#2493450 UFA/RFA Re-Signing, What Does Everyone Get?

Posted by DickieDunn on 09 March 2014 - 11:38 AM

Hard to score when you're playing with Glendening and Abdelkader

Without a doubt it's Gus.

 

Is it me, or does Jimmy look fat?




#2493940 Howard = Average

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 09 March 2014 - 06:41 PM

Howard had the 12th highest cap hit. Halak, Crawford, Hiller, and Varlemov ate free agents this summer and may pass him.

Literally all of them have tremendous consistency issues. Halak could never hold down a starting job, he is always in some kind of time share. Crawford was so up and down that he was questioned heavily as a starting goaltender after his first great half season. Hiller had two awful seasons and lost his starting job to Fasth last year just to pick it back up again this season. 

 

This is the reality of goaltending. Miller has slumped for a couple months on end. Quick has done the same. Luongo had an terrible season and a half which sparked the controversy in Vancouver a couple years ago. Lundqvist had an brutal start to this season. 

 

No goalie has ever been great at all times, all season, every season. Every goalie listed above has had struggles ranging from weeks, to months, to extending beyond one season. It happens. Roy and Brodeur, the legends of the position, have had off months and a few bad seasons. 

 

This is a fact that must be accepted if you are a fan of hockey. It's not an excuse to protect Howard, but if we had Hiller, Halak, Varlamov, Crawford, any goalie mid to high range there will always be consistency issues and we'd have a thread just like this one about them also. Period. No goalie is 100% elite at all times, all season every season.




#2493912 3/9 GDT: Red Wings at Rangers

Horrible all around. Team looked like it wasn't even trying and two of those goals Howard let in I think he should've saved. So I'm not blaming this one on any one person, it's the teams fault today.

I missed the third due to my washer leaking water all over the floor. Seems like I didn't miss much other than a bad loss.


Franzen took the afternoon off, and Howard couldn't make a save with Quincey in front of him. Everyone else on the team had the best 3rd of their careers. Typical stuff.

Don't worry. I'm sure the washer was more entertaining.

#2493251 If Kronwall isn't a #1

Probably in the minority but I think Chara is the most overrated player in the league.  He's big and physical, but I've never been impressed with his defensive ability.

Gosh if we had ONE more solid dman this team is cup worthy. Our depth at offense is flat out scary. We can beat anyone in the east 100% healthy.

#2491180 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by brooklynsour on 05 March 2014 - 06:27 PM


Am I missing something or did we in fact pay more for David Legwand (a rental) than the Habs paid for Thomas Vanek?


 
They did. Vanek is going to command a hell of a lot more money though after this season. I dont think the Wings wanted any part of that.


Okay but I rather pay vanek 5-7 mill than pay leg wand 3.5-4.5 mill...

#2491021 Datsyuk shut down for 3 weeks

Posted by Dave on 05 March 2014 - 05:12 PM

yay my first wings game i am going to on sunday and i dont get to watch Z or datsyuk. 

 

I went to the Caps game in Feb and was sad that Dats wasn't playing. Then Nyquist hat trick'd, so I was happy.

 

Maybe Franzen will roid rage and score 5 goals.
