My boy Donny! Extending Halak at just over $2 million for next year is an absolute steal. Halak probably could’ve gone out in free agency and gotten himself a fat contract for a starting job but he instead chose to stay in the city of champions. Awesome deal considering Tuukka Rask already is proven to need more rest in the regular season than most number 1 goalies in order to stay sharp for the postseason (not a bad thing, just reality). Not to mention Tuukka randomly brought up retirement a few weeks ago.
Great signing. I hope to god it doesn’t implicate that Krug wont be back next year, but we’ll have to wait and see. As for now, the Bruins keep their 1A/1B goalie tandem for another year.
