In all seriousness, it's hard to justify anything close to 15% or the CBA mandated 20% of the cap for one guy. Hence all the massaging of cap space with innovative contracts & terms.
I've said this before, but no goalies in the league right now are worth more than 4.5m. And the only goalie I'd want on the Wings at 4m or more is Lundqvist. The position is too fragile to spend a ton of cap space on it. It's the one position that can literally destroy a teams season.
