Or people aren't on LGW because it's nothing but people complaining about how we suck? Or because it's a Friday night and people are out? Most of the people here are die hards, and some of us have been Wings fans long enough to remember what *really* losing was like. I doubt this season will push all but a handful away.
Sorry if I'm being overly sensitive, it's been a day...
Haha it's all good. It's only 6:00 here, so I didn't think about the other factors.
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
I think it's just because he has been so bad this year. You just expect the puck to go in at critical points during the game when he is in. I am a huge Howard fan, but I have very little confidence in him when it comes down to it. It's also probably because we need him to be the best player on the ice, and he flat out has been average or below average all season long. I just hope he can right the ship next season because he is making way too much to be playing the way he is.
2.13 GAA, .923 save percentage last regular season. Easily the biggest reason the Red Wings made the playoffs at all. Followed that up with a 2.44 GAA and .924 save percentage against the top two seeds in the West. Mind you, all in front of a makeshift defense.
So nothing, if you only want to look at Jimmy's struggles this season like he has never bailed the Red Wings out before or proven his worth.
I agree he was outstanding last year and through the playoffs, but I just hope that wasn't a flash in the pan. He hasn't been very good this year, and with sports, it's always a what have you done for me lately attitude.
It's so demoralizing to the team when goals like that go in. Howard's fault or not (which in my opinion that goal was very weak), the guys have not given up many chances at all tonight and the game is still tied. Howard needs to figure it out 13 wins this season is absolutely pathetic.
