[Re-Signing] Howard re-ups with Detroit

16 posts in this topic

Hmmm. Both him and Luongo getting paid the same, almost identical playoff stats:

Howard

SV% .915 GAA 2.63

SV% .916 GAA 2.53

Took them a while to finally make it official.

I think he's getting paid too much, but it's better than trying to find someone else. Solidifies their goaltending while they still have their vets.

5.3 cap hit for a six-year deal is not equal to a 5.3 cap hit for a 12-year deal. Big difference, I would say. And if that number is right, it suggests the goalie market has dropped, which isn't good for Lu.

I personally think he's getting paid too much. He's thriving under the a Detroit system, which a lot of goalies can look good under.

"On Tuesday, the Detroit Red Wings announced theyre-signed G Jimmy Howard to a six-year deal, one that will keep Howard in the WINDY CITY until 2019"

Thats funny. I was unaware Detroit was located in Chicago. The Detroit red wings of Chicago?

Updated the OP as it does appear it's a 6 year, $31.8M deal. $5.3M cap hit as rumoured.

If Luongo retires before his contract ends, we're going to be hit with the 'Luongo Rule' clause from the new CBA. We'd be screwed.
