

Your posts on Howard make a lot more sense to me now though. 


 

I'd have to see it again to be sure, but it still looked overly aggressive positioning given the wide angle the attacking player had.  

 

Overall I think he's played well, but he was maybe a little too excitable at the start of the game. 

AGAIN...I'm not saying I liked it on the play I'm saying I like it in his style in general. Plus he's young and I'm more prone to give him the benefit of the doubt that he'll improv over time (unlike Howard who is almost 31 and in his 6th year as a starter). If he hasn't improved in 5 years then I'll be as hard on him as I am on Howard.

There's aggressive, then there's overplaying it so badly you practically slide out the zamboni gate. 

 

It was a bad goal, no matter when it's scored.  And a professional goalie should be able to account for the clean sheet of ice. It's not exactly an unprecedented event. 

Of course it should be accounted for.

 

And I never said he didn't overplay it, I just liked the aggresiveness of his style.

Ehh I can't criticize Mrazek on his positioning.  He's an aggressive goalie, and the Wings have the personelle and awareness to eat up rebounds or tie up players in front of the net to compensate for that.  If his rebound control was better on that goal, we'd all be praising how confident Mrazek is to challenge the shooter like he does.  Unfortunately he spit the puck back out onto Raymond's stick while all our defenders were covering the weak side.  You're gonna get exploited if you give rebounds up to open shooters.

 

Nice goal Sheahan.

Yeah it certainly looked bad, but I like the agressiveness. Plus it was early in the period; clean sheet of ice means he's gonna slide farther.

 

If it was Howard I'd be upset. :bye:
