In my ideal world, they can get Howard on a reasonable contract (assuming his numbers don't dramatically improve) and run a tandem with a 50/30 split to games. That should have both guys in game shape, but also rested for playoffs.

Then play the hot hand in the playoffs.

Everybody talks about Vancouver's goaltending "problem" but it's an amazing problem to have. Granted they'll have to move one for cap space next season, but for the time being, they are sitting pretty with two legitimate options. We haven't had that in Detroit since Osgood/Hasek, so it would be nice to get that rolling again.
