"That's a lot for a goalie with 3 NHL games to his name."

Amid the discussions surrounding Ivan Fedotov's contract extension, speculation arose regarding his representation. One fan queried NHL insider Darren Dreger about a potential change in agents:

"Hey @DarrenDreger, can you check if he switched agents. Hearing he ditched JP Barry for Paul Theofanos."

Despite the mixed reactions, some fans expressed support and congratulations for Fedotov securing a favorable contract. One fan wrote:

"Good for him man"

However, not all fans were as enthusiastic about Ivan Fedotov's contract terms. One fan remarked:

"Ummm that’s a lot"

"Obviously a natural born flyers hater myself, but ppl crying overpay from a team that’s had goaltending issues forever lol it’s a 3.25 hit w the cap going up you’re all a bunch of nerds."
