I still like this guy and I still believe he can be a good number 1 goalie. It's not like he's had a lot of help...we're pretty bad on defense and he hasn't bailed us out, standing on his head like he did last year. I don't think you can expect that every night, (and IF that was the case, he'd be looking at $4M-$5M per year over a minimum of 3 years) I think he can be a bit better but our D also has to get better as well.

I think a 1 or 2 year extension at $2M per year sounds about right and won't break the bank. The Avs NEED to bring in someone who can shoulder the load though...whether that's Calvin Pickard or a solid, experienced guy. I really believe that's a necessity to push Anderson. The Budaj experiment is over.
