In Topic: Red Wings Road Fans Appreciation

You gotta realize when there is 1 game in Dallas a year, basically every Wings fan in Texas has that one shot to see the Wings without a ton of travel.  I live in Texas and still drive 700 miles round trip for the game.  I'm not a transplant, born and raised Texan, but I do have roots in Michigan.

 

I'd imagine something similar happens in Cali, although there are a few games to choose from.

We've had some good rivalries and playoff series with the Kings, Ducks, and Sharks in the past so Cali fans also know it is going to be a good game every time now.  I gotta say, though, I moved to the east coast for the nine previous years, and coming back to LA I've noticed that Kings fans are insufferable.  Even worse than in the Gretzky era.


In Topic: Is Jimmy Our Playoff Goalie?

Yes, he will be the PO starter, but I believe Mrazek will be in WHEN Jimmy s***s the bed. 

 

That being said, Jimmy has a ton to prove this playoff. $5M+ to lose ALL the big games is asinine. If/When Jimmy s***s himself again, he should be traded in the off season.  NTC or not, he can be convinced to waive it.  Re-sign Monster and he will back up Mrazek. Jimmy is the main reason they lost in Anaheim, and he was the reason they nearly lost in Dallas. s***ty goals given up when his team depends on him.

 

I don't know if I would go as far as all that, but there is some truth in there.  Jimmy seems like one of those goalies who has exploitable weaknesses.  They don't always show themselves, but when he does s*** the bed, it is usually with bunches of similar goals.   Like high rebound control or blocker side in the shootout.  It's like he has occasional lapses in his fundamentals but he isn't able to immediately plug the hole.

I was at the game last night.  The ice was so sloppy, the puck just was just bouncing everywhere and would not settle for the guys.  I would not be surprised if the ice crew did that on purpose to slow it down.  The Kings big defense also make our guys too timid to go to the front of the net, and they seemed hesitant to shoot with no traffic too.  Still an entertaining game though.

On the bright side, his shootout save percentage went up.
