I wish I could remember the idiots on here that wanted to get rid of Tatar. Do you guys just not like winning?

Ehh I can't criticize Mrazek on his positioning.  He's an aggressive goalie, and the Wings have the personelle and awareness to eat up rebounds or tie up players in front of the net to compensate for that.  If his rebound control was better on that goal, we'd all be praising how confident Mrazek is to challenge the shooter like he does.  Unfortunately he spit the puck back out onto Raymond's stick while all our defenders were covering the weak side.  You're gonna get exploited if you give rebounds up to open shooters.


If we could merge JH's positioning and Mrazek's athleticism we'd have the best Goalie in the world.

well that's the most I've noticed Franzen in a long time


I didn't think he still played for us. I heard the locker room received a new coffee machine and assumed he was traded.

Is Franzen playing?


I thought we traded him....For a bag of chips.

still a defense top 4 with Ericsson, Kronwall, Yandle? Dekeseyer is not good. Should have made a move 3 years ago. Building a team around Kronwall and Ericsson can take you nowhere fast


"Dekeseyer is not good"

Really? He might be our best defensemen this year. I'm not with you on this statement at all.

even as recently as earlier this year.


Remember when we all heard he radically changed his workout regiment and would be much faster?
Maybe him being sick for three weeks is legit though. We'll see, I guess.

That's impossible to know.  I get that you're not big on Jimmy right now, but it's not like he never comes up with huge saves. 


If you're going to make a judgement on something I didn't say Im not interested in having a discussion about it. I've accepted Jimmy for who he is which means I don't consistently bash him like the folks on here you confused me with. My comments about JH have been VERY consistent. He's not elite (IMO) but he's better than some give him credit for. Has great position but is not near as athletic as the top goalies. I don't think most people would say that JH is as athletic or "quick" as the top guys. Which to me, makes him above average. Nothing more, nothing less.

Said it a million times....Jimmy is just not as quick as the best goalies. Gives up more rebounds than most as well.

Jimmy is not athletic at all and that's what you need to stop guys with skill. That's why the "Jimmy is average" folks keep getting upset. He just can't stop those guys at his best but it has nothing to do with his work ethic. His Celing is just not that high. No need to get upset about it.

However, the "Jimmy is an elite goalie" folks need to have their head checked. He's not elite.

In all fairness we owned Toronto last game everywhere but the scoresheet, Reimer was a wall. Give credit where it's due. 
 
The game against Florida could have went either way, has nothing to do with being a bad team only bad luck.
 
Tonight yeah, we don't look that great but we need a regulation loss every now and then to learn what we're doing wrong.


Not sure why people are getting angry over factual information. When did I ever say we were a bad team? I'll make this easy. Here are the FACTS: We have only two points out of possible 6 (Including tonight) from our past three games. If you look into Jan and Feb we only have 5 or 6 home games combined. We do a lot of traveling and our schedule gets tougher. Another fact: we've been healthy until recently. Odds are that will change (Abby DK an Weiss out now) as we get deeper in the season. We will be lucky to go .500 on the road so I'm betting we fall off pace and start to slide from our top spot. That's an assessment based on facts.
