#2582645 Mrazek to start how many games?

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 17 March 2015 - 10:18 PM

and Howard against Tampa

So we can probably count that as a loss then. Yes I'm going to be the grumpy old get off my lawn guy until Howard proves me wrong.

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.

Yeah it's never Howard's fault.

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.

Next time we should all throw flowers on the ice with love letters to Benn..Then KP and the likes would be happy.

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.

Can I take it back to when the political thread was still around?  ;)

Yes, I do.  Your razor sharp arguments cut me to the core. 

Kip let it go buddy. I'm not going to sit here and come up with a dissertation on why I believe fights should be a part of hockey. It's hockey for pete sake. Entertainment. I like the fighting...I like the big hits...I like the skill...I like the scoring....I hate Crosby. 


And that's the thing that is clear with you. You love the arguments. I have seen someone agree with you and you still pick them apart. Sorry that I don't fulfill your need.

It was nothing compared to Samuelsson's move, where he'd put the puck on his backhand, skate in a circle, and do nothing with it.  

Or Drapers "I'm on a breakaway but I'm going to shoot a slapper from the blue line and not skate in to try and deke the goalie move"

#2554072 Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 05 December 2014 - 11:52 AM

Seriously they don't deserve McDavid such a clueless and full of their past glorydays management doesn't deserve that kind of talent (the fans do obviously). But after all the struggles and BS Buffalo had to go through pre Pegula I would be very happy seeing them getting the next generational talent. At least their management is competent and doesn't put all the blame on some ~ 20 year old players ...



I just can't believe they did something like this.....I really truly don't understand how they thought this was going to have any kind of good come out of it....

Who do we have in our pressbox?  Hammer hands Draper?  

I will say, though, that Danny Cleary scored 50 goals in juniors.  It's worth giving him a shot.  

Man I remember ol drapes go to shot. He would be on a breakaway and instead of going in and deking the goalie he would shot it right at the blue line...use to make me so mad. When playing the nhl games that use to be the big joke when controlling him. I would always shot it from the blueline with him.
