#2586299 3/28 GDT : Lightning 0 at Red Wings 4

wrong? Me? NEVER!!!!

 

I’ll ask you the same sort of question I asked SimonSin on page two of this GDT. Would you be sad if Jimmy went on a rampage and took this team deep into the playoffs?  Would you rather be right, or would you rather the team had success regardless of your predictions? Obviously you’d love Howard to terribad himself out of a job and for Mrazek to win the Conn Smyth. Win-win for you. BUT, if you had to chose, what would it be? LeftWinger the prophet, or a deep playoff run?

Sucks we play tomorrow so Babs probably plays Jimmy. Otherwise I think Mrazek would get the next start. If Jimmy has a good game then we're right back where we started with the goalie controversy

 

I’d be OK with two good games in a row by two different goalies. That being said, I imagine Mrazek will start.

I expected some of the LGWs members who are usually polluting these GDTs during a loss to swing by here and say some nice things about the Wings. They must be busy. It is Saturday afternoon after all.

Luke’s played great though. Especially on the PK.

Howard must be wondering where all these blocked shots from his teammates were on point shots the last few games.

Weiss, bar. Not this crap again. 

 

Another waisted PP

 

That was great looking PP.  Fatso in net is hard to score on.

Geez, Lundqvist’s pulling a Howard today in Boston. 3 goals on 16 shots or something.

My heart rate increases maybe 2% when Glendenning has a breakaway. That’s how excited I get.

The downhill slide continues. Tampa 5 Wings 2.


Will you be sad if they win?

I'm going to be optimistic..., because, really what's the alternative.


There's a pretty decent chance that if you wait until about page 24 of this GDT, you'll see the alternative of optimistic.


#2585918 Is A First Round Exit Imminent?

Too late to tank it now.


Don't lose faith, there's always next year. Keep that dream alive.

In response to the OP. IF this team can get healthy and IF the kids get a boost from some playoff adrenaline and IF, say Mrazek plays like Halak did for Montreal in 2010 and IF Babcock starts making better decisions and IF they get some puck luck, then maybe they can squirm their way out of the first round. But obviously that's a lot of IFs.

Sheahan hurt during this game. Won't play Saturday. Datsyuk questionable as well. Ladies and gents, your 2nd line center..................Joakim Andersson.




#2585781 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by rick zombo on 26 March 2015 - 10:22 PM

If Mrazek gets us into the playoffs, there's no way Howard will start.  Even Babcock isn't that stupid.  You don't punish a young goalie who carries you into the playoffs by benching him once the playoffs begin.  Bad for morale.  
 
This could be the last (hopefully) that we've seen of Howard as the number one goalie.

He punished Kindl for scoring a goal and making a beautiful breakaway pass on Abdlekader's goal last game but doesn't punish Ericsson for being useless. He punishes Weiss for turning the puck over vs Boston but refuses to punish Nyquist, who turned the puck over at least six time tonight. I say he has the potential to be "that stupid".
