As I said, I think 5 years and $33M is fair to both sides. The Nashville contract with Rinne is stupid.
So having him signed for 3 more years makes a big difference between the Kings winning or not winning the Cup? What if he suffers an injury in his first year under contract? What if Doughty suffers an injury? You can't say whether or not he's going to suffer from a career ending injury, so it is nonsensical to believe that it will definitely happen to him. How is it any different having Richards and Carter locked up for the next 10+ years?

In 8 years Quick will be 34. Well conditioned goalies play until their late 30s. Stop worrying about something that hasn't happened yet.
