Will A Team Take A Shot And Trade For Jimmy Howard?

from Scott Burnside of The Athletic,

It seems clear that if Holland is going to move Howard it will not be a fire sale even if the Wings, as expected, drop out of the playoff hunt in the coming days.

“The last one-and-a-half seasons he’s been really good,” former NHLer and longtime analyst Ray Ferraro said. “I thought he was going to fade away but it seems like this is too long to be a blip.”

Would he take a chance on Howard as a trade deadline rental? For sure. As for moving forward, Ferraro said he’d be more interested in a two-year deal in the offseason as opposed to a three-year pact....

In a perfect world, the Red Wings maximize their return on a Howard trade and then re-sign him in the offseason, (Darren) Eliot added.

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.
