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.
Of course the agents use other players as a point to negotiate from, that's their side of the negotiation. Management is allowed to make counterpoints.
There are other comparables out there other than Rinne. If anything he is quite a bit outside the norm and it is obvious as to why that happened.
I would love to negotiate my rates and/or salary with some of you.
