7 million is the top cap hit for a goalie you'll see for at least 5 years. Inflation is the only thing that'll drive that up. GM's like to screw goalie's over as much as they can financially so even if the cap goes up, you still won't see GM's giving them more than Rinne. That being said, even Rinne's contract at 7 million is ridiculous.
