In Topic: Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

When the wings shooters actually start scoring consistently in the shootout then blame can be put on Howard. Just in general this team is terrible at shootouts. With scoring and goal-tending.

Learning the pro game and coming off an injury that killed his pre-season. The chances of his coming in an lighting the league up were slim before the injury. If year 2 comes and hes still going at 1 pt in 5 games you can be worried.

Howard thinking: Quincey huh, ya skating to the corner sounds more entertaining than watching that fight.


In Topic: Why is Kindl not playing?

Back on topic, Kindl is decent offensively, but I have a feeling he is holding the stick so tightly it's causing more defensive miscues because he's afraid of screwing up since he's on such a short leash.

 

I disagree there. He is right around 20 pts a season average. Thats not good when your supposed to be an offensive defensive. When you can put up 40+ pts a season as a dman being weak defensively can be overlooked. 20 pts no way. Plain and simple hes just not a good NHL D-man. Like I said in my previous post for where he was drafted he was a major bust.

What its come down to is Kindl is a bust. As a 19 overall pick 8 years into being a pro he cant top being the teams 6-7th dman. I wouldnt be surprised if Kindl was the one Babs wanted gone for XO to be on the team at the start. Kindl has been as bad this year as he was last year. His partners and Howard especially have been playing a lot better so his bonehead mistakes and bad coverage havnt costed the Wings as much as it has. I think the Wings are trying to move him. He doesnt have much value right now but if they continue to let him play that value will continue to go down.
