    That's a really solid deal, I'm happy with that for sure. Even if DeSmith only ends up a whatever backup, $1.25 million a year for that is very fine. Even in the worst case scenario that he busts and ends up only being an AHLer, that's an easy contract to send to the AHL.

    Great sign. And this doesnt mean that Jarry is gone. Just gives us another option of who to trade if we choose that route now that DeSmith wont be a UFA. Thats a great contract for someone looking for a goalie...could def get something of value back if we want to keep Jarry instead.

    It seems really unlikely that they'd sign DeSmith to a new contract then trade him before he's even started playing on it. GMs don't do that to UFAs.

    Jarry the sweetener to Seattle to pick Johnson?

    Good deal. Glad it's done. Hopefully he and Murray continue their friendly competition and everyone benefits.

    Nice to know that Murray and DeSmith will be the tandum for three more years. Extremely steady and reliable combination that likely will only get better.

    Jarry won't be a penguin long enough for this to happen

    Darling had two full years as a backup though before his Carolina deal, 29 GP in 15-16 and 32 in 16-17 along with 14 in 14-15. DeSmith will probably finish with around 35GP this year but he only had 14 GP last year.

    Jarry is definitely being traded people, it's a trade or waivers for him

    Idk. If Carolina wants a goalie badly...maybe something along Jarry and Blueger + 3rd for Ferland.

    I wonder if they'll keep him as the #3 and move him at the draft. In terms of asset management it would be smart to move him sooner rather than later though.

    Is D'Orio the next guy on the depth chart after Jarry??

    Back on topic. Well done GMJR.

    Great signing.

    Wow that's great value for the Penguins. I'm actually a little surprised that CDS wanted 3 years as it locks him out of a shot of a starter role, being 30 when he comes off this contract. Unless for some reason Murray has issues down the road, and then we have bigger problems.

    Big fan of DeSmith, he does give up the odd bad goal up but tends to really lock down the game after he does so. So pretty good for us to have him backing up Murray.

    Because he knows he will get a chance to be the starting goalie during our cup run. For at least half of the games like Fleury did. Or at least against the Caps.

    Murray beat them the first time. Fleury the 2nd time. Murray lost his 2nd time around. Only makes sense for them to face another goalie...in DeSmith. We win again.

    Securing the most important position for 3 more years. Brilliant from Papa Jim.

    Pretty much, well unless Murray suffers a massive long term injury

    I don’t think so this year...Murray still hasn’t shown he can be healthy all year and into the POs...I’d guess they’ll feel it out and if the goaltending remains solid through the rest of the season, then Jarry might be traded at the draft....just a guess

    Good move. We were signing over the hill backups for around this money several years ago. CDS has shown a lot in his time here so I’ve got no problem with the contract.
