So today’s announcement of Neuvirth’s contract extension has a lot of amateur capologists and armchair GMs scratching their heads and wondering why the Capitals are paying their “backup” goalie more than they’re paying their No. 1 guy.
Philadelphia went through all sorts of roster gyrations to get Ilya Bryzgalov signed to a mammoth nine-year contract two summers ago. The Flyers moved centers Mike Richards and Jeff Carter off their roster to clear the cap space needed to sign Bryzgalov to a contract that now looks like a certain amnesty buyout candidate this summer.
Somehow I don't buy what he's selling.
PS: It's ok if PHO will bite.
