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."

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.

Yes, the murders in Paris were tragic and terrible ...  and should be condemned.  

 

Freedom of speech is to be valued and fought for however, to repeatedly use it to mock a religion's sacred leader is disrespectful and classless.  With freedom comes responsibilities.  

 

Every right implies a responsibility; Every opportunity, an obligation, Every possession, a duty.  

 

If you stop freedom of speech at what offends people then you no longer have freedom of speech. Offense is taken, not given. People don't have a right to not be offended.

 

Mohammad was a pedophile who raped a 9 year old girl

 

The majority of traditional hadith sources state that Aisha was married to Muhammad at the age of six or seven, but she stayed in her parents' home until the age of nine, or ten according to Ibn Hisham. when the marriage was consummated with Muhammad, then 53, in Medina.

But he's oh so sacred that he can't be depicted.

 

You can't force someone else to to follow the rules of a religion they aren't a part of.

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:
