Unless of course, he stuggles. Goalies have a lot more probability of losing it than a skater, which is why this is a dicey situation.
If you look at the recent big contracts given out to goalies, most have turned out for the worse. Khabibulin. Theodore at 6m (rollback helped). Cujo in Detroit. Nabakov at 4.5m (rollback helped).
Broduer is arguable the only big contract goalie over the past couple of seasons that has lived up to the expectations of his phat contract.
Now that's what I call a sticky situation (southpark reference intended).
