Kyle Dubas has just announced his biggest move since taking over as president of hockey operations for the Pittsburgh Penguins and, perhaps for the first time in his tenure with the Penguins, he is on the receiving end of criticism from the Penguins fan base.

The Penguins have announced that they have signed goaltender Tristan Jarry to a massive 5 year contract extension, one worth a whopping $26.875 million over the team of the deal. That works out to an average annual value and salary cap hit of $5.375 million per season for Jarry, which represents a significant raise from the average annual value of $3.5 million he was earning on his previous deal.

Jarry had his fair share of struggles last season which is why this deal has raised so many eyebrows, with many believing that the Penguins would go in a different direction. Jarry appeared in 47 games last season, recording a 2.90 goals against average and a .909 save percentage.

As I stated there are many already questioning this decision, but only time will tell how this plays out over the next 5 years.
