I see no problem with Howard starting tonight. If hes up in the bigs and we are conditioning him to be our next starter why not give him a game? Mac is only on the roster in case of emergency where Hasek or Osgood cant play. Noone expected that both of them would be hurt at the same time and now that it happened the Wings had to bring up two inexperienced goalies, why not let the one with the most potential and being bred as the next big thing get a shot at showing how he has come along?

And I will say it now, I like Jimmy and want to see him play no matter the circumstance

According to Bruce McLeod of the Macomb Daily, it's MacDonald starting tonight. (via RWC)

Both of those reports about who was starting came from the Detroit News. Early they said it was Howard (and markov would be back) but later updated to say that McDonald would start (and no Markov). Perhaps they just assumed it was going to be Howard, but someone with Wings could have changed their mind.

I wonder if the Dallas trade for Nagy had any impact on this. Maybe they want to give McDonald more playtime for the scouts. With the trade talks heating up, there is only so much time to showcase players. Yeah, McDonald isn't worth much on the market, but he could always be included as a minor part in a package. Howard is much less likely to be traded, so showcasing him isn't as important.

If I wanted to play Joey in one game this season, I'd play him against the Flyers, +/- masters of the world-- Peter Forsberg leads in that category with a plus-one rating.

It's misleading. The Flyers are playing much stronger hockey now. It won't be a cakewalk, and the goalie DEFINITELY needs to be on his heels. Expect no blowout.

That means Howard is the the Forsberg trade.

Lang then gets flipped to the Rangers for Montoya.
