My opinion is that Howard is too immature to be playing pro.
Last year, he gave up 3 quick goals then skated off claiming loss of vision. Seems like everytim he's on a losing streak he claims injury or sickness. Now he say he has the flu after at least 2 bad games. On Feb. 7th I read where the flu season was winding down.
Maybe he is sick but lets see what happens if he continues to give up goals..
