7.8 million is a terrible deal for 59 points. Pacioretty, Desharnais and Cole all had more points than Nash this year and if you combined all their salaries last year you still wouldn't get 7.8 million.
As for the cheap goaltender winning the cup argument, for one, correlation doesn't mean causation. Two, would Price have been paid 6.5 million back in 2007? No. But the salary cap has gone up and so have salaries, it's not fair to compare Price's salary signed this summer with ones that were signed 5 or 6 years ago.
