Red Wings vs. Flames: Jimmy Howard gets betrayed by his defenseman

New, comment

The next six years are going to be rough.

Stephen Dunn

Jimmy Howard recently signed a six-year contract extension to stay in Detroit. Which begs the question ...

WHY?

I ask that question because his teammates clearly don't like him. Consider this treachery from Jonathan Ericsson.

Yes, it was awful. Especially considering the Red Wings are in a battle for their playoff lives at the moment, this goal is particularly egregious. Good thing this doesn't happen very often. I bet this is an isolated case. He never would've signed that contract if something exactly like this had happened a few weeks ago.

Wait ...

OH MY GOD, JIMMY HOWARD IS DOOMED.

UPDATE: Jimmy Howard tried to do it himself this time.
