"I've been sayin' it. I've been sayin' it for ten damn years. Ain't I been sayin' it, Miguel? Yeah, I've been sayin' it." - Russel Case (Independence Day)


"Mrazek, uh, finds a way" - Ian Malcom/Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park)



I hate to say it but damnit, I'm going to. Good Bye Howard Apologists!!!!!  All last year I kept saying how they should start getting Mrazek in a position to take over the starting job soon, especially with the way Howard was struggling. And all last year I got s*** on by almost everybody.


"He doesn't have any experience!"

"You just like him cuz he's new and shiny. Once he starts struggling you'll be calling for McCullom!"

"Blah Blah Howard Blah Blah...."


NO. I liked him because he was clearly better than Howard. Better agility and quickness, better stick handling, better positioning, better mental tougness, ect... 


I'm just waiting to see how people react when Mrazek has a bad stretch.


Well, I'll probably give him a pass. Everybody has a bad night or two. But Mrazek has shown that he has a short memory when it comes to that and can move on quickly. He's still young, still improving. And frankly he's just better. When you're better you have a longer leash. (Think Brett Favre. Threw a ton of interceptions. But he was an elite quarterback so you're more willing to overlook that in a way you wouldn't if it was an average quarterback. And the style of play that caused him to throw so many interceptions is what caused him to be one of the best in the game).


Jimmy is still a good goalie. Probably the best backup goalie in the league. I still hope he gets out of this funk he's been in and will cheer for for him when he does play. But Mrazek seems to have taken the starting job for good. Having a goalie tandem of Mrazek/Howard is a 'good problem' to have. Whichever way Blashill splits the starts from here on out is fine with me.

Petr should probably play in San Jose but get Jimmy some action too. A motivated Jimmah is a scary Jimmy

Yeah I don't want Jim to sit too long, especially after his last two outings.

Solid game by Petr.


Is the goalie situation settled then? Al least for now?

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.

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
