If your primary focus is going for it THIS year...then Crawford has to be your man. I think Howard is the better goalie long term, but I forsee quite a speedbump for Detriot over the next season or two as they wait for Smith to develop and hope to keep Kronwall and White...and likely add another significant Defender.
I trust Crawford about as far as I can throw him, but you can't deny the stellar 2 way talent infront of him. Crawford will finish leaps and bounds ahead of Howard this year.
