Price is too much by himself, so Allen at 2.8 isn't bad lol.

Yeah, it's an interesting approach. I don't think ideally you pay that much for a backup unless it's a platoon situation or you're at least giving the guy 30% of the games; and if that's the case, you're paying Price way too much.

I'm guessing Bergevin is concerned about Price staying healthy, and wants to have a guy that conceivably keep the team in it over potentially long stretches - whether Allen's career is trending towards Schnieder or Halak, we'll have to see.

Compressed season and all, maybe you're right in that he's insurance for Price's inevitable injuries.

Great selection, just by statistical likelihood. Poile has been with the team since its inception, 1997. Capfriendly shows they have bought out 9 players in totality (hi Dicky!).

That's probably the highest raw total for any one tenure, but a pretty low rate, considering how many signings he has done (296). Lou Lamoriello comes close during his Devils tenure.

The really fun one is Brad Treliving who has signed 141 contracts and 6 buyouts already. Chris Tanev and Jacob Markstrom might not be far behind if he still has a job.
