Nope he's not not, he's a level below Howard, and even if he was on par he's still making 700k more than Howard, they both signed their extensions this year.

Howard has had 3 .920 SV% years in the past 4, Crawford has only had 1 and that was this year. Even in their sophomore slump years Howard still posted the better numbers.

Regardless it's still a ton of money for a guy who's not yet proven he is in the top tier of goaltenders. He should be making 4-5M otherwise let him walk after this year.
