Maybe in 1-2 years we have a franchise goalie in Stolarz. Or maybe not. Then we sign an aging (insert goalie here) for two years. Then another. Now we are in the same spot seven years down the road. No goalie. No Cup. But the contracts were better!!!! Unless there is a legitimate option to replace Bryz, it is not a wise move to buy him out.
Agree agree agree AGREE X10000. We've had the freakin stopgap since I first started watching hockey! Bryz has shown this season he can be dependable, but for God's sake if it isn't the starter it's the backup! Why did they make no effort to get a guy like Dan Ellis, he's filled in admirably for the Canes while Ward has faltered.
