Five million dollars for a goalie who can't steal a game? Please.

Lol troll. Also for everyone who says Howard was only good because of the teams we had in the past. Do you guys realize as of yesterday his gaa was the exact same for this season as his career gaa.

Maybe just maybe he made our d and teams look good? Considering its agreeable our team blows this year.

Term sucks

Caphit sucks

I love his attitude - like mentioned before - and I know, GMs have to overpay for future offers but Howard just isn't a 6 year 31,8 m type of goalie. Thats close to Luongo money in terms of caphit and that guy has won a gold medal, also for a few bucks more you are reaching elite league at this pricetag.

In other news - congrats to James T Howard, you;ve deserved this.

Actually, it's James R, but if you're making a Star Trek reference, I love you even more than I did five minutes ago.

I joined this forum when people were down on Nik (hence my name) and I said he's prove himself to us. I'm glad I did, because in '08 people were pretty high on him. People supporting Howard and his contract will find themselves rewarded in the same manner soon. <---yeah, I'm calling it now.

I love Howie, but maybe he should have given a discount since he can't win shootouts.

I forgot who first coined the James Tiberius Howard, but dammit it's such a great name!

And I'm glad you already love me ;)

You guys need to be more positive

Remember that not everyone likes watching low scoring, one goal loses every night. Some people actually prefer offense.

If Jimmy had half the 08 team in front of him he would win the Vezina. I am happy for him. Ozzy used to get 18-20 shots a night with the best D in the league in front of him and he is considered a God around here. Jimmy is the only reason we are still in the playoff hunt at all.

I dunno about God...maybe Apostle Peter.

We just can't score. Jimmy was never the problem. It's Cleary and Franzen

Give me a break, dude. The guy has only five points in his past four seasons. He's got to produce more at what we're paying him!

Ding ding ding. Howard is a workhorse and a good goalie. We lack 2 good snipers to put between Nyquist.

Z-Dats-Franzen

?-Nyquist-?

Filppula-Helm-Andersson

Abdkader-Emdog-Tatar

Ryan and Horton at the ?s and this team might win. Clearly and Brunner, and we are going to suffer.

Yeah true. He's always floating around the crease, never able to stay on his feet and never uses his size. F******* awful. I mean the guy is 6'0. Never seen him at the offense either. Worst 2-Way player I've ever saw. Should have traded him for a 7th-Round pick. Holland is the worst GM in the league.

Did I forget anything ? :D

Yep. He's got hands of stone and he's a slow skater.

Let's have Howard make one cup run before we start throwing Osgood under the bus.

Fine with this as long as we don't pay Flip.



Jimmy has been our MVP the last 3 years

2nd behind Datsyuk tbh. Maybe Lidstrom in there as well if you count former Wings

Though you may have believed on stint of Mrazek's one good game in the NHL, and his temporarily hot run in the AHL, that he was going to take the NHL by storm, that notion no doubt seemed more than a tad premature to the front office.

Or mostly everyone. He still has a ways to go.

A little late, but I am damn glad we've got Howard buttoned down. You know what I want out of a goalie? Consistency. And I believe Howard is consistent. Sure, he has a bad game every now and then, but all goalies do. What he doesn't do is go all bipolar like Fleury, and I appreciate the heck out of that. Nor does he have self-confidence issues like Luongo; when he plays bad, he accepts it, gets over it, and bounces back. Another thing unlike Luongo: he flips the switch in the playoffs, even when the rest of the team forgets to. And come on, if he can play decently in front of THIS defense, he'll be just fine in front of a real one. Rask's contract is up this year, and Lundqvist's is up next year. Obviously they're going to re-sign with the same teams, but I wonder what you'll all say when you see how much THEY get.
