Aside from the fact that you can't tell the future, I'm not saying that Howard should start game 7, it's too late for that. But Howard at the top of his game (which he was at for most of the year) is better and more consistent overall that Mrazek, who has had two very bad games in this series. He won three games, yes, you're not all knowing so you can't say that Howard would not have also won the games.
Completely agreed. That doesn't mean I think Mrazek should be playing over Howard.
What series have you been watching? Mrazek has played better in this series than Jimmy has played in any series. Keep in mind Jimmy also had Lidstrom and raFi for a few seasons as well. Mrazek has been our best player and was not the reason we lost last night at all.
Babcock is outcoaching the hell out of Cooper. A testament to why he needs to stay. Our roster isn't as good as it's performing against a team like Tampa. This is coming down to goaltending, heart and coaching. I hope we win the next game to make it a 4-2 series and make everyone who wrote the Wings off feel stupid.
