Oh ok. New coach so Jimmy is #1 again. What has Jimmy done to deserve #1 again?
Started 330 NHL games with a .916 save percentage. Plus he played extremely well the first half of the season before his injury. A much larger sample than 7 games.
Mrazek doesn't have to steal anything. He already won the job from Howard.
Proof? Starting every playoff game in the playoffs is a prime example. But yeah...Jimmy is still #1 right? Ok guy. Lol
I'm guessing they'll both get a shot at the starting job.
This is in no way a criticism of Mrazek. Just that the team would be foolish to hand over the reigns completely to a guy with something like 41 NHL starts and who hasn't started more than 50 games since the OHL.
They may start Mrazek right out of the gate, but he will have to play very well to hang onto the spot with Howard on the bench behind him. My guess is they play them as a tandem and keep them fighting for the #1 spot.
