just for fun, did you took a look how 7 000 000$ Rinne is doing in the KHL ?

His save % (.900 over 20gp) is not even in the top 30, he lag behind name like Mikael Tellqvist. Erik Ersberg, Karri Ramo, Brobovski, Khudobin, Jeff Glass, Ari Ahonen, Michael Garnett

Varlamov is leading the league with an astonishing 0.951 (but not really significant)

of course its only a small sample of 20gp, but still....
I'm confused why put Quick in that list. Yes he is at 1.8.. for 1 more season until his cap hit (5.8) surpasses Luongos. You can shoot for sub 2M goaltending but the chances of that guy being a Conn-Smythe winning, elite calibre goalie are slim.
