Halak takes less term to stay on the Bruins. Nice signing by them.

Alright everyone losing their mind. He's a backup. Sure, he's a good backup, but He's 35+ and was a TERRIBLE Starter for over a decade. Yes, it's a good signing. It's not Hasek playing for BOS. It's spelled Halak.

He gets an extra $1.25 million if he plays in 10 ten games, so there's a pretty good chance it'll actually be $3.5 million.

Well, exactly. $2,25M is so good for one of the best backup in the league. Nobody said he's Hasek

I mean the guy took less than what he could get on the open market and Boston got a an amazing deal for Halak. Since 2018-2019 season:

GA: 5th
SV%: 6th
SO: 6th

eh I don't think he does much better than 3.5 on the open market.
He's 35, Probably not getting term anywhere at that age. You consider the cost and the pain in the butt to up and move....it's about right.

This is an awesome signing; it's a low cap hit given how well Halak has done, and it being only one year means there is minimal risk if he falters. Thank you, Jaroslav!

He probably could get a 2 year deal from several clubs. Remember that McIlhinney got 2 years from Tampa last offseason.

Do people realize that he makes 3.5 if he plays only ten games? I feel like the Bruins could've gone cheaper here.

A Lada is cheaper than a Chevy but it ain't better...
Solid signing and DS has managed the payroll pretty well to this point...

The worst part is, these guys asked me about MacDermids value on a Pens post and I can't even tell them how many 1st round picks it would take frown

The Bruins are an aging but excellent team, and the last few seasons having a tandem has really helped them a lot. A one year deal on a guy who has consistently been one of the better backup/1A goalies seems like a great bet. The performance bonus allows them to push that part of the cap hit to another year if needed.

Overally Halak is a 35+ goalie, and he will almost certainly make $3.5M in total against the cap, so I don't think it's an insane steal. Maybe he could have gotten 2 years or maybe pushed it to $4M, but overally I think he took a bit of a gamble on trying to win it with a great team, and that team figured out a way to keep him while paying him relatively fairly, so it seems like a great deal no matter how you slice it.

Boston has some contracts that have aged insanely well that allows them to overspend a little in goal, and given the age of this team, I think a tandem is a great way to capitalize on their current roster. There will almost certainly be several teams next year that have less money committed in goal and will probably get better overall performance, but two good goalies just makes it less likely that a rough year from a goaltender is what sinks them, and when a team's core is getting a little older, you really don't want to write off seasons because of a rough year in goal.

Overall, I think the AAV is fine, performance bonus helps, term is ideal.
