We'll see. I'm not going to express any kind of judgment on a 10-game sample. He's got 3 well-deserved shut out and has looked very solid in most games. But the team's played very well in front of him, and he did have a couple meltdowns already.

Regardless, he's getting a good salary. Fleury's making $ 3M, with a $ 5M cap hit. Osgood's making $ 1.5 M. Mason $ 3 M. Cam Ward $ 3.5 M with a $ 2.7 M cap hit. Khabibulin $ 3 M with a $ 3.75 M cap hit.

Thomas, Nabokov & Huet make a little more at $ 5 M, $ 5.375 M and $ 5.65, but I think Huet is way overpaid. Bordeur only makes $ 5.2 M.

How much do you think Bryzgalov is worth? I mean, before we start thinking throwing $ 5 M+ at the guy, shouldn't he carry the team deep in the playoffs a few times??
