What a joke that Colorado is winning this game right now.

Datsyuk scored again? I caught a glimpse of him celebrating. Glad it wasn't a replay.

People come out of the woodwork with petty excuses and stipulations whenever any record is broken. 

 

Remember the Wings' home win streak from, what was it, 2012?  It seemed like new people appeared with new reasons why they didn't break the record or weren't going to or whatever with each passing day.




#2650501 Players Tribune: John Scott A Guy Like me

Posted by barabbas16 on 29 January 2016 - 05:57 PM

The thing is though....he calls himself in the group of one of the 700 best players in the world....I don't really agree with that.  There are many, many, many players better than him at hockey outside of the NHL, he's there for a very specific reason, not because he's one of the best 700.


I didn't read the whole article, but the quote above said "among the 700 or so best hockey players in North American professional sports."... not "one of the best 700 players in the world."

Read the article that was posted earlier and translate it. He isn't close to Mrazek as he was before because Mrazek took this spot. Boohoo

It sounds like you may be reading into it something that's not there.  First, it's Mrazek speaking, not Howard, correct?  I don't believe that one can actually speak for the other. 

 

I could speculate that maybe Mrazek feels different about the relationship himself and has just projected those feelings on Howard....or perhaps Mrazek has rubbed it in Howard's face that he stole his job and that's why it's different now..... Of course, it doesn't say actually say any of that. 

 

Neither does it say "Howard is sulking" and "Boohoo".

Rough translation is rough:

 

Četl jsem, že už teď s Howardem nejste takoví přátelé.
    Je to tak. Protože každý chce chytat. Když jsme se pravidelně střídali, bylo to mezi námi jiné. 

 

I read that now Howard're such good friends.
    
It is so. Because everyone wants to catch. When we regularly changed, we were between us different.

 

(this is not a response to you particularly)

 

It is clearly a much different split between the two than it was earlier in the season.  Mrazek is obviously the #1 at present and Howard is just as obviously operating as the backup.  Did anyone think that Howard would be thrilled about this development?  Should he be?  Would you be A-ok with it if you lost your starting position?

 

I would see it as more of a negative about Howard if he weren't upset.  If Mrazek was just saying 'things are different now' and 'we're not quite as much buddies', etc;, I'd think that's just par for the course.  It's not like Howard is trashing Mrazek to the media or putting fire ants in Mrazek's pants or something.

Figure out how to put the puck in the net more often.

Imagine how much this season would suck if Dylan Larkin hadn't made the roster.

Of course the worst hands on the team get a breakaway

I'm not, I don't know what's worse. The game or this 16 year old commentating next to me.


Is he trying to be a Play-by-play guy? Maybe you could entertain yourself by playing Mickey to his Ken...

Sweet GDT. Mrazek gets the fresh game of a b2b finally.


That happened in the last back-to-back. Mrazek started on 12/10 and Howard started on 12/11. It also happened the time before that... Mrazek started on 11/20 and Howard started on 11/21.

Also, Jurco is staring to gain some confidence and had a great game last night. I really hope Blash keeps that line together for another few games. I also wouldn't mind Sheahan being bumped up to Datsyuk's wing with Richards, Helm down on the 4th with Glendening and Andersson and stick Nosek between Tatar and Jurco. It'd be cool to see what a line of the two Slovak's and a Czech, aka Tomas, Tomas and Tomas could do...


I surely hope you pronounced that in your head as 'Tomosh, Tomosh, and Tomosh.'

No win or points. But, on the bright side, still a huge positive result for the Howard hate brigade.
