Quick had a fantastic season. He deserves to be rewarded. I don't think 7-10 year deals make sense for any goaltender. They do not work out in most situations.
Except on Planet Earth, players and agents use comparables to place a value on their client. Do you really think Karlsson would have received his $6.5 million cap hit if Doughty didn't already set the bar at $7 million?

Whether you like it or not, Rinne and Nashville have set the bar. It's up to Quick on how much he is willing to go below it, he will be an UFA at the end of his contract.
