#2574363 Is Jimmy Our Playoff Goalie?

Posted by amato on 24 February 2015 - 11:54 AM

Howard will start the next two years at least, mraz will start backup duties next season.

After that, they'll split time for a year.. riding the hot goalie.

Then consider trading howard during/after that season when he has one year left on his contract.


That's what I think anyway.. depending on the wings' cap situation and if Mraz develops like he's expected to. 




To answer the original question though, yes. obviously howard is our playoff goalie. 

He's had a couple rough games.. it happens to all goalies; especially ones coming off of injury. 

There's plenty of time for him to get hot before playoffs start.

Just heard them mention that big E donates $50 per hit to charity helping under privileged children. That's so awesome.

When this thread was created I didn't think it could get more ridiculous than it was to begin with.... Boy, was I wrong :P

I'm just still shocked that nbc argued against a Blackhawks goal....

Aaaand that's why all goals should be reviewed/challengable

#2571657 Getzlaf calls Ovechkin a diver, O says "I have hair"

Posted by amato on 18 February 2015 - 09:03 AM

Getzlaf's a jackass.  I watched that game.  The slash he calls Ovie out on was DEFINITELY a slash, right on his hands, and Ovie didn't react much at all.  He shook his hand, and pulled his glove off to look at it, but that's normal.  He didn't throw his hand up, or act like he'd been chopped down.  Then again, we are talking about the guy who did this when he was losing to Detroit so maybe Ovie's on to something.




hahahaha perry & getzlaf's combined frustration in this gif though.... I could watch it all day. :P

#2571497 Time for Teemu?

Posted by amato on 17 February 2015 - 12:45 PM

Can we just start calling Andersson Emdog from now on? I miss me some emdog.

Speaking of emdog.. the khl seems to be giving him a warm welcome....

20-year-old Alexei Kudreman assaulted former Detroit Red Wings forward Cory Emmerton with 4 seconds left in regulation in a good old-fashioned Vityaz way. Emmerton had to get 5 stitches for laceration received during the incident. Hes currently being diagnosed for concussion.

Someone posted a defensive salary cap comment on Twitter. Preds vs. Flyers.... Wow.

"Weber Josi Jones Franson Ellis Ekholm Volchenkov -- $20,619,143 cap
Streit Coburn MDZ Schenn Schultz MacDonald Grossmann -- $24,400,000 cap"

Pulk has looked amazing all game long. Guarantee he's up next year.. Mantha and Athanasiou are definitely developing some great chemistry.. The kind of chemistry that we saw with tater, nyquist, sheahan, and jurco all coming up to the wings

& tie game!!! Kind of hope I get to see some of new OT format..

#2570315 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by amato on 12 February 2015 - 03:27 PM

Yeah, "Very professional response." should be your only comment back to that :P

Well played.

#2570245 Sekera to Red Wings ?

Posted by amato on 12 February 2015 - 07:44 AM

I don't see him bumping anyone out of the top 4, and like others said he shoots left.  If they get a D it will be a clear upgrade and/or a right shot.

I agree. I could see Holland holding onto all picks/prospects rather than trade for someone like sekera. I'm not knocking the guy, he's not a bad player by any stretch but I'm not sure he has a future here.

#2569866 So, Evander Kane...

Posted by amato on 11 February 2015 - 02:42 PM

Stafford is a UFA though.  If he leaves at the end of the season, do people still think Winnipeg wins this trade?  

Yes because I think he helps them make the playoffs. At the very least he gives them another solid forward to fill the hole Kane would have left either way.

Hopefully they can find a way to re-sign him.
