Wow the guy literally carried them to make the playoffs and helped win the cup. Only 4.4mil 2 years....? Deserves at least 6 mil, the average elite goalie makes. 

Try some critical thinking and brain power. 

 

He has played a total of 1 season and came out of nowhere to have that streak of out standing play. What if it was a fluke? The d core around him? Luck? Other circumstances? You don't give a high dollar long term deal after 1 season of play. It's called a proving deal. Think of a one hit wonder in music/success discography in music. Works sort of the same.

If I was the GM of the Canucks and in this situation I would even care about the salary cap anymore. Demko would be like, “$10x8?” I’d be like “ya whatever”. 

The salary cap will balance itself

Cool if he is the real deal we can make him an offer in 2 years.

Questionable move by Binnington/his agent when he could’ve easily just cashed in. 

 

...doesn’t make sense. Didn’t take money and/or term when the ball was 100% in his court.

actually only played closer to a half season.. either way, not exactly 'proven' at this point..

but I agree it's the most sensible contract for both sides, given the circumstances

Ottawa's "Hamburgler" was the toast of the NHL several years ago and the Sabres just signed him to their AHL club in Rochester.  It doesn't take long for a goalie to come crashing down to earth.

 

Hopefully for Binnington's sake, he's actually good and wasn't just lucky this past season.

Not a bad deal considering goalies are weird and go on these runs where they look like prime Marty Brodeur only to come back down to earth after time. Take Matt Murray for example. To pay him 6+ Long term is a serious gamble that could haunt the Blues in the long run.

Yup, both working on it to succeed or fail.

I almost forgot how big the goalie equipment was before.

Not sure how smart a deal that is for St. Louis as Binnington will be a UFA in 2 years so if he's the real deal he can pick and choose his new destination with a nice bidding war for his services.  But then again if he's a one year wonder St. Louis covers their butt.  I don't know but I think he's the real deal.  

That’s why he only took 4.4 mil 

 

he’s worth 6 mil on the free agent market. He was the main reason that the Blues won the Stanley Cup. But as you said this also covers Blues’ ass-ets in case he’s a one year hit wonder

Smart deal for both sides probably. A good bridge deal to see if he's the real deal.
