    I'll wait to see the numbers but I'm not sure how I feel about this

    Figure he'll be better in front of a much better D, at least

    I agree. If Rask got sidelined for an extended period of time would feel a lot more comfortable with Halas then AK as Halak has handled heavy workloads in the recent past.

    And Montreal’s 3rd.

    Welcome aboard Jaroslav. I’m going to reserve judgement until I see your current form, but hoping for the best.

    Halak has been pretty good in the past. Hopefully he can get back to that . I tend to think there is a lot of room to improve over what Dobby has brought the team

    Zane unfortunately did nothing last year to indicate he was NHL ready. Basically losing the job in Providence to someone from outside the org is a bad year

    Well lets start by saying that the Islanders were the worst team in the league for SF/SA. They had a shot differential of -346. They were one of the worst possession teams in the league as well, with a CF of 47.38% (4th worst). Halak's numbers on the surface aren't anything to write home about, but if you dig a little deeper, he's right there with Khudobin on a few things. Take into consideration the defense each goalie played behind, and the fact Halak played in 23 more games and had around 1000 more minutes:

    These are based off their Even Strength (ES) statistics:

    Jarovslav Halak:
    ES SV% = .920
    LDSV% = .969
    MDSV% = .930
    HDSV% = .803

    Anton Khudobin:
    ES SV% = .920
    LDSV% = .983
    MDSV% = .913
    HDSV% = .801

    Good grab, hope he brings back his level of play he showed with the Habs were he was better then Price. Kind of puts a stop on Zane ever making it here. Another Islander lol, lets get DeHaan and that Traviarez, Travivaries guy, I hear he may be available.

    We haven't seen the money yet but you have to imagine it's less than Khudobin, right?

    So what would Tavares think about signing a Islander goalie who couldn't get it done over there? Don't know anything about their relationship but could be negative. Maybe the fact that Halak is the clear cut backup will let him blossom.

    About Zane. In the games he played with the big club he left me wondering if he has the mental stability to be an NHL goalie. Didn't saw him play in the AHL last year but read that he was still good for a blunder the every other game. Signing Halak to two years isn't a good sign for his case. I think Bruins move on and will put their hope in Vladar and Swayman. I have specially high hopes in Swayman

    Hard to judge this as we don't know the numbers. Have to expect it is less than Khudobin.

    And it had better be a lot less, because at the end of the day, your going from a player who has proven to work in Boston with this coaching staff, team, Rask and this defensive scheme, to essentially an unknown in Halak. He may work out, he may not.

    But if the final salary numbers are similar, it's pretty short-sighted to risk the unknown with Halak to save a couple dollars.
