I think that's where this frustration is coming from. i know he makes a lot (they all do). especially for us. but he is the best goalie we've had since late 80's hextall, right? like almost 25 years? so we paid for him. and he's an enormous part of our team. that's why i don't care. i hated going through a goalie a season. and i think were getting our money's worth. he plays every game for christ's sake. and we are still a sloppy team. i watched a blues game the other night. that was some disciplined robotic ****. were young and inconsistent. that's the big factor to me.

Hitch doesn't mess around.
