#2564326 1/18 GDT : Sabres 4 at Red Wings 6 (Z w/Hat Trick)

Need to pull the team in front of him.


Right. But petr wasn't getting the job done alone and doesn't deserve to be hung out to dry all night. With a goalie the team isn't "comfortable" with in net maybe they will tighten up and start to play better

Trade mrazek. #tankit


#2564265 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Assuming sproul continues his defense development and keeps his offensive game intact I think he makes it over Jensen.

I agree mrazek is good. And yes every goalie starts with no "nhl" playoff experience. So if he rides shotgun, he can see how things go in the playoffs and maybe even get a game or two in. You have to ease them in or they will most likely fail and have their confidence shattered.
And no I expect him to get a full year of experience as a backup and maybe even split time with Jimmy then within a couple seasons take over the number one spot

Right, just ignore the part about how his playing style helps the team....icon_think.gif
 
Mrazek is putting up similar numbers to Howard's (so also 'Top 10') and has won 3 straight


Yes mrazek is putting up good numbers, and no doubt his pu k playing ability is great. That doesn't mean they don't want Howard back, the guy is a rookie, he had one bad goal a couple weeks ago and everyone was ready to trade him for "x" player of the week. Now he has a few good games and we don't need our veteran top 10 goalie back? I'd rather reserve judgement till he has a season under his belt. He has no playoff experience, he's still quite young and I guarantee his playing style will bite him in the ads a few games during this stretch and everyone will want to trade him again.
Also mrazek has played 12 games, you can't say he's putting up top 10 numbers without mentioning that very small sample size. One 4-5 goal game and his stats will look bad, one shutout and he's better than rinne, that's what happens when you've played so few games this far into a season.

I want you're honest opinion.
 
Does anybody really miss Howard right now?
 
It sure seems like the team isn't. Did anybody hear Sheahan's post game comments to Keating? I'll paraphrase (cuz I don't remember exactly what he said) "We're really comfortable with him back there, he's great at playing the puck and starting our breakout..."


Yup they feel comfortable with him. That totally translates to we don't need our top 10 goalie back.

Everyone keeps saying it's not a testing game cause no rinne. We didn't have Howard. So it was pretty even, battle of the backups

Jarnkrok looks to be a pretty good 3rd liner for Nashville. 


Not the first liner up and coming Steve yzerman Sergei federov he was made out to be

 Because he's been a huge disappointment so far ... 


Ya he should be getting a point per game playing 10 minutes a night... *sigh*

Kip's an ass? I've been having amicable discussions, and even agreeing at times for like two weeks now. Does that make me guilty by ASSociation?

Ha... I'll just see myself out.


Ill sea myself out

Well, Kenny should at least kick the tires on this, but I doubt he will. lol


What are you talking about? If there is one thing Kenny will most definitely do, it's kick some tires

They have 1 more point than us.  We're 1-7 in the skills competetion.  If they're a powerhouse, what does that make us?


A brickhouse?


#2563735 Are the Wings a Contender?

Zetterberg, Datsyuk.  That's it.  For the right player I'd move anyone else.  It'd take a lot for me to move some guys, but I'd do it.  Anyone who says ANY prospect is off the table is nuts if they wouldn't move Mantha, Larkin, etc. as part of a package for a young established high end player.


Nope. Because what I would want in return for any of the prospects I mentioned would be way too high of a price that no one would pay.
