No more Kronwall. This team is small and weak. I hope they go all the way... but good luck with that.
As for the league... yes it is soccer on ice.
After getting our asses handed to us in Chicago in the playoffs when they started pushing us around and we just sat their like a bunch of pansies I'm not sure how anyone can say we don't' need some toughness on the team.
I love it!!! Give him a shot for sure and keep him on a short leash. Old beach ball crotch can get all pissy all he wants. He hasn't played good enough to warrant a playoff start. Babs is going with his best right now on the ice and that is Mrazek.
You've regularly argued that goons like Orr and McLaren should attack other players whether they want to fight or not. For no other reason than to "entertain the fans". I'm not sure your condemnation is exactly credible.
"If I'm Nonis I'd call up Orr, McLaren, Devane and Biggs tell them to do whatever it takes to give the fans some enjoyment for their money and if other teams won't accept the fight start it anyways, there are too many rats running around and fans want entertainment." - Frankgrimes
oh god are you going to really use this as your soapbox? give it a rest already..you hate fighters...we get it.
So the worst scoring team in the NHL puts 5 on howard...I love it. That OT goal Howard needs to be benched for 2 or 3 games for. He never even went down. He thought he was McLean or something. What a joke.
Everyone blames the Defense. Other goalies in this league on worse teams steal games. Howard just can't seem to do that. From what I saw, quite a few of those goals were stoppable. Good on Babs for leaving him out there. Maybe he's sick of his half assed play as well.
Check this out from the HF rangers board.
Redwings are like that skinny little "chinese kid who only used Guile in street fighter 2. You remember the cheese combo? Ya that's what I'm talking about. Lack skill so they cheese."
First time I've ever seen someone say the wings lacked skill.
They are idiots. After the trade deadline everyone started creaming over them saying they were the best team ever to skate on the ice because of the overrated yandle and that they were going to win the cup this season. When a team like the wings that wasn't even suppose to make the playoffs beats them its because of home cooking and cheating. I wish I could punch every rag fan right in the nose that says that.
Mrazek gets a break from some fans because he's our #3. He had some really bad games while being thrust into the starting role with our #1 and #2 out, and got lucky the team scored enough so he could win games. It was'nt as if he came up and had multiple shutouts and lots of games with 1 or 2 GAA. He struggled, some nights badly. But I guess as long as were winning, who cares right? lol
Howard is expected to perform, and when he does'nt, even if it's his first start in over a month, he does'nt get those breaks. It's all on him, even when the whole team sucks. When or if Mraz is the legitimate starter, it'll be like that for him too. Goalie bashing is LGW favourite pastime.
No Howard doesn't get breaks because we go from 3-1 to 5-4 and lose in a shootout. Howard wont get a break because we have lost 8 out of the 10 shootouts we have been in with him. Not saying he isn't a good goalie, he is but for people to get all mad because we get on him because of those reasons is a bit silly. If it were just here and there it would be one thing but its a trend with him especially in the shootouts, let's be honest here.
