5. Jimmy Howard
– Howard had a bit of a down year but that still doesn’t take away from how good he is. Playing in only 51 games last season due to injuries he posted a 21-19-11 record with a 2.66 GAA and a .910 SV%. Those numbers are down from the previous season in which he posted a 2.13 GAA and a .923 SV%. If he stays healthy look for him to regain his form.
