The fact that he's RFA helps but I'll be happy if we get him at 6 million a season. On the active goaltenders list right now he's got the 5th or 6th best career save percentage and he's not even 25 yet. We're going to have to pay for that. If he demanded more, I'd give it to him.
5 years 30 mil... we should be very happy with that.

I think teams regret the contract term more than contract dollars. I wouldn't want to sign any player to an 8 year deal if I can help it. That's a long time to be tied to somebody. I'd much prefer 5 years at 30 mil and it's better for Price too.
There's also no way that Price signs an 8 year 40 million dollar contract. He'd be stupid to do this.
