He needs to agree to becoming more consistent.

$4.5m over 2 years ($2.25m per year).
Not bad!

Not a bad price for Howard. A steal if he wins the Cup this season.

I think this will help his play, too, having that worry off his mind.

It's actually a fair deal for both sides. At $2.75 (the early rumor) Howard would've won. $2 million or lower, it would've been Holland's win.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

I was hoping for something around $1.8MM to $2.0MM, but I guess its ok. Doesn't seem like any sort of hometown discount applied since I doubt he gets more than $2.25MM in the open market.

He would have easily made this on the open market, if not substantially more considering how young he still is.

MLive reports 2 years, 4.5million total

Happy we resigned him, I think he has a bright future. Just hope he gets more consistent.

I think this is a really good deal overall for both sides, and potentially a steal for Holland if he wins the cup this year like others have said. I take this over some piddly deadline deal myself.

Niemi got 2 mil from SJ but his award in arbitration with Chicago was 2.75 million.

Halak got 3.75 mil a year for 4 years from St. Louis as a free agent.

At this point I think 2.25 million is a good deal for Howard. He was second in voting for the Calder so that certainly would have factored in the negotiations (assuming his agent isn't terrible).

Given that Howard was going to be a restricted free-agent this summer I think the arbitration award Niemi got would have been the comparable Holland was thinking about if they ended up going to arbitration with Howard.

So basically our cap just got 1.53 million dollars smaller next season...

This could either be a massive steal if Howard gets better or a decent deal if Howard stays pat.

Strange they didn't wait till after the playoffs but hey, it's a good deal. Atta boy Holland.
