Yep. The league needs a Montreal vs. Detroit matchup. Would be good for their niche audience.
Are you one of those people who refuse to believe that sports may be rigged in this country?
I feel bad for anyone who actually believes sports aren't rigged in any country .
Can they predict the exact scores? Obviously not if a goalie comes and makes 58 saves let's say and ruins it nothing they can do but they can try to influence a game to go one way by giving penalties and giving out ridiculous suspensions
Some of this stuff is just ridiculous lol ... Did I agree with every move holland ever made? Nope ... Hated giving up janmark ... Said from day 1 weiss would be a bust , didn't like resigning again and again samuelsson cleary and bertuzzi
But to blame holland for such of the stupidities I read?
Not preparing for lidstrom's departure? He tried to sign ryan suter and it didn't work , short of that wtf you want him to do? Nobody is gonna trade away a weber or Keith etc... We have to hope we develop one or wait for one to actually be a ufa and target them like everyone else will
Taking a shot at nyquist? Short of us never having drafted nyquist wtf do you want holland to do? And without nyquist's goal production we Wouldnt even be in the playoffs
Overall Taking digs at holland is just nonsense .... Nobody is just giving away there best players
I base that on how he's constantly out of position and can't stop a breakaway, along with losing two games for us. Mrazek was not good at all tonight. Yes, he made a crazy save but only because he was, again, out of position.I'll just go ahead and not respond to your childish remark.Being a coach or GM doesn't make a person smart. The fact is Mrazek lost us two games. Going with either goalie is a gamble, but I'd rather gamble on the goalie that has proven himself. Mrazek is going to be an amazing goalie in a couple years but he still has a ton to learn.
Are you for f***en real?? Mrazek got us 2 shootouts and a 44save game ... He wasn't to blame for tonight's loss
We'd be out already if we had howard in .... And mrazek started 6 games in the series
This says we're at 49 contracts: https://docs.google....p=sharing#gid=0
As for Hyman, I think it's worth a shot, but I also think it's important to temper our expectations. Anyone remember Willie Coetzee? He showed some chemistry with Ferraro the year that Landon scored 37 in Red Deer. Doesn't always work out...
Thanks for the list man ... Didn't think guys from Grand Rapids like Miele and porter would count ... I see quite a few guys leaving and making place for other guys for us to sign anyways
As for hyman he doesn't cost us anything so if he can be had for free then just sign him and whatever happens happens
Hyman sounds like he has a high potential for being a bust. A 3year entry level deal may be too much to risk on him if it costs a possibly better player a roster spot.
That being said I think his first choice is clearly the Wings, unless he's a true blue Leafs homer. Shafting the kats in order to go play with your buddy Larkin in GR makes sense to me.
Gotta think porter Miele Aubry McCollum cole cleary etc... Will most likely not return thus giving us space to sign him and mcnulty/wheaton and a free agent or 2
If he doesn't pan out I can't see a team not taking a chance on a 23 yr old kid with potential
That's kind the problem, his bad games and good games seem to alternate, which he needs to change...
I imagine well run a tandem next year, unless we win the cup with Mrazek, in which case he's the guy.
Still 23 though and it shows a lot about him that he doesn't let a bad game get to him ... Just give him more action and he will feel more comfortable .... He's still just starting so a solid backup who could play 20-30 games incase would be ideal
Can't think of someone but I'm sure we could find a goalie
Jimmy bashing again? Can't you people just be happy we won. Sheesh.
Problem is now, if Petr continued and proves he deserves the #1 spot next season, what do we do with Howard? Can't have a $5M backup....
Been saying for the longest time to trade howard for pieces to help us and get a veteran backup goalie ... Mrazek is the real deal and future star ... Last game we lost 5-1 and he comes back with a shutout
