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
Yeah, realistically, at most this contract is a half million dollars on the high side. Dubnyk has lots of positive arrows these past two seasons, and he is technically quite sound. He hasn't had a tremendous defense playing in front of him, and it's not easy for a goalie to look good on a bad team, yet Dubnyk has done an admirable job of it.
