Don't get me wrong I love Crow and will always greatly appreciate what he did for us during the past season but I have a terrible feeling about this.
Lets face it Crow is a solid goalie (capable of stellar play and capable of not so stellar play) but our defense made Emery look stellar as well. If this deal spells the end of Hammer we lose a key piece of our defense and that in turn hurts Crow.
I'm hoping the FO knows the cap is going to jump a lot because if not I really dislike this move, we have already shown this team can win a Cup with Niemi and now Crawford, the common theme was the team in front of them, investing big money in the goalie and potentially weakening the forwards/defense isn't a strategy I'm confident in.
With Hammer, Toews, and Kane all on the horizon for UFA not to mention Shaw, Saad, and Leddy as RFA I really hope Stan knows what he's doing giving Crow 6 mil per.
