#2494741 Howard = Average

Posted by darkmanx on 12 March 2014 - 07:40 AM

Then why is above average minor league goalie Mrazek not starting every game?

 

Same reason Anthony Mantha isn't on the Wings. It doesn't work that way.

 

I actually like Howard, he was great last year, but I don't care what Howard has done in the past because it doesn't translate into this year. We have lost every year he was in net in the playoffs, not entirely his fault but other goaltenders with less talent in front of them find a way to get it done (Rangers, Leafs, Nashville, Phoenix). We are better then all those teams the last couple years.

 

He just can't get it done, and I highly doubt we win a cup with him. He's getting paid as a top 10 goalie, yet his stats show he's a top 25 goalie.

You do realize Howard lost by the exact same goal differential as Mrazek right ?

right, but if howie was in net, it would be what was howarddoing, terrible call, put gus in. I like Mrazek, and it wasn't his fault, but for some reason people around here hate on howie worse then franzen

 

Except Mrazek is 21, and isn't making 6 million dollars / year. Howie blows this year, no stat will change that.

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.




#2493114 3/7 GDT: Devils 4 at Red Wings 7

Posted by darkmanx on 08 March 2014 - 08:48 AM

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.
