He definitely would, that's true. The thing is, he's already very highly regarded, and his agent knows it. His long term value will go up if he does what you predict - maybe, from the 6mil to 7mil range, depending on what happens with the CBA? On the flip side, if he gets injured, misses a bunch of games, has an off year, gets into some off ice trouble, or goalie values drop in general as players like Thomas and Luongo get distributed throughout the league... IMO the potential for a bad contract would have a more devastating impact on the team than the possibility of overpaying by a million dollars per season due to another year of waiting.

edit: I'm especially looking forward to that Conn Smythe!
