Stars sign G Anton Khudobin for 2 yrs at $2.5 million each

Postby Troy McClure » Sun Jul 01, 2018 8:06 am

Khudobin is Nill's latest goalie adventure. Two years at $2.5 million each.

Yes. Not one of Nill's goalie moves is anything above a B. Most have been total failures.

Should we re-sign Kari too, just to be safe?

Five years ago this guy was the *poo poo*. Now he's just ok. But "ok" is still an improvement on Starting Goalie Kari, so... B-.

This is the going rate for a backup goalie when your team sucks at drafting. I can't complain about it. There aren't cheaper options on the free agent market that anyone would want, and there aren't any kids in the system who can do the job.

Oettinger and Point look really promising, but they're still a few years away.

Of the UFAs this was the best we could hope for. Bishop is still injury prone.

Does that mean he won’t melt under pressure?

In under-reported news, Stars signed their ACTUAL backup goalie yesterday:

I would love to have secret recordings of the sales pitch to Colton Point and his deliberations. With the Stars goalie pipeline being wide open, they certainly had to have sold Point on the ability to get a developmental and organizational jump on Oettinger. Point is about 9 months older, but was in an earlier draft year and was drafted in a later round (5th round versus late 1st). They kind of flipped in terms of performance in college, with Point really excelling this past year versus Oettinger having a great freshman year.

With Khudobin on a two year deal, it could line up perfectly for Point to step in after a couple of years in the minors ahead of Oettinger.

Just in time for him to either wash out completely or get nabbed by Seattle on the next expansion draft if he actually has anything.

Good read on the new guy:

https://theathletic.com/417112/2018/07/ ... -khudobin/

So apparently his .800 save percentage in breakaways/shootout is the second best in NHL history.

It's not really clear how Val got 30 breakaways against him, though.

That’s pretty good considering Niemi’s breakaway sv% is roughly .000.
