goalies Mrazek and Howard have played in three preseason games each. Howard: 2.00 GAA and .943 SV%; Mrazek: 2.38 GAA and .929 SV%
Just read this, I'm sure some of you have as well. Just thought it was interesting.
For the record, I'm a fan of both, but really like Howard, and feel kind of bad for him last year, so I'm hoping he can still hopefully pull it out, and extend his career.
I think you would have to look at the competition as well meaning that some teams like we did ran all rookie kids on some games and some had a lineup like Chicago did with a big part of their main roster rolling. So not sure if its worth breaking that down but I would be curious to see which goalie played against which players for those nights.
That was just off the top of my head. The main point is that a top four defenseman, even a stay at home guy on an expiring contract, always has value to a team wanting to make s push. Look at Jeff Petry a year ago.
Anyway, I'm not going to say anything more about Byfuglien. I've beat that horse to death. I think it makes sense for both teams, and it would be easy to do without losing anything we couldn't live with/don't need to lose anyway.
I have always wanted Byfuglien so I approve of that one for sure.
