Personally though, I'd do it as I think he's a solid goalie and he's young enough (28) to easily get 5+ more good years of performance from him. I also probably overvalue the Goalie position compared to some who want to get by with adequate goaltending but why not make that area strong if you can do it at a cheap enough cost.

Dubnyk/Halak imo would be a very solid duo for years to come... one less area to worry about.
I too was on that bandwagon. I would think MacT would go after him. he stated goaltending was a concern in his presser at year end.
