You can compare whatever you want. Quick's agent will compare similar goalies to determine a salary request. Hard to find a better set of current comparibles than the two players that Quick is in the running for the Vezina with. Not to mention Rinne and Quick's career stats are nearly identical.

Flery and Thomas both signed their deals a few years back as well, so it's reasonable to argue they would have been higher right now.

Neimi, well we both know DL would be laughed at if he was used as a comparible.

Like I said in my earlier post, Kings fans are going to need to decide if they want to pay $6.5 mill -$7.5 mill annually for a goalie. You can use whatever you want to compare goalies, but if Quick isn't getting offered something in that range, he'll be in a different jersey for the 2013-2014 season.
