The Penguins decision about Tristan Jarry isn’t truly about money

Tristan Jarry enters 2022-23 as the goalie with the tied for 29th biggest salary cap hit it in the league, at $3.5 million dollars. That’s great value for the Penguins, since by any account he was in the top 5-10 for best NHL goalie performances in the regular season last year.

That value won’t be last long, however. Jarry will be an unrestricted free agent next summer and is now eligible to be re-signed.

The price amount of a contract Jarry can command will be influenced greatly by his 2022-23 season performance, for natural reasons.
