No but very short-leash and if its even just to light a fire under them, there is nothing to lose.
A short leash from his left ankle tied to the crossbar. Lately I get nervous when he leaves the crease to play the puck. While the Calgary game was the worst I've seen by far, he sure made it far too easy for Getzlaff to score the second goal last night. Brunner made the initial mistake by turning it over but Howard seemed a little slow in deciding to leave the crease and try to knock the puck away from Getzlaff. I voted no to pulling Howard but his decision making playing the puck worries me.
