Can't Howard be complimented without any other player/goaltender being involved?
Honestly. Enjoy the ride Howard is giving us so far, because we don't know when it's going to end.
Exactly. I don't see why people need to A) Bash Osgood, or B) Bash Howard.
Why can't we all just be happy that we have a first year goalie exceeding every expectation, instead of trying to start a goalie war over a random quote.
And rebounds he could improve on, but making the first save is the most important thing a goalie can do. I could careless about rebounds if, at the end of the day, he wins. That's all that matters, rebound control will come with experience.
People are putting too much stock into rebounds, in interviews Lidstrom/Rafalski all are saying that Howard making the first save is all that matters and it's their job to protect the area in front.
