#2494732 Howard = Average

Posted by cnot19 on 12 March 2014 - 01:48 AM

As someone who observes and examines alot of goalies and plays goalie, Howard's puck handling is very below average his glove hand is above average, blocker side is well well below average, rebound control at times it's awesome at times it's terrible, his poke check is non existent at this point it really may be below a minor league goalie, again his angles are great at times but also incredibly out of place at times, and finally I feel like his biggest weakness is the second shot he does not move fluidly side to side
I do not mean to put monsters abilities or stats over his but simply put he brings more wins looking at the games monsters rebounds are pushed or kicked pretty far away or covered which allows his unorthadox slide to get in position

During the devils and wings game the devils Chico was wondering why monster hasn't gotten more starts and that he should have more I have to agree goals for goals against save percentage are simply statistics which have do not show up in the standings his numera are what they are but his record is the more important result

Can't wait for the hollandites to back this move. I can believe we made this offer for legwand but couldn't for vanek or Kessler and maybe make the pick better to get te deal done

Throughly enjoyed the game tonight, great game by Quick, as a part time goalie, I really appreciate his style. Really dislike the Russians so yesterday was especially good for me. If I had to pick a USA olympian to be on the wings it would come down to Kesler or Backes, prob lean towards Kesler. Anyway enjoying the Austrian Norway game especially because its going my way bettingwise.

Miller in net today gives Quick the day off, I can see some lethargy from USA to start but I think they steamroll Kopitar and co.

#2478992 Hypothetical: What Coach Would You Replace Babcock With?

Posted by cnot19 on 30 January 2014 - 04:09 PM

Who:  Dave Tippett
Why:  He's the best coach in hockey.

Agreed I really like tippet would be different to see him have a team with offensive talent, no doubt I think he'd still succeed

Looking forward to seeing the team after the Olympic Break. Could be a totally different second half for this team, will be very interesting.

#2473119 Stadium Series: Los Angeles

Posted by cnot19 on 15 January 2014 - 12:55 PM

I think there may be one too many games but IMO the stadium series is definitely a good idea in theory, creates more exposure for the league but also allows for teams that would otherwise never get a winter classic a chance to be in the spotlight

#2471943 Cleary should be suspended for elbow to head

Posted by cnot19 on 10 January 2014 - 05:14 PM

If there is no suspension to Cleary, I hope the Hannan suspension is rescinded by the league.

#2465321 Wings muscle?

Posted by cnot19 on 16 December 2013 - 06:02 PM

The wings are one of the few teams without any players who are "mean". Hockey is a sport where hatred and animosity grow especially in the playoffs however there is no one on the wings who is truly a mean player. Tootoo is guys like lucic clarkson Matt Martin pronger etc are. They engage after the whistle they hit to hurt they cross check you in front etc. I am a believe in an enforcer but at the very least I think the wings need more guys who can be nasty

Would like to see this next year

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Franzen
Nyquist - Helm - Tatar
Abdelkader - Andersson - Bertuzzi
Miller - Glendening - Tootoo

Kronwall - Ericsson
Smith - Dekeyser
Kindl - Lashoff


If Alfredsson wants to come back I'd obviously be fine with that, a big FA addition wouldn't hurt either. Still a good team though.


I would have to disagree about this being a good team, imo a good team would not have Andersson on thier third line, nor Helm on their second
