Jimmy Howard: Canucks have 'got a bunch of idiots'

After Friday’s practice, Red Wing goalie Jimmy Howard was asked if he saw what Burrows did after he scored against him.

“I don’t even pay attention," Howard said of the Canucks. "They’ve got a bunch of idiots over there. There are only several good guys on that team, and they know who they are.”

Howard was matter-of-fact with his comments and said that he didn’t care if he was quoted.

*full article below*

Angry much? I think the Wings/Nucks may be the best rivalry this year going forward.

He's just bitter that his team lost along with his winning streak at home ending. Nothing new. Now it would be interesting if bieksa heard about it, since he'll probably say something funny.

He may well be bitter but there's hundreds of thousands of times where players are bitter after a loss and don't respond with name calling.

Either Howard hasn't learned professional etiquette or the Nucks are under their skin (either being pests or for whatever reason)

I wonder if Howard is bright enough to realize he essentially just called the guy who got the winning goal and broke the streak an idiot - and is now crying more than a little girl who just dropped her cotton candy in a puddle of pony piss.

You lost Jimmy. Fair and square. Grow the **** up.

Jimmy Howard is right, and I hope the Canucks pick up a couple more before Tuesday for the next time we play them.

Canucks should just go ahead and change their logo for the stretch and playoffs:

Haha. Howard and Bolland should host a radio-show together.

I wonder what he's so mad about. Can't recall anything specific from our games with the Wings in the last few seasons where anything crazy happened.

I'm sure you can find "idiots" on every team, and if Howard can't spot the idiot on the Red Wings, it's probably him.

I'm sure losing the game that snapped the home winning streak left a sour taste in Howard's mouth, especially since he was given back his starting job despite MacDonald playing great in his absence (not saying MacDonald > Howard, but sometimes you gotta play the hot hand).

The only thing I get from this is the day after being beaten the canucks are still in his head.

I also always find it funny when people/players make comments on how several canuck players are such terrible people yet the team is tops in the league for charitable contributions. It's almost like what a guy is like on the ice is not what he's like off the ice.

I think he's also still bitter about how hansen supposedly "ran him over" on the shorthanded goal about a month or two ago, or so. Keep whining you ****ing whimp.

Memo to Jimmy Howard:

These idiots just broke your precious win streak and have now passed you for first place over-all in the Western Conference AND the NHL standings.

Cry me a river, Jimmy.

Howard should get a call from management. Detroit is an organization full of class and he's not representing that very well.

Jimmy Howard is the rich kid of starting goaltenders. He was brought up in the lap of luxury (the Wings, obviously not the motor city), and now when things don't work out for him, he gets all pouty.

Someone sticks a Mic in front of his face a few minutes after the Wings blow two leads and their hyped home streak, no big deal.

It was a day later after Friday's practice.
