1. Howard was probably our MVP in two playoff runs, where do your stats show that? You cant just look at a player's status and automatically assume he's bad or good. Corey Crawford is also top 5 in wins, he's dramatically worse than Howard.
2. Ericsson is not overpaid. He improves the PK, helps stabalize 5 on 5 play. Thats all he's paid to do and he does it. There was a stat, as you like to use, that our PK dipped to below 75% while he was out last season.
3. Blashill is a good coach but is half way through his first pro season as a head coach. Let's see what he can do outside of 4 months.
No goalie is a championship goalie until they win it.
