I think Mrazek has been slightly better but jesus some of you blow everything out of proportion.

I think it has more to due with watching Howard for the whole of his now 7 years as a starter, knowing this is pretty much what you're going to get from him, and then watching Mrazek get called up last year and 1) slide into the backup role 2) Play well enough to make it a 1A/1B situation 3) Win the starting job for the playoffs and now 4) Playing slightly better than Howard and giving the team a slightly better chance at winning. Add in that this is his first full year in the league and well....(I mean Howard did the same thing to Osgood. First full year in the league was backing up Ozzy, but halfway through the season he had become the number 1. The only difference is Ozzy was clearly at the end of his career, whereas Howard is not.)

 

If you had two pitchers that were both pretty good (like either one would be the ace of the pitching staff if they were on different teams), you're still going to want to start the one who is slightly better (or at least playing slightly better at the time).

 

It doesn't matter how much better

Slightly better is still better, and the one who's better should be given preference. Mrazek is slightly better. That's all there is to it.

That wasn't even a bad pass goal.
Ha.

Only kidding bud,

I think Mrazek is the only one with a BPG this season to be honest!

 

Anyway the way Howie played the first goal was idiotic. Not going to fault him for the Tootoo tip, but it seemed he just totally lost his confidence after that. A professional goaltender (or any athlete for that matter) with long running confidence issues is not a winning mix.

Guys, its OK to say Howard looked like a fish outta water (literally) AND that he played well the rest of the game.

 

Some of you guys act like he's your kid getting bullied at school

These Refs are as bad as the ones that did the Lions/Packers game.

What was wrong with them?

 

Don't even bring up the facemask. because it was clearly a facemask

I hate seeing those empty seats on my crummy bedchamber TV in Stockholm. A direct nail in the eye that reminds me of the indian-caste system.

No you fool not the american indians, the "real" indians, those in "India".

 

Be careful. you are treading dangerously close to to political talk

 

Just kidding I'm not a moderator and I don't care. And I get the point you're making.
