They are all around Backstrom's 6 mil contract. Broduer obviously took a discount, same as Dipietro and Thomas. And alot of these goalies signed before the influx of the prices of contracts. See Jeff Finger. Starting goalies don't come often in the free agent market, and if they did, teams wanting a legit #1 would pay top dollar, around 6.5+.
