08:48 AM ET 03.15 | Jimmy Howard may be on the verge of a significant reward for his career record of 120-61-23 in Detroit. [The Red Wings] are making good progress in their effort to sign goaltender Jimmy Howard to a long-term contract extension. A source told MLive.com that the sides are inching closer to agreeing on a deal that would more than double Howard's current $2.25 million salary to the $5 million-a-year range. It is expected to be for at least six or seven years. Getting their workhorse goaltender signed was the Red Wings' top priority. Playing behind a defense that lost Nicklas Lidstrom and Brad Stuart in the offseason and has been riddled by injuries, Howard arguably has been the club's most valuable player.

I'd offer Howard to Buffalo for Miller. And a couple of others to try and get Vanek too.

Habs signed Desharnais to a 4 year extension. Not that it's huge news...but to me it's big because it shows a complete departure from the old way of thinking. it's the 1st time that I have ever seen the habs negociating an extension in season.I'm very pleased to see that our management has joined the 21st century.

Only One thing I want to know: Is Howard playing tonight? Or, is he still sick? That's all I want to know.

Abdelkader, Tatar, Filpulla. Along those lines.

So they think they're getting something.

It does tend to remove certain tensions that can arise doesn't it?
