#2570938 Next Number to be retired

Posted by GoalieManPat on 15 February 2015 - 12:49 PM

13 and 40 both. They're generational players.

 

While being great players neither are in that echelon of the others who had there numbers retired. They are like Shanny only Shanny has 3 cups. Just because they are the best players of this generation of Wings doesnt mean they are all time greats.

Lol 3 stars? Tatar, OEL, Mike Smith. Ooookay.

 

LoL. Yup. Our section erupted in laughter when that was announced. To be fair they were picked by the Coyotes broadcast team and well....they are morons.

Moved to Phoenix a month ago. Glad the Wings were out here so soon. It's amazing how many Wings jerseys there are compared to Coyotes. A Yotes fan a couple rows back has been complaining about it since we sat down.

As long as Petr and the team uses it as a learning experience and comes back hard against the Islanders this game can give some benefit.

This stretch of games has pretty much proven Mrazek is not ready. They were winning despite him. Looks like a rookie. Hopefully in the long run this struggle makes him stronger. Soft goals and when he is making a save the rebound always seems to be kicked out into a prime scoring spot.

Watching the game last night, it dawned on me Franzen has been gone for 5 or 6 games. It doesn't look like the Wings miss him too much.

 

I feel this team plays better without him. Laziness is a cancer that spreads easily. Best to cut it straight out.

He was great late in the game tonight. Because he’s clutch. 

 

Clutch isn't just making saves in the last 5 minutes. Clutch goaltenders make those important saves through the whole game. Mrazek is the future for the organization and I am excited about his potential but he looks like a rookie which is what he is. Hes not winning games for the wings and hes not losing him. Hes basically an average goaltender right now which ironically everyone accuses Howard of being. Since taking over for Howard hes only held a team below two goals once, has a gaa at 2.5 and a save% just over .900. Those are average numbers. If you look at his numbers in GR and the Wings this year it has been statistically his worst season as pro so far. Luckily the Wings offense has been on fire for him. Its basically the Gus effect last year. Gus was good but for some reason the Wings scored almost a goal a game more for him. Hes doing a great job of doing just enough to keep this role going but the Wings really need Howard back if they want to finish the season as a top 3 seed. You only have to look at how bad the PK has dropped off to see the difference between Howard and Mrazek in net right now.




#2566542 Larkin or Mantha?

You cannot compare the two right now. One is playing against boys in college and the other is playing professionally against grown men.

Seems like everyone is acting like the Wings got skunked 8-0. Yes the final was not flattering but it was padded with two EN goals. For 50 of the 60 minutes the Wings were the better team by quite a bit. The one reason they lost is because Miller played out of his mind last night. When one of the hottest goalies in the league has that performance you just have to tip your cap and move on. They played ok and far better than the Boston game.

 

I will agree that though that Franzen is lazy and he sucks.

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.




#2554250 Mantha getting closer.

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.
