Ramblings: Bubble Keeper Week – Rittich Signs, Bubble Keepers DeAngelo, D. Toews, Varlamov, Stastny (July 28)

Mere hours after I featured him in Bubble Keeper Week yesterday, David Rittich signed a two-year contract with a cap hit of $2.75 million per season with the Flames. Rittich will be earning exactly the same amount as newly acquired Cam Talbot in 2019-20, which is a clear sign that the Flames’ goaltending situation will be a battle and could very well involve the two goalies splitting starts. Opinions seem to be mixed about whether Rittich can become the Flames’ full-time starter, as his first-half numbers were stronger than his second-half numbers. The ratios are also further proof that the win-loss totals can be misleading (especially Quarter 3).
