I generally like this contract. He's going to be Carolina's starter. Still can't believe Carolina chose to trade Ned though... what a disaster

They gave Andersen 1m more than their Calder finalist goalie, despite Andersen not having a starting caliber-season in 2 years. What in god's name is this?

From a budding goalie and Mrazek to Andersen and Ranta. Sorry Canes. But you went backwards here.

So let me get this straight; they didn't want to give Nedeljkovic 3.5M AAV yet they decided to give 4.5M AAV to Andersen...

Bahahhahhah why would you get rid of nedeljkovic for Andersen?!

Less money. Younger. Better. Actually played as a starting goaltender in 2021.

Freddy and Raanta are good goalies but if Nedel ends up being a stud for less money than Andersen Waddell's fired at the end of next season.

Whatever TML fans say, he's a legit No 1 and their best option (taking out Grubaeur).

Good signing. That 3rd year would had hurt.

A small question to those which vote for yes: HOW do you guys can think this is a good sign, when Carolina traded their good young goalie (which signed for just 3M) for almost nothing to sign an inconsistent goalie, like Andersen, for 4.5M??? It makes NO SENSE AT ALL.

Nice to see Carolina finally signing the goalie they drafted in 2010 to his entry-level contract!

Jeez why couldn't we just pay Ned and Mrazek less. They're better anyways. I guess Andersen was better than nothing at this point already giving up our two good goalies.

Andersen hasn't been good the last week seasons. I'm glad the Leafs dodged this contract.

Ironic that he signs as a UFA with Carolina, after being drafted by them and refusing to sign with them.
not worth the cap hit though- Carolina took a big step backwards in the goalie position, and losing Bean hurts.

Take the emotions out of it.

Of course, it would've been better to sign Ned but that's done now. Given that has already happened, signing a 31 y/o Andersen to a $4.5m x 2 is pretty good.
