#2557443 Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

Posted by haroldsnepsts on Yesterday, 02:38 PM

"What I don't like is Howie stood on his head and leaves the rink feeling like he didn't win," Babcock said. "They don't have a home run derby at the end of a tied ballgame. It doesn't make any sense."

 

Boo hoo. 

 

Isn't this the same guy who always talks about not making excuses, and only worrying about things you can control?

 

This whole organization is on a crusade against the shootout.  And the funny part is, the more the GM and coach ***** about it and fight against it, the worse we do.  If you guys recall, we used to be fairly decent in the shootout. 

 

Agreed. 

 

While I agree with Babcock's sentiment, especially given how well Jimmy played during actual hockey, the reality is that the NHL does have the equivalent of a home run derby deciding games.  The Wings have been terrible at it, and it's costing them points.  Suck it up.

 

As for the Wings being fairly decent at it in the past. They've lost a lot of the guys who could actually score, like Bertuzzi.   Howard is a problem.  But man o man they don't score much either.

 

I've said this before but I'm a little surprised that the younger guys aren't better at it.   Seems like by sheer percentages the Wings should have a few cocky euros who know all sorts of ridiculous shootout tricks they practiced growing up.   :D

Honestly, next shootout they should just throw Mrazek in cold and have Quincey, Ericsson and Al Sobotka as the shooters, because, what the hell, right?

Just trade for TJ Oshie and let him take every attempt.

It really is sad that Howard is inept in the SO, but then again, the Red Wings can't score either.  Thank goodness there are no Shoot Outs in the playoffs.

Seriously Howard is so pathetic at shootouts we might as well put a cardboard cutout in net.

f*** your gifted goal. You can have it.

You have to understand the pressure the guys in the war room were feeling, after all two people lost their jobs the last time they waived off a goal in Detroit's favor.

Of course the Wings get the only penalty in that scrum.

Of course. Devils down 4-2, so the Wings get the only penalty somehow out of that. Gotta love officiating by the score.

2 goals per game....never going to win on a regular basis scoring 2 goals per game.


Not with this defense, thats for sure.
