The majority of NYR players make much less money a year than Hankie.
Now when Hankie gets a raise from 6,875 to 8,5 per year, 7yrs contract, in the middle of his worst season, perhaps most guys on the NYR roster don't think it's worth a huge applaud that there is even more money spent on the Hank - everyone knows that you can win the Cup with an average or low salary goalie as well.
And since there is a salary cap, this raise does affect the total of what's left over for other positions.

Since Talbot is paid approx. the league minimum (also next year btw) - the difference between Hankie's and Talbot's paycheck is an absurd 12 times now and even more absurd 15 times next season - so no wonder if many NYR players consciously or unconsciously put some more effort into games when Talbot is in goal.
