Hey, he scored two goals that should impress Wings fans. He actually went to the net on one goal and actually scored on a breakaway on another. Two things most of our players don't seem capable of doing.
Goalies traded in 2015-16 (since end of last season):
rights to Niemi
Maybe four or five whose first names most of us would know. Not much received in exchange altho Lehner (with Legwand) yielded a first-rounder (!). Jones with a pick and a player yielded Lucic. Then Jones went for a first. Talbot yielded a second, third and seventh. Every other deal was who for who. So I stand corrected, there is some market for goalies. But I don't see Howard being of much interest to anyone. Even if we ate $3M per year, he has never won anything.
Yeah, points taken. I'm not saying we'd get a huge return or anything but there is definitely a market for goalies.. Also, I don't think the rest of the league thinks Howard is as bad as wings fans think; I could be wrong though I guess.
I did forget about his limited ntc though so that complicates things a little.. but I'd think he'll want to start somewhere rather than backup here. We'll see.
Sucks we called up XO and Nosek just to sit in the press box and ruin their Christmas plans. I'd love to see Nosek replace Andersson soon
Yeah. Blash probably just wanted them to practice with the wings since the ahl break from games is a little longer.. they'll get a Christmas break, just not as long of one. And I'm sure they're fine with it. Hopefully they learn a thing or two while they're here.
