    Howard vs Mrazek is the matchup you can't miss if you like seeing a bunch of goals scored

    Blashill likes how dense Hicketts is. He's like a human cube. Unsure how this translates to hockey success, however.

    I think as the team has fallen off over the last few years they have done a good job of updating their philosophy to align with their status of a rebuilder. For better or worse, the one thing they haven't evolved/changed on is their love of guys that make "safe plays." I think Hicketts provides them with a guy who doesn't make many high risk plays compared to Sulak or Hronek for example.

    I'm not necessarily advocating for this decision making; just sharing my perceptions on what is driving the decision making.

    I might be in the minority but I still would rather have Mrazek over Howard. At least he is still young. Howard is injury prone and old....

    There are plenty of young and terrible goaltenders in the world.

    Helm on line 1 and Hronek sitting... sounds about right.

    Yes. And old injury prone ones as well. That being said I think Mrazek although very inconsistent at his best has/had more potential at their ceilings. But to be honest I rather have neither going forward lol.

    Hicketts literally has zero reason to be playing over Hronek

    The 12 man on the ice strategy, I like it. Doubles their chances of winning!

    He's Lebda 2.0. Serviceable bottom pairing guy, but on a team full of serviceable bottom pairing guys he just not worth talking about.

    Blash just calling AA "doubles" now.

    He really reminds me of some of the hockey dads when I was younger playing in the Mitt.

    Don't get me wrong, im not fighting for his playing time or anything. I just don't think its fair for him being the spacegoat. I like his energy and passion.
