Well, I was focusing more on Backlund/Bobro at the NHL level and Eriksson at the AHL level. I wouldn't want to see Homer lock up Turco for more than 2 years, anything longer than that and we're wayyyyyy too invested in a goalie passing his prime. 2 years is enough time to hold down the fort so-to-speak. Not to mention the way the goalie market is at the moment, there isn't a goalie that was/still is out on the market that was/is worth more than a 3 year contract IMO.
