Detroit – Jimmy Howard wants to keep playing. But the Detroit Red Wings' longtime goaltender is coming off his worst statistical season and is a 36-year-old unrestricted free agent. Howard would love to play one or two more seasons – and if it's not in Detroit, he'd be sad but also content. “I want to keep playing,” Howard told The Detroit News on Friday, while talking about the past and future of his hockey life. “This year left such a bitter taste in my mouth. I want to go out there and show people I can still play in this league – I know I'm capable.” Howard's preference would be to remain with the Wings and end his career with the organization that drafted him in the second round in 2003.
