The ship is righted, some owners still might think he’s crazy but he’s proved it’s been a successful stra… wait… 

He a back-up who had a good final 6 games?  That’s worth at least 4m right there.  Probably an extra mil to stay in Buff.

What’s Leino getting paid again?

Enroth really isn’t a bad goalie - he’s had good stretches of performance when Miller was injured.  I’m actually surprised he didn’t try to push for a starter role somewhere else.

TreKronor, wasn’t Enroth in net for Team Sweden at the recent World Championships against the Swiss?

Glad you mentioned that SYF - I had forgotten.  Played 10 games, had a save % of .9563 and a GAA of 1.15 allowing only 8 goals on 183 shots.  I’m just surprised to see him stay, but good on Buffalo for keeping him there.  http://stats.iihf.com/Hydra/352/IHM3520SWE_83_11_0.pdf
