#2593800 Babcock: Petr Mrazek is starting Game 1

Posted by gcom007 on 16 April 2015 - 10:46 AM

As I suspected, this is no "middle finger" to Holland, and Holland seems to be very much in league with Babcock on the decision to start Mrazek:


"I don't think we're changing goalies every time we lose," Holland said. "Right now it's an opportunity for Petr Mrazek. He's played real well. When he gives up a goal, when he loses a game, it appears he can bounce back. He's got a lot of confidence, a lot of swagger. He won the Calder Cup championship (with the Grand Rapids Griffins in 2013)."

Not a single sports writer is picking the Wings in this series. I like it.

#2592612 43-25-14......3rd seed in Division. Success or Failure?

Posted by frankgrimes on 12 April 2015 - 04:37 AM


I dont think he was saying Z was a loser, just that Z wasnt playing to the level that we are used to seeing him play, the bar is very high. I'm sure its because of injuries/natural regression and you cant fault the guy for that at all. He gives it his all, and that's all you can ask for.


Exactly I still like the guy a lot I mean, Z will play through anything if its possible  guy has set the bar sooo high so expectations for him are often - fair or unfair - different. Pasha and Z are the two last remaining (super)stars on this team and I would have loved seeing them get another cup or at least not having to stand up for themselves..


As far as Howard goes, before the injury success after that so-so.

#2592601 43-25-14......3rd seed in Division. Success or Failure?

Success overall. Failure for a lot of individuals. 


Quincey - lived up fairly well to his contract that pissed a lot of us off. 

Smith - fail

Tatar/Nyquist - success

Abby - success

Sheahan - sucess

Weiss - sucks to be him, fail in babs eyes

Jurco - fail

Ericsson - fail

Datsyuk - success 

Zetterberg - fail (I love Z but this was by far one of his worst seasons in point production. He knows it and so do we). I expect him to have a breakout season next year tho.  

Howard - fail

Mrazek - success (gained a lot of experience)


Overall - 100 points, into the playoffs? Success. The team effort balanced out in the end.


I agree with pretty much everything except Howard as I feel you have to grade him twice. In the first half he was one of the best goalies in the league, he had a GAA of 2.08 (if that still stood he would have finished 3rd in the NHL) and was in the discussion when talking about the Vezina. In the second half (post injury) he was awful.


Tough to judge with simply a pass or fail. He still was a HUGE part in the 100 points we got, stole a lot of games early.

Idk If you really want it, or if you just wanted to make that joke, but its right around the 1:30 mark either way.


No, I really wanted to see it. Thanks for the post.

It definitely seemed like it was coming into the bench from that angle, now the next time a pucks coming into the bench, he's not even going to flinch and he's going to get drilled in the mouth.


I don't think he learns. I think next time he'll not only grab the puck, he'll run away with it giggling.

#2591923 % chance of making the playoffs

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 10 April 2015 - 02:40 AM

I want them to miss the draft lottery because they traded their first. How amazing would that be?

I want them to miss the playoffs, and win the lottery so Edmonton can take Connor McDavid.

Where his generational talent will show up in the regular season stats, before not mattering after April.

oooooooooooooooo Sounds like Smith is in trouble

If we get one point against Carolina we'd clinch 3rd place. That point tonight would have been huge for us. On the other hand it may spare us the Canadians in the first round.

So Smith is still a brain dead idiot

#2590785 Erik Cole out for season, playoffs due to spinal cord contusion

Posted by chaps80 on 08 April 2015 - 07:33 PM

I'm interested to know the details of his "contusion" it could be pretty damn serious but I read somewhere he skated this morning? Hopefully he's able to return next season, those injuries could be career ending. Glad he's being cautious about it. 


Read earlier that the injury had something to do with when he broke his neck in the 2006 season. A number of doctors told him it's in his best interest to take the rest of the season off, or risk even worse career ending permanent damage. So I guess he COULD play, but it would be stupid of him to do so. He can still skate, but that's it.
