$6mil/yr Benchwarmer?

The Wild coaching staff may think so...

Good decision IMO.

Keep the hot goalie playing. You have to earn to play a game at this point.

You can look at it like that, or you could say "1.5mil stud starting goaltender."

I don't care how much the guys make after the team is assembled, I only care about going with the hot hand.

I agree, go with the hot hand for sure... but if that $6mil was a skater, he'd be playing every day... much more effecient money that way is all. In the cap era you can't afford to have a $6mil bench regular.

Agreed.

If one goalie is on a streak, just keep him till he loses.

The Wild's 6 million dollar player has played 51% more than the nearest teammate. That's why they're usually still worth it.

Backs could use a break to regroup. No big deal.

Well let's see, he was lights out for about three weeks and let in a bad goal against the Islanders. Yeah, I'm sure he'll be fine.
