Just now, Tom Sestito said:

There's no precedent for a goalie with less than 100 games played getting much more than that. 


Binnington has a career save percentage similar to Demko's and if you added his 4.4x2 and the first three years of his 6x6, you get 26.8 over 5 years.


Demko gets a slight discount for not being bridged and for the security.


It's pretty much exactly where I think everyone expected the contract to be so there shouldn't be much of the whole "take that JB HATEORZ" when there's no precedent for goalies getting much more or much less.



I agree that there’s a bit of risk involved, especially considering he’s a goalie. But I feel like this is a tiny gamble that could have a potentially huge payout. Time will tell I suppose. All Demmer has done for the last year is improve so I’m hopeful.
