As everyone is not witnessing what I have been saying, Jimmy is WELL above average, and he is back to true form, after getting a much needed rest, he is still playing great after playing great yesterday. all you jimmy haters can suck it

Two of the goal's on Howard weren't really his fault. That last one I didn't get a good enough look at in the replay. Pretty sure it deflected. If the Wings hadn't f***ed up and bounced on in on themselves it wouldn't have gone to OT anyways.
1st goal Not much Howard can do with a screen in front of him and the scoring player on his off wing below the face off circle
2nd goal Deflected off a Wings player. Looked like he didn't have good position anyway.
3rd goal Kronwall f***ed up bad with a turnover behind the net. Jimmy should of had it as it trickled in on him, he just didn't squeeze hard enough.
4th goal Another turnover behind the net but this time on Lidstrom. Not much Jimmy can do on that.
Besides that 3rd goal you can't really blame Howard.
Pretty slick move on Nyquist part for his goal. He completely deked the guy defending him in the corner, Datsyukian like.
The reaction to E's contract was very similar to the reaction of Datsyuk's, and we all know how that turned out. If you want a good laugh, I dug up some reactions when Datsyuk signed in '07...
I still can't believe it.
Luongo 6.5 million. Datsyuk 6.7 million.
Which would you rather have?
Holland is an idiot. Not only has he just absolutely _BRICKED_ Detroit's salary structure for the next 7 years but he's probably pissed of Zetterberg who signed a super low contract two seasons ago.
7 yr deal for $45 Mill............. DISGUSTING
I love Datysuk, but thats gotta be one of the most pathetic contracts every given out.
It's not even that Datsyuk's unproven - he is a proven choker. Giving him this contract is like...giving Dan Cloutier a $6 million extension before he plays a single game for you
one of the most ridiculous contracts I've ever seen !
Wow, what a horrible deal for the Wings. I wouldn't give him four million a year. He's extremely soft and his play in the playoffs is horrendous.
I still can't understand the stupidity of Ken Holland; I mean I can understand it if he gives 6.5m+ for a short term 2yr deal with the player sacrificing stability for money. And getting him to sign a 7 year deal didn't even get him a discount like 5m or something.
What the hell was he negotiating all this time? What cake to order for dessert after meetings?
Was it just me of did 80% of the time Erickson had the puck did he almost turn it over?
Well Ericsson led our defense with 70 giveaways through the full season and led the team with 14 in 11 games of the playoffs. He had 1 more blocked shot than KINDL at 37 for the whole regular season with almost double the amount of games played as Jakob.
How bout hits? Hes our biggest D man and had the least hits of any of our bangers.
Numbers dont lie 15 points NOT goals, POINTS in 74 games from a guy that averages 18+ minutes a game is horrid. The fact he doesnt help with anything else sticks a fork in it. Some teams have a D man that cant shoot but does other things well. Truthfully, WHAT DOES ERICSSON DO WELL????
Was at the game, had my car broken into as well. Good night for me.
Anyway, it was so great seeing Franzen starting mouthing off to everyone only to back down every time he was challenged. Grow a pair, already. If you're going to challenge someone you should at least stand up and fight. Especially when your team is down 9-3 in the 3rd. What an absolute joke of a team right now.
Sorry to hear about that.
I found it pretty lame that nobody really showed any anger. Being down 9-3, 10-3. Come on, wake up. Franzen is better off just being invisible than running his mouth only to disappear when challenged.
