I'm not calling for his head. He remains a good goalie; but, I'd like to see him start playing like a great goalie. Even then It's pretty doubtful he will be good enough for long enough to justify what is more likely than not going to turn out to be an unjustifiable contract. For one thing, he better start being like Lundqvist carrying the Rangers through their struggles, or Vokoun essentially being Florida's team for years. For his contract and skill level, he needs to be able to stand on his own and bail the team out when they struggle...that's the point of getting him, right?

Regardless, that contract is 4 years too long. That's not his fault though, that lies with the organization. Signing him for the rest of his prime is one thing...signing him through his decline years was a bad idea.
