Reports: Ottawa Senators give Matt Murray four-year, $25M deal


After acquiring goaltender

 from the Penguins two days ago, the

 have signed him to a four-year, $25 million deal, according to multiple reports.


Ottawa sent forward prospect Jonathan Gruden and a second-round draft pick to Pittsburgh in the deal.


The Senators said that they wouldn't be re-signing longtime goaltender

 this offseason.


It feels like Murray has been around forever, but he is only 26. He started out like a Hall of Famer, winning back-to-back Stanley Cups in his first two seasons in the league.


But that was three years ago, and last season, he not only didn't look like a Stanley Cup goalie, but he struggled to be an NHL starter.


He had a goals-against average of 2.87 and a career-worst .899 save percentage. He ended up splitting time with fellow restricted free agent

, who became an All-Star.


Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford indicated that he might be shopping Murray. And then he signed Jarry to an extension, likely making

 the backup.


Murray is coming off a three-year contract with a cap hit of $3.75 million. In his five seasons in the league, he has a career GAA of 2.67, a save percentage of .914 and, more importantly, those two Cups.

Waaaayyyyyy tooooooo muuuuuuuuuch.


 His numbers have slipped for years, he was ran out of Pittsburgh, no way no how is he worth 6.25 million.


  That said Ottawa is stacked with kids on their ELC or just barely arbitration eligible, and they have stated for the next few years they may have a hard time reaching the cap floor so if they believe Murrayis their  long term guy, no reason not to pay him.

He's only 26, a two time cup winner, and how has a chance to be the undisputed man...


Build your team from the netminder out, it's gonna be interesting.
