yes he's obviously our guy however I would love to know the Wings plans overall when it comes to goaltending....
jimmy is here for another 4 years, will mrazek be his backup for that amount of time? seems odd for such a young tender to play 20 games per year.
or do they trade jimmy and ride an inexperienced goalie with an experienced back up?
or do they trade mrazek since I'm sure he could net a good return?
Mrazek is not getting traded. If anyone goes, it'll be Howard in the next couple years if Mrazek proves capable of becoming the starter. And even that has more to do with cap implications than anything and the fact the Howard would be our best trade asset we've had in awhile.
But for now, come on, yes, absolutely Howard is our playoff goalie. He still has something to prove in the playoffs for sure, but it's kneejerk as ever to think he's not capable of rising to the challenge this year.
