Well, there are two answers. First, they are all significantly worse than our boy Jimmy Howard. Second, they all have more votes than Jimmy, at least according to Puck Daddy.
I don’t know if I believe it. I seriously doubt that more people have voted in Antti Niemi and Mike Smith than Jimmy Howard. Hell, I’m surprised Smith has gotten any votes playing in the abandoned cellar that is Phoenix.
As we’ve stated before, Howard’s an elite netminder. Winging It In Motown is running a Vote for Jimmah campaign to get Jimmy into the game or at least some recognition for his play so far. Our very own Josh Howard is the man behind these great posters.
If it is true that he’s behind all those plugs listed above, we Wings fans have to get out and give the kid some votes. He deserves it.
What makes me angry is you have to vote for Jimmy as a write in while James Reimer and Corey Crawford are clickable options
I may just be a biased fan here, but I have always felt the Red Wings as a whole never really got the attention they deserved. Datsyuk has only just recently garnered some attention and that was after years and years of world class play. I was happy to see NHL 12 actually give Jimmah a high rank this year (87). If Jimmy follows the pattern of Red Wings attention from the NHL, it's gonna be a few years and he is going to have win a Vezina to get on the list.
