The fact is, we gave a slight overpayment to a guy who, other than the odd weak goal, has been very good for us throughout a few years of pretty terrible rosters. He now has 2 years to prove himself. By that point, Roy and Bunz should be ready and we'll have a good idea of where we stand. It's not like if he can take the next step his salary will double. He's probably looking at about a million dollar raise max
I understand that and I'm glad you do too... my question was directed at the people that are complaining about this deal... again, we all knew our goaltending situation wasn't going to change this year so why the fuss over Dubnyk's salary over a short term deal?
