He didn't get beat by just any rookie goalie, he got beat out mahf***in' Petr Mrazek. In all seriousness, the best way to go is to allow Howard to get a significant number of starts then trade him at the deadline. Of course, his ntc complicates things, but I'm sure he'd waive it for a chance to be a starter again.

If he doesn't do well in those starts, it's a problem.  I'm thrilled with the way Mrazek has played so far, but when you see what's happened to guys like Hammond and Darling, I'm not going to anoint him to the Hall of Fame just yet.

I hope Holland at least entertains the idea of trading Howard to upgrade the D. There's a part of me that definitely thinks it'd be good to have both next year as I still expect Mrazek to go through some growing pains now and again. But Howard is the best asset we've had since Flip that we can now likely afford to give up, and we really, really need to upgrade our D. In my mind, he's got to at least try.

 

And hell, at this point, I wouldn't be shocked if Howard requested a trade. He's not going to want to be the backup on a team at this point in his career. He's 31; he doesn't have that many years left of his prime.

So,  Howard couldn't beat out a rookie goalie, is over 30 and has a big contract for another 5 years.  You're thinking he's a huge asset to acquire a top 4 defenseman?  I guess I'm missing something.

1.  Stamkos doesn't suck. He's not having a good series.  It happens to most every player.

 

2.  I don't have any problem with Garrison.  I'd take him in a second, along with Stamkos.

 

3.  Johnson is a good player who had an incredible game to lead his team to a win.  How is that "sucking up"?

Tampa came out flying?  That's a bit of an overstatement.  The Wings were a little sloppy, but the Bolts were hardly flying.

Well, guys, another season in the books.  Won the first game, lost the next four, done in 5, just like last year.  Too bad Tampa had all that momentum and everyone on the Wings sucks.
