Helle­buyck’s net in­come

Winnipeg Free Press - - YOUR SAY -

Re: Jets re­ward Helle­buyck with $37-mil­lion deal (July 12)

I like the sign­ing. We need a good goalie in this league, and if Con­nor Helle­buyck can con­tinue to im­prove in the off-sea­son like Mark Scheifele, then all is good.

I would, how­ever, like to have seen the Jets take (Marko) Dano, (Joel) Ar­mia (who is now gone) and (Steve) Ma­son (gone), and have made a three-for-one deal with an­other NHL team. We need an­other hard-nosed, clever player to re­place (Paul) Stastny.


Lock­ing up a Vez­ina-fi­nal­ist goal­tender for his en­tire prime is a good way to start a Thurs­day! Now do (Ja­cob) Trouba and (Josh) Mor­ris­sey.

Every­thing we hear and can glean from watch­ing and lis­ten­ing to him sug­gests this sign­ing is an ex­cel­lent in­vest­ment in the fu­ture.

His char­ac­ter, style of play and ded­i­ca­tion to fit­ness and train­ing all say a big yes to this sign­ing. Yay!


Too much money for a guy who’s played two years and only had one good one.

Just think how much more he could have signed for if he could han­dle the puck like (Mike) Smith, (Martin) Brodeur, (Carey) Price, etc.

Maybe he can learn that skill also.

I like his play in the crease, but he re­ally scares me when he goes to play the puck be­hind the net.
