Is scoring seven goals something the goalies control? I do agree the team wins more with Monster, but I'm not sure that's a direct reflection of his goaltending.

 

I'm saying you play the goalie that gets you wins irregardless of who lets in less / more goals. When Gus plays they win, when Howard plays they don't.

 

As I said, start Mrazek he can't be any worse then Howard.

Howard should've had that

 

Yes. The Howard apologists will be around shortly.

 

Not sure if I should catch up on work at work or finish watching the first period after that start.

Howard gives up 3 last night, one of which was a terrible unlucky bounce and another a complete defensive breakdown, and gets crucified by the fans after the game. The next night Gus gives up 4 and looks shakier than Howard yet the offense bails him out with 7 goals and not a peep about his less than stellar game. More proof that Wings fans will never be happy with a goaltender and will always be wanting "the next one" instead of the current one.

 

Are we basing this off one game ? Howard has sucked almost all year, Gus has won us some big games.

How is that not goaltender interference?

 

If he was wearing a Holmstrom jersey it would have been called. True story.

I guess the main difference between Jimmy and Gus is that Gus wears his goalie pads while watching TV and I suppose Jimmy doesn't.

Gus makes a huge difference in net because he plays the puck so well. It's night and day after watching yesterdays game of how huge a goaltender that can play the puck really is.

Howard lets that in... just sayin

Bert's looking good out there.

 

Wonder why. He's only playing Colorado. :lol:

not many people league wide in today's game are as great as Nick, Stevie and Gordie...

 

This. You can't really compare anyone to them. Same with Jagr, he's a truly fantastic player, even in today's NHL.

Sheahan probably made Jarnkrok expendable by his play this year. I believe Babcock thinks he could fill a top 6 center in future.

I don't think Eaves is mediocre.  He's a good bottom six player.  

 

But the Wings have a very similar player in Miller and Eaves contract is up at the end of the season.  It's just that it wasn't surprising of a move, and should allow him to play more in Nashville than he would have in Detroit. 

 

In terms of what the Wings gave up though I do agree he's being somewhat overlooked.  They gave up a decent roster player, a prospect, and potentially a 2nd rounder for what could be a 20 game rental.

 

I think they know he's going to sign again in Detroit and so does Poile, which is why the price was so high.

 

I could be wrong, but just have that feeling.
