#2591876 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by roboturner on 09 April 2015 - 11:53 PM

Babs says he is going to have a beer and decide who starts the last game...

 

Is there any chance he goes with Mrazek in the playoffs?

 

The two main differences between Petr and Jimmy right now seem to be puck-handling (in favor of petr) and experience (in favor of jimmy).

 

It was nice to see Jimmy playing so well the other night and in the shootout. He seemed to be getting his confidence back, and just in time. I thought he would have been the obvious choice. But now, who knows.

 

If the knock against Petr is a lack of experience, well, there is only one way to change that. And I think his puck-handling would be a huge asset in the playoffs.

I just prefer to discuss hockey and the red Wings in a more constructive light with members who know what they are talking about. This forum, sadly, has jumped the shark.

Well I'm honored to be basking in your omnipotent knowledge of the game :sarcasm:

 

What is it with you guys?

 

I agree that playing the game can help people learn and understand it and it probably is the best way to do it. But it's not unimaginable that somebody could learn and understand it from watching it. In fact, professional athletes do this as well all the time. It's called film study!

 

You don't have to have played past Juniors to know bad positioning or poor outlet passes or tipped goals ect...Get over yourselves.

REALLY? How has this turned into a bashing Howard thing?! That guy has played his a** off for us this game and he gives up a bad goal on a 5 on 3 and all of a sudden this is all his fault? Grow the eff up. You're blind if you think he's the reason we're tied. God. The Howard hate around here has just gotten to be ridiculous. How about our PP eh?

You were saying???

*cost us a point

I guess your just a glass half empty kinda guy...

 

We don't get any points in that game with Petr's performance. (and yes there were a number of games where Howard stole a point for us.)

The same people who are praising Mrazek would have been ripping on Howard for letting in the tying goal, complaining that he got his glove on it, should've stopped it.  It isn't that Mrazek lost in the shootout, it's that he looked totally clueless out there when the Wings actually put 2 on the board.  We don't know how Howard would have played tonight. 

Your right, we don't know how he would have played. But I don't think him pitching a shutout is a good starting place for a guess.

At least we'll have a chance if it goes to a shootout

Ok, I will...You cherry pick things that just support your argument, like ignoring the fact that I said Petr sucked today and tongue in cheek said, but technically Jimmy gave up the GWG.  You focused only on the GWG part, that is you cherry picking...

 

Again, giving up 4 goals, and three pretty bad ones, is bad, but technically, for stats, Jimmy gave up the GWG and got the loss...

 

Lets talk about Franzen's GWG...remember the argument "Franzen floats but he leads the team in GWG's?" Remember that? Now lets tie these two together:  GWG is the goal your team wins by, but most of Franzen's GWG's came when he scored the 5th or 6th goal in a 6-1 lead, then as the team derailed and battled back to lose by a 6-5 score, technically for stats the 6th goal was a GWG, but in real life it wasn't a goal that was scored that won the game, like it was 5-5 and he scored to win the game...BUT he still got credit for the GWG, right? My argument was always, the former, it really wasn't a GWG.

 

So tonight, Petr gave up 4 goals and Jimmy only one, sure Petr should have in reality gotten the loss because he played worse than Jimmy, but because Jimmy gave up the one goal that the team lost by, Jimmy was given the loss.  It's not like it was tied 4-4 and Jimmy gave up the goal, so really it wasn't a GWG that he gave up at the time, but technically speaking he did give up the GWG.

 

You cannot have it both ways.  You either talk about the importance of the goal, or you go by stats.  In Franzen's case, even though I was right in that most of his GWG weren't of that importance at the time they were scored, by definition of a GWG though, I was wrong.  Same goes for tonight, even though when Jimmy gave up the 5th goal, it was not a GWG at the time it was scored, but by definition of the stat, he did end up giving up the GWG. and getting the loss, even though the loss is more on Petr's shoulders than Jimmy's...

 

That was the only comaparison between the two.

 

$100 please...


 

Must we hold your hand in everything?  Petr is better than Jimmy IMO, but I can admit he needs more experience to be the legit #1, Jimmy is Jimmy and by default will be the #1 until Petr takes it from him fully.  Nowhere did I say Jimmy SHOULD be our #1, if you recall I was calling for him to be traded over the summer.  Petr will take the job from Jimmy, its just lack of experience in the NHL that is keeping that from happening. 

 

Right now though, if you really want to talk about who should be #1, neither seem to be wanting it. But Petr, being a rookie, at least as that as an excuse, Jimmy has noithing to excuse his s***ty play...

 

$200....

Don't bother man, he doesn't understand the concept of using similes and analogies to make a point about what was being discussed. Then, to avoid having to admit being wrong, he'll just claim you're not addressing the topic because of said use of similes and analogies.

I expected some of the LGWs members who are usually polluting these GDTs during a loss to swing by here and say some nice things about the Wings. They must be busy. It is Saturday afternoon after all. 

HI!

 

Now the the hockey game is over, I just wanted to interrupt my travel plans, pull my car over so I could stop by letsgowings and say that it looks like Howie finally pulled his head out of his ass and game the team a shutout! :)
