Goalie Salaries. How much is Howard worth?

07 March 2013 - 01:11 AM

Jimmy Howard is an UFA this summer and if the Wings want to try and re-sign him, he is due for a huge salary increase from his $2.25M. Howard is currently the third lowest-paid goalie in the Western Conference (to LAK's Quick for 2013 and to PHX's Smith). Rinne is the highest paid NHL goaltender at a whopping $7M (bumped up from his previous $4M/year contract), and Holtby is the lowest paid NHL goaltender at an entry level $637K. 


Do you re-sign Howard?

If so, how much (though this may depend on length of years)?

Which starting goalies do you find overpaid?
