Ya take my word for it was bad. Dont watch highlights later or risk the chance of vomiting lol.


I knew I should have picked up a new bottle of the Macallan before the game. :)

It wasnt that good of a rip. You expect goalies in this league to stop it every time. It was right down the middle with no screen so he saw it all the way.


I thought he was more to the side and Mrazek had to move laterally, my wife was talking to me when he scored it. I'll take your word for it. :)

He never played consistently last season so it's really tough to compare the two. Guys come up and have a solid game running on adrenaline, but it's almost always a flash in the pan. You can't get too up or down on a guy based on what he does on a random call up.
 
And I'm not going to suggest that Mrazek has been good the last four games because he hasn't, but I'm not going to hold it against him. He shouldn't be here right now. He should be in the AHL. But as said, I think it's good that he's getting this experience because it's going to push him all the harder.
 
Next year he's likely going to come in and play backup, and he'll get a lot of opportunities to prove himself. If he keeps growing and keeps pushing and cleans up some of the problem areas in his game, he'll do well in that role. He's got the skill set and potential to go toe and toe with Howard in the next couple years. A rough stretch on this extended call up is not going to change my mind about that.


Very well said!

Bishop is a great (HUGE!!!) goalie, not that he's had to do anything at all tonight.  Change goalies and take Mraz off the meat hook he's been hanging on the entire game.
 
Wings can turn this around.  If not, we can be proud that we're getting trounced the worst than any other team playing tonight.   ;)


Time to cue the Lost Boys?
