Firstly, the rumours were generated by a puck bunny site. They also say that Lids beats his wife and Homer is *** and his family is a cover-up. They're vicious *******. Might there be truth behind some of the rumours on that site? Sure, it's possible, but until I see proof, the source alone is enough for me to give the player the benefit of the doubt.
Secondly, Ozzie needed to be starting here and there a month or two ago. Yes, ride the hot goalie and give Howard the lion's share of the starts (and this is coming from a die-hard Ozzie fan who just loves him to death), but Howie (or any goalie) needs a mental and physical rest on occasion and Ozzie needs to keep in the groove. I doubt that Howard will fail, but there is always the possibility of illness/injury keeping a player out for any length of time from a day to a season. We've sure seen that this year.
