Aside from the NTC issue, 1.25M is not nearly enough cap relief for the Bruins to consider it. Thomas is a much better goalie right now and doesn't have any of the off ice issues of Khabibulin.
If Khabibulin's hit was around 2.5M, and/or his contract was shorter than Thomas' I'd be much more inclined to consider it 'fair value'.
But it's not really 1.25. It's 3.75 because they each have 3 years. And, more importantly, Khabi's salary can be bought out, sent to the AHL, sent to the KHL or he can retire and have it wiped clean.
Because of Thomas' 35+ clause I make this deal. If Rask is who we think he is the back up goalie spot won't be that important.
