But, if you look at the lists, the forwards and defensemen that get top end money sure seem to be better long term bets than goalies tend to be.

And most of the big forward/defense misses tend to be overpaid UFAs. You get some of that in goal (Huet being the poster child). But, you also get some of that with big deals to keep #1s, as well. Backstrom might be the poster child for that today and I could see Rinne being the poster child for that in 3 or 4 years.
