BREAKING NEWS: Sens Re-Up Anderson For Four Years...Yes FOUR
Here's my gut reaction to this. I like Anderson, I do, and he has played extremely well in his time here, but four years and at that price? WTF! He made 1.8 million this year, and we almost double his salary after 15 games, and lock ourselves in for 4 years. Shocking, even for Bryan Murray.
What about Robin Lehner now? What about if Anderson struggles (he's hardly a sure thing)? Didn't we just learn this lesson with Pascal Leclaire basically? I barely even know what to say.
Basically we are buying at the highest possible point known to man. Why are we even letting Murray make these moves that can screw up your team for years, when he's supposed to be done at the end of the year? Here's a prediction, Murray keeps his job and gets a new contract this offseason, book it!
I don't mean this as any kind of hate for Anderson at all, I like him a lot and I like how he's played so far, but that's all it is, so far. At least I wasn't the only one thinking it's a bit crazy, but hard to imagine he wouldn't have signed this deal closer to July 1st. That's all for now, I'm in disbelief at the moment. And oh ya, you know there's a NTC or NMC in there for sure, that's Murray's M.O.
Thoughts on the signing?
