Corey Crawford inks six year extensionThe Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks announced Monday that they have agreed to terms on a six-year extension for goaltender Corey Crawford.  Reportedly, the contract is worth $36 million. In his sophomore campaign and first year as Chicago's starter, Crawford struggled; a large group of hockey insiders questioned whether he should be  a starting goalie that the NHL level.Last season, in the lockout shortened campaign, the Chicago Blackhawks were the talk of NHL and Crawford played a huge role in that going 19-5-5  with a sensational 1.94 GAA and a .926 save percentage. if this is the Corey Crawford the Chicago Blackhawks get for the length of the extension the $6 million salary - cap hit will be well worth it. Honestly, Corey Crawford showed great resiliency last season by putting up such great numbers after such an awful sophomore campaign. Players with this kind of ability are rare to find.What you guys think of the contract?
