Howard = Average

I hope he goes elsewhere if he gets more money. If we are going to pay 5 mil for a goalie, we are not going to be able to afford an upgrade at #1 D and #1 Sniper. We need those desperately.

It depends how much Howard wants. With the way he's been playing as of late I'd let him walk unless he wanted less than $3 million per year.

That sounds about right.

While I hope he doesn't top $5M per...I definitely don't see him at less than $3M. That is just poop talk. If he gets $3.5M - $4M that would be great, because if Holland does the right thing and buys out Bert and Sammy, trades Q there is plenty of cap room to re-sign Brunner, Smith, Lashoff, Filppula and Andersson along with courting a Sniper for $7M+ and another D-Man (Douglas Murray) for $4M+...

Even if Howard got $4.5M that would all still work.

Well you'd obviously pull Legace out of whatever deep, dark hole he's in and plop him back in goal. Duh! :yahoo:

NORM!!! YES! tumblr_m5thv0ADsn1rvmgpoo1_400.jpg

:lol: Is that the Big Boss Man in goalie gear? What's Time Cheveldae up to these days. Or Bob Essensa? wonder if Hasek still wants one more crack at the NHL.

Wait a second....wasn't Ken Holland a goalie? I'm sure Kenny could sign this Ken Holland guy pretty cheap.

Hell, I will play cheap! I helped my team win the championship in the Summer last year in our intermediate league. So far this season we have only lost 2 games. :D

I'm a pretty good 2-way centre that can bulge the twine like nobody's business. I could help keep the puck out of the net. I'm leaving to go play hockey in exactly 22 minutes as well, so i'll be warmed up.

Only had 1 fwd and 1 D spare today...played 50+ out of 60 mins and had 4 goals and 2 assists in an 8-4 win. I wouldn't let ya down big guy.

Howard gets the nod tonight and hopefully he doesn't have any issues with the eyes today. If we want to go anywhere this year we need Howie to play his biggest games against the not so good teams that the boys generally play levels down to.

I was only lazy when i took a nasty shot off my hammy on one leg and was nursing a sore groin on the other side around Xmas time. other than that I hustle my bag off, and I truly hope I don't suck. If anyone's ever in Winnipeg, we'll go 1 on 1 Gordon Bombay vs Iceland coach style :cool:

Yea, Howards not the guy. I'm sure the next time he stand on his head in 10 games or so everyone will love posting in this thread singing his praise but he is so average it hurts.

Very Cujo-esque at the end there from Howard. Need a sliding stop, but we get a flopping goalie looking like he's auditioning for Electric Boogaloo 7. How many games do you have to see of this before you just want another guy in there? I'm ok with Mrazek starting every game from now on. I'm not saying the Wings can't win with Howard. I'm not saying Howard is bad. I'm saying that the chances of winning more games does not go up because Howard is in there. Play someone else, already.

Howard is average he gets paid as a average goalie, i never expected greatness, but some big saves would be nice.

On a side note hes a UFA next season maybe he wants to play elsewhere.

howards stats would be average for a 5th seed playoff team in the 1980s. you know when scoring was astronomically high.

Id take Vincent Riendo at this point!
