King Henrik didn't have success? This guy is more often than not the only reason the NewYorkRangers are even in the mix for the playoffs. An annually Vezina nominee, the best goaltender in the world by far and probably the most beloved player they have letting him go was never an option. Thanks to the stupid CBA GMs can't get creative with contracts anymore because they are all under a regime if they don't follow suit = losing a draft pick in the first round.
8,5 per year is a lot but the king certainly deserves it.
30-37 career playoff record and does not look like the kind of goalie that could take a team on his back through the SCP. Except for an Olympic gold medal, what has he really done in the post season, when it really counts?
