Why would Snider care when there are another 8.5 years for it to even out? If Bryz is on the bench as the back-up the rest of the year, Snider isnt the only one concerned, and it isnt because of the 9.1 million more he makes this year.
Its because he wants to win the god damn Stanley Cup.
Bryz is the highest paid goalie in the league this season. Snider absolutely wants him to play like he's the highest paid goalie. He would care because what if it never does even out in those 8.5 years? What if the highest paid goalie in the league ends up being a back up? I still have a hard time believing that Bryz won't be playing for us in the playoffs this season because of his contract and what he was brought in here for. I believe Lavy's tactics of sitting him during the regular season are to get him focused for the playoffs. Sure Snider wants to win the cup, but no matter how badly he wants to win the cup, he still won't be happy paying Bryz $10 million if he's not the one who does it. That's $10 million he could have saved then.
