How many times were they going to let Spezza slam his stick into Howard?

His point was: he hates Howard.

Get it now?

How did Rene Corbet not make the Avs roster?  I guess the Colorado organization and fans don't have fond memories of all the times he played the role of Red Wings punching bag.

Fourth line finally looks good? Change it. Second line is struggling because Richards is non existant? Demote Larkin.


Yeah, Richards kind of makes it seem like they should've just kept Stephen Weiss around.

Their wives are presumably happy because that's where they wanted live, and they're gazillionaires, and they get a longer summer holiday.  Sounds like a recipe for a good life to me.
 
Just because they're not winning hockey games doesn't mean that they're not winning everything else in life.


Happy wife, happy life.

Screw it, put him on waivers and hope he gets picked up. If not, send him to GR. Honestly, what would Holland get for him anyways.

 

No one will pick him up on waivers.  Sending him to Grand Rapids wouldn't accomplish anything - the majority of his contract would still count against the cap, and the salary of whoever replaces him would likely take up most of the small portion that could be saved.


 

Glad people are seeing that now. I'm tired of hearing "Howard deserves another chance" "He'll be better tonight i just know it", "We need Howard in case Mrazek falters". "Howard is a great goaltender". No. He is not needed, he will not turn it around, if Mrazek s***s the bed Howard isn't going to do any better. He's the Wings version of the Flyers' Bryzgalov contract. 


 

 Trade him to the goalie graveyard in Philly for Mason.


 

Yeah Mrazek never bails out the team at all. They should never have done that for him.

 

Of course, I didn't say that Mrazek never bails the team out or any of the other words you attempted to put in my mouth there.

 

On that subject, were these specific LGW posts that you are quoting above?  When did people say those things?  Who said them?

Howard is no insurance, period.  Get rid of him ASAP, bring Coreau up.  I've said it before and still believe that Coreau can come up and do just as well (or not well) as Jimmy and all at 5X lessor the money. Clear that cap now! Trade him for future's just to get some relief.

 

You may as well stop saying this unless and until Howard actually starts playing decently.  No one wants a goaltender who is playing terribly and is on an expensive long-term contract.

Well, Howard would have gotten the win if they'd scored 6 goals... like they did for Mrazek with the rotten egg he laid yesterday.

Nice awareness Glendening. You're clearly in the game for your defensive prowess.
