Count me among those who feel the Red Wings would be wise to cover their tracks at goalie. It’s been a couple years since Ty Conklin has played well, and he has precious little playoff experience. Joey MacDonald is fine in a pinch, but he is the goaltending/hockey version of a 4-A player in baseball.

Sure, Jimmy Howard is the Red Wings goalie. He’s earned that. Also, count me among those who feel he is capable to backstopping the Red Wings to a Stanley Cup championship this spring.
