Howard only hs one above average season to his credit, and it was two years ago. Neuvirth has had just as much success, and he's had it more recently.

To say that Detroit's goaltending situation was any better than the Caps, let alone by a substantial margin, is simply not true. And you're telling me to get a clue. Awesome. Always good for a laugh Jester
Easily?

Neuvirth was marginally better. He played less games, had less wins, etc. He doesn't have a single season anywhere near as good as the one Howard posted two years ago... of course, Howard has played 126 games to Neuvirth's 65 the last two years. This is without getting into the fact that Neuvirth was shredded by TB.

Detroit's goaltending situation was ABSOLUTELY better than Washington's heading into the offseason.

So, yeah, get a clue...

Did Howard have a fantastic year? No. Do you really think Detroit is jumping ship on him?
