Ward (2006) won the Conn Smythe with a salary of 684 000$

Giguere (2003) won the Conn Smythe with a salary of 900 000$

in the past 10 years 30% of the Conn Smythe winner was cheap paid goalie.

As i said before, Going with Quick was a choice (Gamble) by Los Angeles. Some years ago they could have choose to sign a high paid, long term contract goalie relegating Quick as a backup and doing pay cut elsewhere to allow them to have this goalie. (look like the strategy Vancouver did!)

But i have to admit, this gamble didn't work with Garon
