Let's look at how the highest paid goalies by cap hit are doing so far this season using Save% as the rating stat:

1 - Lundqvist - $6.875M - 16th in Save% .929
2 - Ward - $6.3M - 27th in Save% .912
3 - Miller - $6.25M - 21st in Save% .922
4 - Backstrom - $6M - 28th in Save% .912
5 - Kiprusoff - $5.833M - 20th in Save% .925
6 - Bryzgalov - $5.66M - 40th in Save% .893
7 - Huet - $5.625M --> exiled to Europe
8 - Luongo - $5.33M - 39th in Save% .894
9 - Brodeur - $5.2M - 47th in Save% .872
10 - Thomas - $5M - 11th in Save% .931

Most of the top 10 Save% guys are backups:

1 - Josh Harding - Backstrom's #2 in Minny
2 - Khabibulin - 15th in cap hit at $3.75M
3 - Martin Biron
4 - Jhonas Enroth
5 - Jacob Markstrom - Florida's GOTF that is behind Theodore & Clemmensen for the moment
6 - Dan Ellis - Hiller's #2 in Anaheim
7 - Jonathan Quick - 30th in cap hit at $1.8M
8 - Brian Elliott - Halak's #2 in St Louis
9 - Kari Lehtonen - 17th in cap hit at $3.55M
10 - Marc-Andre Fleury - 11th in cap hit at $5M
Sample size problem. Let's see where everyone is after 50 or 60 games.
