Bargain signing for the Jets, this is going to play out great from them down the road.
Just makes Matt Murray at 3.75 that much better. Not saying its a gross over payment but 6.1 for 1 solid season.... I guess we will wait and see.
This is a very POOR gamble from a risk / reward perspective.....
2016-17 SV% = 0.907 (below average)
2017-18 SV% = 0.924 (above average)
If they signed him to a 1 year contract & he had another Vezina quality year.....he'd would get around $7,000,000 x 6.
If they signed him to a 1 year contract & he had another below average year.....he'd would get around $3,000,000 x 3.
If they signed him to a 1 year contract & he had an extremely average year.....he'd would get around $4,000,000 x 4.
His current contract is a much bigger risk ($3,150,000 AAV) than a 1 year deal would have been ($800,000 AAV).
