Idk why you guys think Mrazek is going to do any better than Howard did against Calgary or how Gus did tonight. Have you forgetten that Mrazek too has let in 4-5 goals per game. MULTIPLE times. I think he went on a stretch (3 games in a row?) where he left 4,5 goals in consecutively. Yes I do believe Mrazek is a great goalie but lets not get too excited that he's some elite goalie that's going to save us. The wings have to play tighter in general in order to prevent these massacres from occuring.
I am definitely looking forward to Mrazek's puck handling to help the D out in a few games down this stretch tho.
He's 22 and it's normal he will have a few hiccups but he'll have way many better performances than bad ones ... A few of monsters goals he let in today were embarrassing
Mrazek is the future ... Gus will be in Sweden in a few years
Having lived in Michigan until a year ago when I headed down south, I can't help but laugh at how people get so worked up about a little snow. But at this point, I'm terrified of the roads down here now too. It's not the snow though, it's the idiots who have no idea how to drive in it and assume they can tear through traffic as usual because they're in a pickup truck. Ridiculousness all around. I miss the north...
I'm not understanding the Rag's fans. They lost. So what is they put a lot of shots on net. Whoop-dee-doo. How many games/series has the Wings lost over the years looking like that? It's about the timely goals; and this team has that in spades.
Lack of skill? Whatever. You can't be the number 1 PP in the league without skill. Honest opinion? Sore losers. They expected to wipe the floor with the Wings, because you know...they are the supposed "cup favorites". The Wings? This team was never supposed to make it to the playoffs according to critics and HFboards "critics", so as far as they are concerned? Over achievers AKA just a bubble team, AKA easy win.
Looks like they are a fan base that doesn't know how to handle the success of the team they root for. Horrible winners, and sore losers. Hate to read the web-sites I go to if they win the cup. Ugh.
Do I think this team can go all the way? Small chance. Do I think this team can make a huge splash? Hell, yea! Much bigger than any other fan base give this team credit for. I predict some salt coming the other way come playoff time courtesy of the Red Wings.
Side note. Whats with the personal attacks? So the RED WINGS win, and they say crap like "at least I don't live there." Really? Stay classy, eh.
...this is a great trade for the Wings. We lost two prospects who have zero future here. Two prospects who have very little value. And by trading them, this team has a better shot at a deep playoff run.
It's really this simple. Why is this so hard to see?
Ken Holland calls the trades to get Zidlicky and Cole more of depth moves. Mentioned Erik Cole playing on a line with Zetterberg. #Wings
And are Cleary and Cole REALLY being compared? Cole's scored more goals than Cleary's played this year.
People are just looking for ANY reason to be negative. Kenny makes two great trades for the first time in forever, and people still slaughter him. I'm as skeptical of the "kicking tires" and "we like our team" crap, but the man deserves his due. We got better in the last 2 days and have just as good a chance of any team in the East to go on a run.
just want to give a huge kudo to Kenny for not caving in a trading our top prospects! He made the team better with both Cole and Zidlicky! Lost nobody of significance doing so either! Thank you Kenny! Lets Go Wings! Bring on the NHL!
