So I assume Jimmy Howard is no longer an NHL goalie.  Seems like the only reason for him not to be in the top 8.

Jimmy Howard isn’t on the list because he’s not very good.

Thanks Walt.  I was hoping for an idiotic reply like yours.

How does Howard stack up against those 8?

7 have more wins than Howard, though all but one of those has played more games than Howard

1 has a better GAA than Howard.

5 have a better SVPCT than Howard.

2 have more SO’s than Howard.

Yep…Howard apparently just isn’t very good.

Seriously, Jimmy Howard has played better than most of those goaltenders.  If Weekes is putting Smith on there based on how he has played this season as opposed to career numbers, Howard deserves to be top 5 on that list easily.

Take it easy Valek. I think Weekes would know a bit more than you about the position. He did PLAY IT FOR A FEW YEARS IN THE ACTUAL NHL.

Jesus. Touchy Wings fans.

Thanks for calling me on my crap Walt.  I was definitely just being touchy and completely made up stats.  Thanks for putting me in my place.

So well in fact that he quickly went to working for NHL Network!  Instead of actually, you know… still playing goal professionally somewhere…
