Nikolai KhabibulinEDM $3,750,000
Jaroslav Halak STL $3,750,000
Kari Lehtonen DAL $3,550,000
Pekka Rinne NAS $3,400,000
Craig Anderson OTT $3,188,000
Dwayne Roloson TBL $3,000,000

Of them, only Rinne is in my opinion better than Pavs (Due a hefty raise to say the least), with Hiller being comparable in talent. Stats say one thing, but if we had been playing with Anderson, or Niemi, I think we would have lost a number of games Pavs carried us through. Backstrom, in Minnesota, is being paid $6M a year. So I think 4yr/$16M is something Pavs will live with, and we shouldn't cry about.
Only Rinne is better? Totally disagree. Hiller, Halak, Lehtonen, and Rinne are all better than Pavelec.
