Three reasons signing Jimmy Howard to a contract extension, essentially making him their goalie of the future, was a wise move by the Red Wings:

1. Howard won 37 games for an injury-depleted team in 2009-10 as a rookie, keeping the Red Wings’ playoff streak alive, and has 31 victories already this season.

2. Howard proven he can overcome adversity by bouncing back from bad games or after allowing soft goals within games.

3. At $2.25 million per year, his salary fits perfectly during the NHL’s salary cap era.
