In Topic: Petr Mrazek is the #1

Today, 10:51 AM


That's mildly shocking. Nothing against Mrazek, but I would've thought Babcock would take almost any reason to ride Jimmy into the playoffs, slump or not. I like Mrazek, and I think he's taking Jimmy's job next year or the year after, but I just don't know how I feel about this being the year.

The one thing I thought that could be working in Mrazek's favor is the puck-moving ability and the fact that we tend to score a lot of goals when he's in net. When he's on, we're scoring and not giving up much. When he's off, we may give up more goals, but we're still scoring a lot of goals. Unless Howard is a far bigger mess than he seems, this is about the only reason I can see for really riding Mrazek into the playoffs.

Will tell everyone one thing, we currently don't have a number one who goalie who can steal games on a consistent basis. Of course, turnovers and the defense has helped much either

 

This is the unfortunate truth right now. Howard doesn't have his head screwed on straight lately and Mrazek is a promising rookie with plenty of rookie problems. Either way we go is likely to lead to issues, especially with the way the D has been playing. This team is going to have to really tighten up around their goalies if anything good is going to happen in the playoffs. But I'm not holding my breath. We shouldn't be disappointed if this turns into another learning year for this young team. There's no shame in that.

I knew we'd pay for how well yesterday went...what an absolutely ridiculous game this is.

A rookie and a slumping Howard...we really are not in great shape in net. Should be no doubters left about that after today.
