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.

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.
