Its just one year, and its less than his current rate substantially. Compared to the goaltending they have been getting, its almost a non issue anyways. Philly needed to do this or they'd look incredibly stupid for forking over what they did for him. He is a guy thats still capable of starting almost nightly because of his relative health and youth still, as long as you aren't too concerned with immediate dividends in terms of Wins and Losses.
1.5 for a guy you can throw out they each night is nothing to sneeze at, financially, at least.
I expect he will be unspectacular at best next season and he will not be resigned and will likely begin the "journeyman" part of his career very early.
Flyers lead here 3-1 late 2nd. I think we can all agree Steve Mason is the goalie of the future. Buh-bye, Bryz.

Sarcasm I assume, but as I typed this, Rangers score to close within 3-2.
