Honestly I was expecting a $6M+ contract at 6-7 years. Getting 5,5 with only 4 years is a bit of a let down, although for that active time frame it's not bad. This contract is set to be followed by a dreadful one, which is the one thing I'd be concerned of if I were a NYR fan.
I agree. The rangers had some leverage and they didn’t use it. He’ll be 30 in the first year of his new deal, the rangers should be drafting/trading for young goalies with upside over the next 2 years. There’s no reason to extend him after this contract.
Yes. And i can say your expectations are certainly a bit high for me to muster, but I suppose you have the right.
They might seem high to you, but as someone whos followed his career for the better part of 7 years, hes legitimately elite right now and hes not even in his prime, hes got all the tools and all the talent
