It's up to YOU, the fans, to do something about this! When the goalie gets run, jump the glass and go after the offending player!

#2238349 Howard > Vokoun

Posted by Guest on 22 December 2011 - 02:44 PM

i just checked the current shots against stats for both goalies and, wow:

vokoun - 588
howard - 764

yay howard, indeed.

boo, defense.

Howard has played in eight more games. He's facing roughly three less shots per game than is Vokoun.

Not entirely true. Neuvirth actually started the season opener for the Capitals and Boudreau had implied when Vokoun signed, that he was likely going to pretty much split time between the two goalies. Vokoun started well (as did the team) and Neuvirth missed some time. Even now, Neuvirth is getting most of the starts lately so I wouldn't call Vokoun an undisputed starter by any stretch.

Boudreau announced Vokoun as Washington's starter almost immediately after he was signed. Neuvirth started the season as the backup.

Even if Vokoun doesn't outplay Howard with the Red Wings, he would still be one of the best backup goalies in the league and give Detroit an elite tandem in goal. Instead, Howard is getting overplayed because Conklin has been awful in every start except his first.

There's not a chance Vokoun would have agreed to be a backup goalie. He left Florida and took a massive salary cut so that he could have a better chance of winning a Cup. He'd not have entertained the idea of playing for a team on which he very possibly might end up riding the pine in the playoffs.

He was on the ice for one of LA's goals?

On ice for both goals, as a matter of fact. One of his points was on the PP, no plus. The assist he had on Hank's goal doesn't get him a plus because he went for a change; those layabouts Lidstrom and White got the plusses. He does get a plus on his own goal, of course, so that's a net minus one.

if that's what happened than #%@& him. get as much money from him as you can.

plenty of witnesses i would imagine - hard to embellish this.

Why? If someone wronged me or my brothers, my parents wouldn't sue them, they'd go an eye for an eye, or in this case, beat the s*** out of the guy who "shook" me. You don't f*** with the Irish.

I've never seen Ericsson play with any balls anyway. He'll be fine.
