I thought the numbers would be north of $4MM, if not $5MM, and a MUCH longer deal. Interesting strategy on both sides.
sweetheart deal for both sides and I think it was the correct strategy. Keep goaltending costs low so you have cap space to spend on supporting players. W/o good players in front your goalie will not be as effective. W/ better players in front a goalie is more likely to overperform. Wish we could've gotten a sweetheart deal like that and by sweetheart i mean a deal for $5mm not $6.75.
