Every team have a budget, if you all money to a player, this money cant be allowed elsewhere.

So if you allow 6 000 000$ to quick, in the future it would take the place of what could be a a star forward/defenseman or two 3 000 000$. There is no way around that, no magic formula, you have to make cut somewhere, to overpay at a position. If Carolina, Buffallo, Vancouver, NYR, Phi, MIN, didnt had a 5 000 000+ stars goalie It would allow them to have a better team up front.

Seeing how well performed the cheap (under 2 000 000$) UFA goalie (Smith, Vokoun, Theodore, Elliot etc...) Versus the 2 000 000$ UFA forward/Defensemen I would rather put my money upfront.
