ANd overrated
Maybe. But you said he was over the hill. No reason to believe that. Niskanen had a very good season last year at 35.

I thought I read free agency begins at noon today, though I may be mistaken.

it's official, they signed him to a one year deal.  He will get to continue to wear his Rangers uniform though. :)

And Holtby goes to my Western team.  A pretty decent FA day so far  :D

Maybe I'm too used to used to baseball contracts, but a 4.3 million AAV doesn't seem like that much

I think it’s in the mid range. He has not been good the past few years (other than the 2018 postseason).

I was expecting more AAV or more than two years for a guy who recently won a Cup, but probably good enough all around under the circumstances.

His save percentages the last three years were .907/.911/.897.  He lost his starting job in 2018 and again in 2020.  He is on a major decline.  These teams are fools.  So be it.

They also signed a defenseman from the Penguins.  Meh.

The defense, from purely a talent level, will be better than this past year. Carlson-Dillon, Orlov-Schultz, Siegs/Fehervary-TVR is a deep top 6.

I will say this is a pretty damning indictment of our defensive prospects, notably former 1st-round pick Lucas Johansen, who I guess sucks? Alexeyev is young enough where I see him eventually becoming an Orlov replacement.
