He may be a top-5 goalie, but it's legitimate to ask the question.
Is he clearly better than Lundqvist, Rinne, Thomas, Halak, Luongo, Miller, Vokoun, etc?
It's not clear that he is.
The team has tied the wagon to this guy, for good or bad. They will treat him as their long term starting goaltender ala Cam Ward and go as far as they can for as long as they can. He's not a top goaltender at the moment but let's hope in the long run he's good enough.
Having said that if contract demands become unreasonable you have to look elsewhere, he can't hold the team hostage after the incredible way they've supported him.
