Let’s see if Jimbo can off load Holtby in the off season for a cheaper back up 

That would be pretty helpful. Maybe some team is willing to take a chance on Holtby for a year. I think he’d be better on a more structured team.

I'm fine with him playing out the final year, next year. Maybe see if there's interest next TDL.

 

Far too much being made of his contract IMO.

The Vancouver Canucks have signed goaltender Thatcher Demko to a five-year, $25 million extension

Rick Dhaliwal: Hearing that Demko doesn’t have any no-trade protection in any of the five years.

Puck Pedia: Salary breakdown.

2021-22: $2.5 million base salary
2022-23: $3.5 million base salary, $1 million signing bonus
2023-24: $6 million base salary, $1 million signing bonus
2024-25: $6 million base salary
2025-26: $5 million base salary

Irfaan Gaffar: “That’s a great deal for Demko. Next orders of business should be Green/Clarke, Pettersson/Hughes in that order.”

Thomas Drance: “I’m a bit surprised that the sides opted to go long here. Thatcher Demko will carry the 13th highest cap hit among NHL goaltenders next season. He’s going to have to be an elite performer to provide surplus value on this deal.”

Iain MacIntyre: “Both term and salary for Thatcher Demko, 5×5 according to @FriedgeHNIC, fall between bridge deal and full-term contract for core player. But Canucks are obviously betting 25yo 1st-year starter is the real deal.”

Ian MacIntyre: “With money Canucks are investing in Thatcher Demko, who is still developing, and critical importance of goaltending, it’s vital that asst coach Ian Clark be re-signed. For proverbial drop in budget bucket, it would be reckless to let Clark get away after this season.”

Farhan Lalji: “5×5 is a big number for Demko after one elite month. JB buying high as most of us were expecting 3-4 years at 3.5-4m per. A great deal for him & if he can sustain this play it will look great for #Canucks in years 3-5. Just entering his prime. Now need to get his coaches signed”

5m is right where he needs to be.

 

Look at goalies that make 5m

 

Andersson 

Rinne 

Varlamov 

Lehner

 

Andy is going to get more as a FA this year.

 

Also I think varlom9v is a product of trotz and his system in NYI.

A couple pundits commenting on the importance of getting Clark signed. I think Demko is worth it, but it now makes Holtby over paid. I doubt Holtby is at risk in the ED. I’d like to see what Clark can do with DiPietro as a backup.

Suprise, surprise... Drance is being a myopic dunce again.

Not like cap inflation is something to factor in at all...no, surely not. Then his narrative might fall apart and we can't have that!

$5 in 5 sounds great. Demko theoretically gets another contract at 30 that should bump him if he plays well. By that time the Canucks will know. The downside for Demko was the threat of NHL teams who want 2 tenders sharing games more evenly. It is seem as a way to cut out big contracts. It reduces team risk. Look at Vegas and Lehner. I am sure there are other examples. 

 

Cup teams are built from the net out so a big signing IMHO. Fans should remember the positive vibes here just in case Demko doesn't work out. Right now JB is a god.

Or that some of those other goalies are on ELC's or are lesser goalies on lower dollar vet contracts, lower dollar, shorter term bridge contracts etc.

yeah. Not sure why he rushes to fill the void with bs but it seems to be his thing now.

 

And why does he need to provide "surplus value"? how about just value? 

 

Grubauer will get more $ probably. Hart would have before he fell off a cliff this year.

We also overpaid Markstrom on the 2 year pact he signed while still playing in Utica before he was even a backup?

 

Then his 3 year deal.  As he was not a bona fide starter.  

 

Paid on potential, as will be Thatcher.  Who is already closer to it...

Great deal to lock up a core player for 5 yrs and only 25 yrs old -- We have a top 10 goalie just need to keep core...

Petey - Hughes-- Horvat - Demko --Boeser  - Miller -- Podkolzin - Rathbone  -- Hoglander

My thought was Demko to sign a bridge deal would be 4-4.5 X 3 years. 4 - 4.5 million is pretty standard mid level starter goalie contract. To have 5 X 5 is an excellent deal. Demko is trending upwards and is already outplaying some of the guys that are getting paid 6 - 7 plus million, plus factoring in the potential and the AGE, which is the key. Demko isn't even knocking on the door on the prime, he's got his foot on the porch. Gonna be a great 5 years...perhaps a vezina in one of them?
