Solid playoffs?!! Kipper had an oustanding playoffs, I'd say the best aside from Khabby (who won the Cup so he's defaulted top goalie of the playoffs). But should he be making near 3 million...no way. A shade under 2 million is more than fair. Make it a one year deal...show them that he can (and will) repeat last year under a full (hopefully but unlikely) season.
