If we traded Howard, here is a list of UFA goaltenders that could come in and be the backup: (I erased some of starters & 3rd/4th string guys)




Viktor Fasth

Karri Ramo

Michal Neuvirth

Josh Harding

Jonas Gustavsson

Peter Budaj

Jhonas Enroth

Thomas Greiss

Ray Emery

Dan Ellis

Jason LaBarbera

Curtis McElhinney

Richard Bachman

Scott Clemmensen

Cam Talbot

Anders Lindback

these 3 stand out as the perfect backup because they can also take the starting roll very well too if need be especially EMERY

Thornton > Zetterberg at center. I'd take him. Let Z play winger and have a less stressful season from here on out so he can last the whole season + playoffs. 


Again, wishful thinking.. 

im behind you kickazz I think Jumbo Joe could fill in that role very nicly that shot on the PP? HOLY s*** not to mention keeping z and d together as for D I really wouldn't be against going for Ehrnhoff again if he wouldn't mind a comfortable longer deal with us

There are always decent backups on the UFA market every year. Trade howard in a package for help - could be a 2C or preferably a top 4 D. SJS, WPG, PHI, NYI all need an upgrade at G...

Like a jumbo Joe and Mark Edward Vlasic? package in Howard Weiss and a 2nd than maybe id be all for ditching him

Trade Howard for some help on D. Overpay Niemi to be Mrazek's veteran back-up, on a two year deal.

Or keep Howard and Mrazek. And split starts.

I'd be OK with either option.

idf****** love Niemi but I don't know if he would want a backup roll

I think we would be better off trading Howard for a veteran goalie to mentor Mrazek during the regular season.

who do you have in mind?

actually I might get flamed to my eyeballs for this but id see a more likely movement of Nyquist and Jurco before howard especially since Mrazek still needs room to grow I truly believe petr the great is just that but I cant see Howard being thrown away just yet remember wings almost did that with cujo when they got my guy hasek back but he went down for the year and we got lucky so cant really play Russian roulette with goalies
