wow just look at howard movement last PK.
He is an AHL goalie nothing more
While I agree he looked bad on the 3rd goal, he is a rookie NHL goaltender. How about they protect him a little bit? Why are the Oilers passing through the slot with such ease? Get the puck out, clear the rebounds, make Howard make the first save and build his confidence.
Howard may look like an AHL goalie right now, but they are playing like an AHL team in front of him!
waiving Rafalski might do good but not during the season.
we can't get anyone with all the cap space unless we trade for one.
we waive him after season is over than we can sign someone with the cap space
That $6M that Rafalski makes is real money. And Illitch is a real businessman. Hes not going to pay a guy $6M to do play in the minors.
At best, maybe we can hope that Holland grows a mean streak and actually talks to Rafalski about waving his NTC and submitting a list of teams he'd accept a trade to. But I doubt it.
