Then why is above average minor league goalie Mrazek not starting every game?
Same reason Anthony Mantha isn't on the Wings. It doesn't work that way.
I actually like Howard, he was great last year, but I don't care what Howard has done in the past because it doesn't translate into this year. We have lost every year he was in net in the playoffs, not entirely his fault but other goaltenders with less talent in front of them find a way to get it done (Rangers, Leafs, Nashville, Phoenix). We are better then all those teams the last couple years.
He just can't get it done, and I highly doubt we win a cup with him. He's getting paid as a top 10 goalie, yet his stats show he's a top 25 goalie.
