Goaltending Next Season

01/02/2019 at 10:03am EST

Brian Costello of The Hockey News takes a look at the goale situation for next year in the NHL.

On the Wings and Jimmy Howard...

Detroit Red Wings: Jimmy Howard is a pending UFA and will be 35. Jonathan Bernier is on the books at $3 million for a couple more years. So a mid-priced 1A is in order, perhaps Howard again.

Jimmy Howard: Still capable and not ancient at 35. Doubtful any team sees him as more than a 1B so he’s probably in Ryan Miller territory of 30 or so quality starts.

more teams, more goalies...

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
