That's a really cool bit of trivia. I'd like every one of them to retire a cap.

You sure? I can't find any mention (or pictures) of it.

Seriously though, he is their best shutdown Dman, and he's getting paid less than Erskine. He's worth more than the market would ever give him, it's not all that outrageous for him to hope the Caps remember that when his next contract comes around and he does have some leverage.
It's a good marketing opportunity for someone. Getting your money's worth (or more). Solid, dependable, coach can rest easy when Alzner is on the ice. He's a good property.
