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.
It's not really that out of line.
I'm too lazy to see what their cap hit % was when they signed their deals, but the NHL and NHLPA just set the 2012-13 cap at $70.2 million. I'm guessing that $7 per season is the going rate for a top 5 goalie. Do you think that Quick is not a top 5 goalie?
If the CBA lowers the cap, I expect a salary roll back too.
