Maybe I misunderstood you here, but are you saying Holmstrom doesn't take abuse or get penalized for his net front play?

If so, I have to disagree completely.

If anyone understands EXACTLY what you guys are frustrated with its Wings fans, only in the rarest of circumstances does a penalty get called for the abuse Homer takes in front of the net. Its so bad that he wears extra padding on his back and shoulders to protect from defenders stickwork.

Hornqvist plays a similar game and is likely to face a lot of the same treatment, just wait until goals start getting called back because the opposing goalie complains, or when he gets a penalty for interference for being thrown onto a goalie by a defender.

Holmstrom likely has had more goalie interference penalties and been responsible for more called back goals than anyone in the history of the game.

This is one thing that both the Wings and Predators have in common.
