Sorry the Babcock quote makes zero sense to me.... "Tie goes to the best player" well then it isn't a tie is it.
People comparing it to the "tie goes to the vet" quote. That was completely different, saying if two players are just as good the vet gets it is way different then if the better guy is better then the better guy plays. That's just common sense lol
Guys, it's only a 2 year deal. If we signed someone as a FA, we'd have to pay more and for a longer term. For a defenceman who plays 20 minutes a night, it's a good contract. Quincey would have got more if he hit the open market.
Oh no, pay ehrhoff the same or niskanen 1.5 more lol..... There is no way any one can defend holland on this, and say it was the best move for this team and organization.
Howard didn't given them the momentum, Detroit did.... A pp goal by Hamilton walking down the slot on a stupid penalty... That's what killed the momentum... A terrible change by detroit, that's what killed the momentum.... Howard can bail his team out every time and people who say he never does... This game should have been worse then 2-0
Sorry but that's complete BS, Howard didn't even have to break a sweat after the first two goals, Boston stopped pushing and barely had a decent chance after that and why should they? He'd already given them enough.
Granted he is far from the only problem, the rest of the team played like crap too but this team is never going anywhere with mr unclutch Howard.
Yea they only had a couple odd man rushes, power plays... Just everyday stuff... Detroit played terrible, the offense and defense played god awful but were going to blame Howard for a BAR DOWN SHOT FROM THE SLOT, that our d did nothing about... It's wasn't a wrist shot from the blue line... It was ripped shelf from the hash marks.
If that was datsyuk we would all be saying how amazing of a shot it was and rask had no chance, but Howard has been the scape goat all season cause he started terrible.
In my opinion, you take that entire game and throw it out the window. We played terrible.
Like someone stated before this series will be dictated on how the games are played. The Bruins have no fear of taking liberties to take us off our game because even if we get a pp it builds momentum for them.
Go back to the drawing board because if we can't figure out how to turn our PP into at least some sort of momentum let alone a goal. This series is over pretty quick. Our zone entry today was the worst I have seen in a long time. We didn't just have one bad PP but 4 giving Boston the momentum.
So leave that game in the dude it was a terrible performance at every end of the rink. Use the home ground to get the legs moving and out work them down low.
This game has been a joke wise officiating... Don't get me wrong we sucked, out worked out skated out battles but the difference between what Boston can get away with and what we get
Called for is rediculous
