It's not like the quality of shots a team gives up is going to even itself out over a full season. A team that doesn't play good defense, Columbus for example, is going to consistently give up high quality shots to other teams. I don't deny at all that goalies like Rinne, Quick, and Lundqvist are better than Howard at this point. I just think the team especially the defense gets way too much credit. I honestly think that our defense isn't much better, if at all, than average in the nhl. As I said in my original post I wouldn't trade Stamkos for Howard either.
