#1937940 Howard Becomes Yet Another Different Wings Playoff Starter

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 April 2010 - 06:51 PM

With Jimmy Howard being the starter in the playoffs, that got me thinking about how many different netminders we've started in the playoffs since the mid 90's.

Osgood, Vernon, Hasek, Cujo, Legace and now Howard. You can even count Ozzie and Hasek twice, because they've had several different stints with the team.

I don't think there's ever been a dynasty in the NHL that had so many different starting goalies during their run.

I think it's a testament to our defense and the system that we can keep rotating goalies like this every couple of years in the playoffs.

Let's just hope that with Howard we've found someone who can stay here for about 10 years or so.

#1934581 Any Word on Hossa's injury?

Posted by Carman on 08 April 2010 - 12:49 AM

Hossa was the best Winger to ever wear a Red Wing sweater.

It was a pleasure to have an actually great player on our team for once.

I like Bertuzzi, and I loved getting him this year.

But I really wouldn't want him back, he's too inconsistent and too unreliable. He's been unusually lucky injury-wise(Knock on wood) this year, and doesn't have much left in the tank.

If we can get him at the same rate I'll be up for it, but most likely he'll get a raise and I'm not up for that.

#1933139 Should the Wings part ways with Osgood?

Posted by stevkrause on 06 April 2010 - 06:48 AM

I hate polls like this, because they don't take into account all the factors - he was signed after 35, so if we cut ties, we're sucking up cap space to make a player go away... he has had an OBVIOUSLY positive impact on Howard and one more year backing up Howard can't hurt... after his contract is up, let him retire a Wing, with 400 wins, on his own terms and go out right... he has been a professional and done a lot for this team and deserves it.

I think detroit should go for carey price now that they obviously gonna roll with Halak and price's tradevalue is far from what it was before... Filppula+pick for Price... GET ER DONE... Price would look like a wall behind the detroit defense and selke-forwards...howard would be a decent backup.

#1933488 Igor or Pavel

Posted by zettie85 on 06 April 2010 - 04:36 PM

Datsyuk would have gotten pumelled with the new NHL rules to, and crosby is built better for the old NHL then pavel you guys way overexaggerate crosby as a *****, he can take contact but a certain point it bothers him.

Datsyuk dishes out more contact then he receives. He is feisty little Russian with magical hands.

Trade or No re-sign


Time to move on,,,

#1932436 Wings are playoff bound.

Posted by mindfly on 04 April 2010 - 08:16 PM

Superhot Vancouver? Didn't they just get shelled 8-3?

Chicago who have a starting goalies worse than our backup?

Yes, very frightening.

I would take Niemi over both Howard and Osgood based on how they played recently.

#1932309 Wings are playoff bound.

Posted by zettie85 on 04 April 2010 - 05:13 PM

They have played like they should ~3 out of 79 games.. that's some serious SUCKING.

Well that doesn't matter anymore.

It's the 16 wins we need starting in 2 weeks that matter.

#1931550 Ozzie hides when backing up

Posted by Pucks on 04 April 2010 - 09:21 AM

I can't believe you guys don't know this? He's doing a workout tape. It's Richard Simmons - Sweatin to the oldies. It's quite intense though and you need the proper attire.

#1931463 Ozzie hides when backing up

Posted by DetroitWhat on 04 April 2010 - 12:39 AM

Has anyone else noticed that Ozzie seems to be hiding ever since he has become the clear cut backup. Usually the backup goalie hangs out on the bench/hallway near equipment manager Paul Boyer and charts the shots during the game. The backup also usually comes out on the ice with the rest of the players after the game to congratulate the winning goalie. I have been to a couple of home games recently and have noticed that Ozzie does not stand on the bench or come out to congratulate Howard after a victory. I have read nothing but positive quotes from Babcock and Howard about how great of a teammate and mentor Ozzie has been for Howard but I am very surprised that he is not being a team player. Even Hasek let his ego go during the 2008 playoff run when he was diminished to a backup role. He continued to be great in practice and sit on the bench and support Ozzie and the rest of his teammates on their run to the cup. I am disappointed in Ozzie and feel that he is being a bit selfish. What are your thoughts?

#1931711 4/4 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Flyers 4

Posted by zettie85 on 04 April 2010 - 11:55 AM

and right now we are seeing the blueprint for teams on how to play and beat the Wings in the playoffs.....

get physical, don't give the skills players room to move and hit them at every turn.

We will have May, Abdelkader and Tollefson come playoff time if we need toughness so I'm not worried about that.
