I'd think the Luongo, Bryzgalov, Giguere, Huet, Nabokov, Fleury, Niemi, Anderson, Backstrom deals of recent years would've deterred franchises from offering long-term, high-paying deals to goaltenders who are anything but career-long producers a la Lundqvist and Brodeur.
So when Howard signs a similar deal you'll be singing the same tune, right?
