Setting high goals is a very good thing and you want to have some amazingly high ones in the deal as well. It is just that for every "you get an extra million if you win the vezina" clause I think there should be the odd "you get an extra 500k if you keep your gaa below 3.25) as well.
Do you really think that a goalie who acheives two of
1) plays 1800 minutes,
2)has at least a 3.25 avg
3) has a 890 save percentage

should get a 4 mil bonus on top of a mil or so base .Frick, if the guy doesnt post way better numbers than those he should be playing in the ECHL.There wont be a #2 goalie in the league who wouldnt be eligible for that bonus.
