    34 year old pending UFA with respectable career goaltending stats of GAA: 2.50 SV% 0.915

    What would it cost to get him to Calgary? Smith would need to be going back for cap reasons if we're assuming Detroit is not on his 8 team no trade list. He is also a pending UFA.

    Smith + Lazar + 2019 4th(NY Islanders)?

    Smith + Pollock(22 year old C, RFA next year) + 2020 3rd?


    Calgary just keeps kicking that goaltending can a little further down the road. Not the best strategy but it seems one they've committed to until one of Gillies/Parsons/Rittich are ready.

    Rumor is that Detroit doesn’t plan on trading Howard and he will be extended. This offer does nothing for the Wings

    Detroit's pretty much gonna want draft picks for their guys, and Calgary likely aint gonna gives those up considering they've done so far too often the last few years.

    Just bad trade partners.

    Nope by all accounts, It sounds like Detroit will keep Howard. And resign him to a short term deal here in the next few months or so.

    At this point Howard looks so much better than smith, but I’d still like to see Calgary try Rittich as the starter.

    I don't think either of these deals make sense for either team.

    Hmm, that seems surprising considering the Bernier signing. But I guess that's Holland's MO. Wonder if Howard wants to go to a more competitive team as his career winds down or if he's happy enough to stay in Detroit.

    Why? Calgary would definitely like an upgrade on their 1G. Good chance they give Smith some time to rebound but if he doesn't or only gets marginally better(hard to be much worse) there's little chance they're comfortable with the tandem they have now going into spring. Detroit is just entering a rebuild, might as well stock up on prospects and picks for the aging assets they do have. Not going to get a ton for a 34 year old G who is a pending UFA. B level prospect and a mid round pick isn't nothing :dunno: they don't seem to have a whole lot of center prospects with NHL upside either.

    Talk is that Howard loves Detroit and wants to stay, His kids were born there like Yzerman's. Talk is that our goalie prospects are still years away. But i would still much rather go younger next season. Maybe Robin Lehner there should be some good young goalies available next summer. Just not sure on Jimmy.

    I get that Howard is much older than Mrazek and UFA... But he's also a much better goalie. It'd be more than that.

    I love Jimmy and yes he's done great things for this team and he'll always be a DRW to me.

    That being said, is almost rather picking off someone from the Juniors and giving them a shot

    Howard would be a great option.

    If that's the case why not do it now?

    I'd love to trade Jimmy for picks and see how he performs on a decent team but it sounds like Holland is planning on him being our anchor in net during the rebuild.

    Those are reasonable offers but just yesterday Mlive posted an article saying the wings would like to resign him. My interpretation of this is that they would prefer to go with the goalie they like than add a 4th round pick and an unknown goalie.

    Couldn't we acquire him as a rental and Howard waltzes back to Detroit in FA?

    That happened many years ago with Keith Tkachuk, so it's not unheard of.

    If Howard isn't an option, how about Bernier?

    a couple of 2nd round picks for Howard seems like a Treliving move.

    I feel like Bernier would be worth looking at, depending on the cost of course
