Holy Moly, What’s Up With All the Goalies?


With three stoppers re-signing with their teams in the matter of a couple of hours, the Great Goaltending Carousel of 2020 has at least become a little less crowded. Less confusing? Not a chance. That particular ride might be the one with the most ups-and-downs and twists-and-turns at the amusement part at the moment.

The dominos are indeed falling, but they’re also going off in a bunch of different directions. At least the Philadelphia Flyers have their goaltending figured out for next season, with Brian Elliott signing a one-year extension worth $2 million. But the other two signings on Saturday – Robin Lehner with the Vegas Golden Knights at $5 million a year for five years and Tristan Jarry with the Pittsburgh Penguins for three years with an annual cap hit of $3.5 million – have done a huge part in throwing the goaltending situations of a few teams in disarray.
