Because Osgood wasn't the team's best player in the 2009 playoffs or anything, or an All-Star and Vezina contender in 2008.

Howard is currently fifth in ES sv%. He has played very well most of this year.

In contrast, Jonas Gustavsson has been the worst player on the team - when in the lineup. He's faced an average of about 23 shots per game, and his GAA is near 3. I don't exaggerate when I say that, in my opinion, he's the worst goaltender the Wings have had on their regular roster since at least Kevin Hodson. And probably further than that; he has worse numbers than Hodson in an era more favorable to goalie stats, and he has faced fewer shots per game than Hodson did.
