Dawwwwwwww These pads were tweeted out by former NHLer Brent Johnson and Kathryn Jean (@msconduct). No word on the designer, but one imagines its Ms. Migillicuttys first-grade class in Ann Arbor. (And six snowflakes on each pad for THE ORIGINAL SIX! Or just because they fit that way. One of the two.) Barring something unforeseen, Mrazek should be in action at Comerica Parks Winter Festival game between the Wings AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, and the Toronto Maple Leafs AHL team, the Toronto Marlies, on Dec. 30. The assumption around the Red Wings is that Jimmy Howard will be healthy for the Jan. 1 Winter Classic at The Big House, as he recovers from a sprained MCL. But if he cant go, goalie Mrazek would likely be the backup to Jonas Gustavsson. No matter in what game he appears, Mrazek should be confident that all shooters are going high glove side. No one with an ounce of the holiday spirit could dare unleash a slap shot at Frosty, could they? (Also, it would be the greatest thing in the history of winter if the snowman's carrot nose lit up every time the puck crossed the line...)
I would like to see Jarnkrok. We are having a serious center shortage
Franzen's glove to the face didn't look very bad at all. I bet he was just all pissy after the call was made because he was ready to keep playing then after the call was made he headed to the locked room. Now we have to go through all the protocol due to his ego when we need him in the worst way
Doesn't he have issues with concussions ? I wouldn't jump on him considering we don't even know the story.
GUYS, GUYS! I just met Tomas Tatar in downtown royal oak. My girlfriend n I were walking and we walked by him and a buddy speaking slovakian to each other. I called out his name n was like o s*** its you, lemme shake your hand. I shook his hand n told him hes been playin great lately and to keep scoring. He smile a huge smile and thanked me and intoduced himself and his buddy. Seemed genuinely appreciative of my compliments. Nice guy. Night made!
Nice, sounds awesome.Now did you give him his orders to take out Cleary ?
Monster starts next game! I say they roll with him until he loses otherwise our goalie situation will be like what it is in Toronto, no consistency. The biggest thing I notice between Monster and Howard is Monster helps out the D tremendously because he can play the puck, something Howard really needs to work on.
