I don't hear anyone in Nashville saying it was a mistake. I don't believe it was a mistake. It's a free market- if Nashville didn't want to give Rinne that term/money, they shouldn't have offered it. If Rinne didn't want that term/money, he shouldn't have signed the offer.

Both Rinne and Lundquist are making ~$7M / yr on 6-7 yr contracts. Those are comparables for salaries and term whether you like it or not. Of all people, DL knows what happens when you low-ball players. See SJ.
