no, it doesn't work like that when i access why a goal is scored.
i only go by the "on the ice" aspect. i don't say "it's ok for a low paid goalie to let that it, but not a highly paid goalie"
because hes getting paid to be the no. 1 goalie. He is expected to make a save when asked to. Its just like with Danny Briere. Hes getting paid 6 money but this year hes playing like a 4th line winger. Neither is good enough.
So yes the cap hit on any position on the team does matter. You are getting paid to do a job. Is everything Bryzgalov's fault this year? nope. But hes been part of the problem this year looking at the big picture. I am not going to get into certain parts of the season where he was really good and others when he hasn't been.
Like many players on this team he hasn't played good enough.
