The pickins must be awful slim for him to make that roster.

Its great for him! Maybe this will help with his confidence going forward. I am a little surprised given his injury and his play so far this year. Maybe our d just sucks after all.....

The D HAS been terrible all year. Howard hasn't been stellar but every goalie has an off stretch.

It's Wyshynski quoting St. James, so I'm taking it with a grain of salt.

 

I don't think Howard played as badly as some around here, but if he is selected it sure wasn't based on this season's play.  Honestly I'd just as soon he's home getting a break and they send someone who played well this season like Bishop to be the third goaltender.

Good going, Jimmy!  Maybe this will give him a shot of confidence and a little swagger.

Congrats Jimmy..cool honor whether he plays a game or not it will be a great experience.

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 !!

Extremely surprising but let's hope he lives up to it tonight!

Great for Howie, maybe this will give him the confidence he needs to get his season on track and out of the slump. 

 

On a side note I'm rather shocked Howard gets the invite over Ben Bishop.

Reputation pick. Howard has been average this year but has the ability to play much higher. I agree that this may take some pressure off of him and he can start playing like an underdog trying to earn his way up the pecking order.


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

I doubt the third string goalies are going to see a lot of ice time, sure it's nice to be nominated but if nothing dramatically happens it's going to be Quick > Miller > Howard. None the less this is a very good group to have.

Miller has actually been outstanding on a putrid team. Having a save percentage near .930 and a GAA of less than 3 on a team that gives up 75 shots a game is a minor miracle. He also almost carried them to gold in 2010. I will be stunned if he is not the starter considering how mediocre and injured Quick has been. Add me to the surprised that Howie made it camp but kudos nonetheless.

Kind of the best of both worlds- he gets the honour and experience, but he probably won't be playing in games.  He'll keep in shape practice-wise, but hopefully won't get injured. (knocking wood as I speak)

Miller has been sensational this year, .930 on the worst team in the NHL is nothing to sneeze at

I just can't stand Miller because he's such a whiner.
