Howie is looking really good. Even playing the puck pretty well!

How is that any different than you claiming they play better without Howard in goal?

Well I guess the intent of it is different.

When I was saying they appear to play better when he isn't playing, it wasn't that they try to play differently, it's just something that happens as an unintended result.

Whereas it sound like Yzerfan was saying it was a conscious decision to play differently

Which actually shows they're less confident with Monster. They expect Howard to make the save, so they play less defensively. When Monster or Petr are in net, they tighten up and clear rebounds faster so the teams don't get as many good chances.

I really don't think the team goes out every night Howie is playing and says "f*** it, lets just slack off a bit defensively because our regular is in net"

You think the team feels more confident with Monster in net? Sure looks like it.

It does always seem like the team plays differently (better?) when it's someone other that Howard in net.
