#2512917 Howard = Average

Posted by cnot19 on 21 April 2014 - 03:46 PM

I do not want Howard stick handling anytime soon, he simply isn't good enough at it. What I rally would like to see him work on is knocking down dump ins behind the net and settling dump ins behind the net for the d men. He doesn't have to make any passes or anything like that simply leave it in the trapezoid after stopping the dump in, makes it much easier on defenseman specially against hard forechecking teams, trust me.

I wish either player were on the wings both have a nasty streak which is something I love

Howard was OK and made some good saves, but it just seems like every goal he allows is from him flailing all over the place.

That's a huge flaw in his game. There are a few things he does very badly yet for some reason (ego idk ) he does not seem to work on

Lovely to see howard completely outplayed by a no name rookie.

Mcelhinny is hardly a no name rookie rather a Joey Macdonald type but your point stands

My real and only problem with Howard is that he does not understand his major deficiencies an refuses to work on them (poke checking and stick handling )

Putting wins aside monsters stats are pretty much identical to howies he has not been better, and holy is not a below average minor league goalie...

I never meant to say he was a below average minor league goalie maybe I was too dramatic what I was trying to say is there are parts of his game that are well below average

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.
