Gustavsson - no starts, 68 minutes played

Colaiacovo - 1 1/2 game played

Sammuelson - 3 games played

Number of people shocked by those numbers (besides Holland): 0

Really knocked it out of the park this summer, didnt ya Kenny.

yeah, kinda seems like we shouldn’t have waived Macdonald after all. how does he manage to re-aggravate the groin NOT playing? you’d think he’d have plenty of time to stretch before practice.

REALLY hope the Wings draft 2-3 goalies per year the next couple years.They need 2 viable call ups in GR each year. This is crazy. They’re going to be signing a back up to replace gustavsson at this rate.

Maybe Monster’s injury is not bad and will only miss this game… So they figured Pter Griffin can play this afternoon for GR and McCollum can open the bench door and keep track of some stats on the clipboard in Motown… I see no problem here.

yeah, I’m not really sure what your issue with this is. why are you so concerned with who’s riding the pine behind Jimmy? seeing that this just happened recently, we know exactly what’s going on. Mrazek’s the number one goalie in GR and they’d rather he actually play there rather than sit in Detroit. When Jimmy needs a break, like last time, they can call up Mrazek and throw him in if they really don’t want to play McCollum. In the meantime, McCollum only goes in if there’s an injury which of course, we’re kind of screwed anyway in that case, so whatever. Definitely seems to be the same logic they used a few weeks back. No biggie (unless your McCollum of course… the writings on the wall for him sadly)

Jobu doesn’t seem to have their address this year.  Toews could fall into a dumpster of broken glass and come out unscathed at this point.

Gustavsson looked like crap anyway.

How do you figure that?  In the game he replaced Howard, he played better than Howard did and allowed only a fluky goal off of Andersson until OT.  In the opener against St. Louis he also outplayed Howard.

I don’t think Gustavsson is a world beater, by any means, but he’s far from “looked like crap”.

Enjoy Gustavsson, guys!  At least for you, he’s backing up Howard, not Vezina Toskala.
