Kindl has looked great thus far, we just are getting tough bounces and having possession problems

Has Howard been getting most of the starts? Will Osgood get more? Wanting to know for fantasy hockey.

Howard good tonight? sry to bust ur bubble... but regardless if the wings have knocked it in their own net... that puck was moving so slowly anyone could stop it... and that 4th goal... comes WAY out to 'track' the puck was utter crap... why didnt he just stay in his crease... im sure if he did it still would be 3-1.

This is a game that could have been theirs if they showed some guts and determination.

Getting outshot and outplayed, down 2-1, the way to come out in the second is not being outshot 6-0.
Howards done ok, not great. He competes hard, but I maintain he has a weak 5 hole, and a weak glove hand. He is certainly not going to be the next Ryan Miller like some sad gdt article suggests.

bad break on the first goal. then the other 2 were brutal give aways. I am not use to seein the Wings look like this they are not the better team out there.
Main reason how many injuries can a team absorb and still compete?

Ok. Those home losses without goals were bad. This is code red. Defcon 1. Duck and cover!

Management has to act. Either the plan is to contend, and that must be done by making the team win games, any measures apply. If it don't, might as well play prospects. The classic formula, nothing wrong with it. After two wins, the team can't muster another. Playoffs running away from us rapidly. We're.. the Florida Panthers.

i dont blame howard for the first goal. you cant expect the puck to come at you from your own defenceman

Their is alot to goaltender you don't quite understand. Howie has already had a few spectacular saves and hasn't let in anything that should have been saved. The Datsyuk one was questionable but that shouldn't have been on net in the first place. You can't except someone using all their force to fly to the other side of the net to just change directions on the fly and save that. He is more worried about being square to the shooter because he isn't expecting Datsyuk to do that, nor should he.

Or they can stick with their "patience" formula that has led to Red Wings success for over 20 years and 4 championships.

The one thing fans of any sport lacks is patience. It drives me crazy. (not directed at anyone in particular)

Howard's been great recently, I'm not saying he's Ryan Miller, but he's shown stretches of good play, followed by some bad games. He's a ROOKIE GOLATENDER, I think this season he's proved a lot of people wrong so far.

It's too bad this team is getting dominated by a pathetic, depleted squad.

I mean there is NO WAY, NOW WAY they could possibly come back... That's never happened before, so the games over....(hoping the jinx will work BTW).

Yes, but......ugh. You have eyes, they are connected to your brain, which is in turn linked to your entire body....read and react, it is the basic function of the goaltender. Basic positioning can only get you so far if you have the reaction of a 3 toed sloth. If you want to discuss the Datsyuk own goal, reread this paragraph.

You guys are ridiculous. Just yesterday I was reading how people trusted Howard with ~40 starts and now he should go back to the AHL

The day I say something good about Howard will be the day I lose a testicle.

It's as much about the skaters too. A team should be able to win in spite of shoddy goaltending (we've done it before). If neither GK or skaters are up to task, measures have to be taken. No offense to the Oilers, but they're in our building, we've rested, they're injured as crazy.. and they still smoking us. Unacceptable. (In case oilers fans read this, i expect you lot to feel the same would it reversed)

I was the one saying Howard could handle 35-40 starts and I stick with my claim.

This team is sad, it's hardly because of Howard. Imagine where we'd be with Ozzy starting like 23 games?

And.... I am the one who coined "35 hole", and I stand by that, too.
