Is Hudler seriously starting again tonight ? Put Draper in on the fourth and move Eaves up or something.

Price has started 21 games already and he's still awesome.

Just because there are odd-man rushes and a pk for the wigns the opponents doesn't have to score, a goalie can make a good save, you know?

On some here it sounds as though whenever there is a rush by the other team be it 2on1, 3on2 etc it's an automatic goal and nothing the goalie can do about it, get real, it doesn't have to be.

Howard has been absolutely brutal, yes the wings defense has been sloppy too at times but a goalie can still make up for it by making saves.

The goaltending situation kills this team in games like these.


it doesn't help when your defensemen is commiting to the player with the puck instead of covering the other player on a 2 on 1 situation which happened twice, how is the goalie supposed to anticipate the pass or shot when hes out of position because of it. Hockey 101, cover the open man.

To me it's not all about numbers, howard has good numbers because he has a great defense-first team in front of him, price is 3x better than howard ever will be, if you can't see this then you're just being a homer.


Montreal ranks in the top 5 every year for the most blocked shots in the NHL, and not to mention Howard has only played in the NHL for 1 complete year, and just starting his second and has started better than Price did.

09/10 - .287 GAA .911 Save %
08/09 - .285 GAA .904 Save %
07/08 - .265 GAA .920 Save %

J Howard

09/10 - 2.26 GAA .924 Save %

Stop trying to say something that most people already know is null. Price was a backup to Halak for a reason, he wasn't good enough to take the starter position.

or would you rather have...



no brainer for me.


#2060515 Bettman Moving on?

Posted by darkmanx on 09 November 2010 - 05:29 PM

Hopefully he doesn't go, things are just starting to look up and Bettman can do some great things business-wise with leverage considering how good the product is. He's done a great job so far.


Yea, great job by not selling Franchises that are hurting everyone to more successful markets right ?? Pheonix should have been sold and moved to Hamilton but because Bettman is soo damn pro USA he won't move them even though the market is thriving and hungry for a team there, not to mention the price Balsille was willing to pay double what anyone else was asking. Yea.. Great job Bettman. :thumbdown:

#2049338 Leafs are in 1st place overall!

Posted by darkmanx on 19 October 2010 - 05:40 PM

Man, I spent most of my life in Windsor which has a very large base of the most obnoxious Leafs fans and have had to deal with a life time of stupid comments from them year in and year out.... despite the fact that Detroit is one of the most successful teams of the last 20 years and the leafs have been crap since as long as my memory goes. Wanna talk about something that is getting old is hearing these stupid comments. The Wings-Leafs rivalry is alive and well in Windsor and I am a Leafs hater because of it... Piss on the Leafs and the Habs are next in line for most of the same reason!!


I agree with this mostly, I moved from Detroit to just outside of Toronto, and the Leaf fans over here are ridiculous, they are already going nuts about their 4 game winning streak. Its on every front page sport section, its on every hockey central episode even if they didn't play a game that night. If the Leafs were 30-11 half way through the season I could see why fans would be talking about some realistic conversation about Leafs making the playoffs. Their is a ton of Leaf fans out here that just flat out hate Detroit.. is it because of our success, I don't know but you can't even have a sticker or flag on your car and go to the mall without some idiot critizing who I cheer for and they don't even know a thing about me, and that I lived in Detroit for 15 years. I dunno, just my experience from Leaf fans, some are knowledgeable but majority of ignorant fans.
