I don't know about blaming it but are saying her can't steal us a game (even though we didn't even score a goal)
Who is blaming this game on Howard?
I still laugh at the fact that people always point out Howard's contract. I'm sorry but in the NHL you get paid when your contract is up and around UFA time. Please name other goalies around the league that make less then him, have gone through UFA and haven't had a bad/terrible year in the past 3-4 years... There won't e many... Howard's numbers are close to top 10 in the league for his past 4 years
The goalies that are up there with him just have been paid yet (rask), had a bad year or so and got shipped to another team (Anderson) came out of the wood works out of no where (bobrosky). Yes is 5 million a hefty price to pay a goalie yes, but unless you want to deal with what Philly has been dealing with (and they still pay 5 million) I'm happy paying Howard what he deserves to make sure our goalie is solid for the next hand ful of years.
