According to Kevin Allen of USAToday's twitter:

Detroit's Jimmy Howard declines USA's invitation to play at the World Championships because of nagging injury issue.

Ericsson is going. Maybe Kronwall, if he'll get cleared by Detroit medichal team i believe. Lidström, Holmström, Zetterberg declined. Franzen, nobody knows :).

I guess this would help explain his struggles in games 1,2 and 3.

Being a goalie in Detroit has to be one of the worst jobs in sports.

Calder trophy nomination season top 5 SV%/GAA, 30 wins, a game 7 road win and a .915 SV% in the playoffs and he gets called a sieve.

He's faced the most shots and has the most saves out any other goalie in the playoffs, he didn't cost the Wings a damn thing.

For once, I agree with Carman.

Howard did let in a couple of bad goals during both series but for the majority of the time he kept the team in the game when the defense was getting turned around. I, just like everyone, wanted to see the Wings go deep into the playoffs, but you just had a feeling this wasn't their year. Howard got some valuable experience and will be ready for next season, a season in which there will probably be a few major changes.

Cheap as dirt, excellent stats, and still crapped on.

Let's walk through the regular season numbers.

Brodeur: 45 wins, paid 5.2 million. $115,555 per win.
Nabokov: 44 wins, paid 6.0 million. $136,363 per win.
Bryzgalov: 42 wins, paid 4.25 million. $101,190 per win.

Howard: 37 wins, paid 750 thousand. $20,270 per win.

Top ten in wins, a fifth the price. He's earned some serious respect.

Exactly, unless people want to get rid of Zetterberg to get an "elite" goalie that could still just fall apart (Luongo, Theodore etc.), I'm completely content with having Howard make the first save, he kept the Wings close and we couldn't bail him out.

Absolutely true. He let in a few soft/untimely goals but overall was very good.

I could count on 1 hand how many bad goals Howard gave up in the Sharks series. Most goals he allowed was 5 on 3 and 5 on 4 goals. Can't blame Howard because his team couldn't stay out of the box.

mindfly hasn't had a chance to hate him yet. Being that he sucks, it would make being a wings "fan" that much better for him.

Excellent information! I agree whole heartedly that Howard deserves way more respect than he has been given by many of the posters to this forum! The safe assumption is that Howard has learned a tremendous amount during his first NHL playoff experience. And with that experience should come an increase in confidence, and a goalie to build and reshape this team with. He's earned the starting position next season, and it will be up to someone else to perform and knock him out of it. Good Luck to them. GO WINGS!
