Whew was wondering if they were getting a goalie for next season lol

Empty net for them! It could go either way they score a lot of goals or they don't

And why didn't we sign him instead and save a few bucks?? 

 Halak is  4 years younger

 Halak has been more consistent, with only one sub .900sv%, Anderson has had 4

 Halak has played more games recently with 19 last year, while Anderson played 4

Because Anderson isn't what we need. He's worse than Holtby and he's older than Halak

We are so tight with the cap and could've grabbed a veteran for $1M... Halak will likely make $3M after easy bonuses...

 

I really hope JB will find us a good piece for bottom 6 so we'll be pretty much all set!

We have a lot of cap space right now. Halak is making only 1.5m this season. Anderson sucks and old. The bonuses will be paid next year if he makes them. This is a steal. 

 

We're already set for the bottom 6. We're good

I didn't mean like I really want Anderson but og well, let's hope Halak will do a better job than Holtby. 

 

I feel that JB isn't done... He'll try to find a big body or a Russian player to round out this roster

15 games of Craig Anderson could make or break our season. 

 

As other posters have commented... Halak is a much better option.

 

Anderson is washed up and is nowhere near Halak anymore.

Wow. You really gotta love the game or need the cash to sign for 750k in buffalo. 

 

Gonna be a miserable year for Anderson, but I suppose after some of those ottawa years it might be like reminiscing about the good ol days.

Are Buffalo and Arizona even going to try this year? 

Or is it just straight up tanking for 1st overall from the get go?

It's a race to the bottom.   Lol.

 

With supposed franchise center Shane Wright next year, it's hard to pass that up.  And then the next year are 2 supposed generational talents.  So no real desire to improve a bottom feeding team just yet.
