The team in front of Howard is better than the one in front of Quick
Ya the team that was easily eliminated in the 1st round and then lost the 2nd best defender of all time while making no major splashes in the FA market is better than pretty much the exact same lineup that won the Stanley Cup. The Kings then outshoot Detroit 47-31 on the road. Are you really and idiot or do you just purposely say idiotic things.
As soon as Gustavsson is back from injury Mrazek will be back down in the minors if not sooner. And thats where he should be getting starters minutes not backup minutes in Detroit. This is Howards team. That article lost all its credibility once it said that Howard has been average this year.
The guy doesnt thing he has to be accountable for any of his actions. I love how he said it was his decision to leave hockey. It was every other GM's decision when they didn't want this piece of trash on there team.
The only thing I find redeeming about this guy is his support for equality among orientation in the major sports.
Franzen needs to be a man and go after him and drop the gloves. None of this childish spearing crap. But then again what do you expect from one of the softest "power forwards" to play. The guy is the king of the after whistle scrum.
I think in the back of Babcocks mind he isn't expecting to get much of a result tonight anyways even if he started Jimmy. Why not throw Mrazek in and see if it gives the team a little spark. I like the move. If he gets shelled against the best team in the conference it wont hurt his confidence as much as if he would have gotten shelled against a lower team.
Personally I don't like to see it, having growth up in a city where stars like Steve Yzerman, Barry Sanders, Lidstrom, etc. would score and go about their business. However, at the end of the day I don't think it's that big of a deal. I'm sort of in the "if you don't like it don't do it" camp. Also, I'd never teach kids to do this either. But good on him for getting excited and having a hell of a beginning to his career.
Edit: Additionally, I have a feeling he'll pay for that one the next time he plays the Kings.
I guess Stevie didnt celebrate on his doublt ot goal in St Louis?? Whether someone celebrates or is low key its all the same. The line is when your taunting your opponents and he didnt cross it. Its ok in the sport to punch people in the face but not celebrate a goal? I loved the reaction and personally would love to see it more in the league. As long as your not running around pointing your stick at opponents its great.
