This is a franchise who has struggled in net for what...10+ years?

It's not hard to see that they're signing a proven star goalie and they'll likely buy him out at some point and eat the contract to avoid paying him that long if he ages poorly. If he sticks to form, they may have their guy in net for the next 6 years or so...maybe longer.
