Alot of money for an average goalie  :glare:

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

I'm almost positive he's being sarcastic to this ridiculous thread we had earlier this season....

lol, ya, well so many people here preach about how great carey price is, and how much they would rather him than jimmy, for all of those people here are some numbers to chew on;

 

                     2011-2012                                       

 

Carey Price: gaa: 2.43 sv% .916, gp 65, wins 26

 

Jimmy Howard: 2.13 sv% .920, gp 57, wins 35

 

 

                    2012-2013                                      

 

Carey Price: gaa: 2.50 sv% .908, gp 34, wins 19

 

Jimmy Howard: 2.31 sv% .920, gp 36, wins 17

 

 

                      Career  

 

Carey Price: gaa: 2.55 sv% .915, gp 305, wins 143

 

Jimmy Howard: 2.39 sv% .917, gp 228, wins 127

 

 

 

since Carey is "Elite", does that make jimmy "super elite"?

Our goalie does have some problems with math..

"It's an exciting time for myself and my family and we're excited to be here for four more years," Howard said before boarding the Red Wings plane for Wednesday night's game in Calgary.

I've ragged on Jimmy every now and then because he isn't the best in the league but when he plays well, he is definitely a top 5 goaltender. I think the money is right for the current market and as long as he can continue to improve on his consistency (maybe if we get a solid healthy backup) I think this deal will be good for the Wings. Hopefully the last 2 years or so of the contract, he can split duties with Mrazek kind of like Hasek and Ozzie or Ozzie and Howie a few years back.

Too much when you factor in the reduction in salary cap.

I'm assuming the cap will increase along with revenue, just not as quickly as it did in the past...

Assuming capgeek has it correct at 5.3 every year, I'm surprised Holland didn't keep it low for a season or two then bring it up so he could give himself a little more breathing room as the cap goes down next season.

Jimmy never has been respected by the NHL for his performances..

 

over $5 mill seems to be overpaid, but he already played some great games and hadn´t reached his primetime.

 

$ 4 mill would be ok, but you won´t let him go for just $1 mill as somebody mentioned on twitter..

 

the deal is OK, not good...but not bad.

His Calder nomination and the the fact that he started in the 2012 all-star game say otherwise.

If Mrazek emerges as a starter, great. Then we rotate Howard and Mrazek. Problem solved. Six years from now, even if Howard slips to average, it'll be the going rate for average anyway.

I love this contract. It really doesn't seem like an overpayment to me. Jimmy has carried this team in like 25% of the games this season. I think he'd be doing even better if we had a strong backup so that he wasn't so overplayed.
