And that's about it.

I'm not a fan of his playoff work, though, and with young Mrazek pushing for a job in the next two years, I'm not in favor of locking up Howard for 5-6 years at $5M a pop.

I know that having a reasonable criticism of a player makes you a hater to some of you guys, but whatever. I call it like i see it
I agree. As much as I like Howard, I don't want to sign him for that much only to hear "you can't have a five million dollar goalie riding the bench," when the eventual goalie competition begins. Unfortunately, I don't have the answer because I'm not sure if Howard is willing to take less. Holland has got a mess on his hands with this team and all of the bad contracts he's given out.
