I'm more concerned about term than cap hit. A star goalie can't be relegated to second or third line duties like a skater can be if he is playing through injuries or declines. You either use the goalie or lose the whole investment. You sign a goalie while he begins the last year of his contract, that's an extra year something bad could happen in.

Kopi's deal expires in 2016-17, Doughty in 19-20, Richards in 20-21, Carter in 22-23. How about signing Quick until 17-18 or 18-19, a 4 or 5 year deal, for $6-6.5 million/year?

I am not a fan of the Rinne contract $7 million/7 years.
