I'm asking because it seems like teams are willing to spend upwards of $8,000,000 on a tandem, but it seems like it is always highly skewed towards a 'starter'.
Why aren't more teams willing to sign two goalies for ~$3,500,000 a piece?
To do that, you need two of the right $3.5M goalies in the right system, and have the lesser one play far better than he ever did earlier in his career. Blues did that, but it's not an easy thing to find.
I think it's easier when you do what Vancouver did, and what Nashville has done a few times. Have a starter worth paying, then have young talented goalies develop and challenge for the starter position. Add in a strong defensive system and you can contend for the Jennings trophy.
