With a position of such little room for mistake, a completely different change of pace would be extremely hard to adjust to especially in a league you are not as motivated to be successful at (I only assume that part)
And any goalie will look worse without Suter and Weber.
The real question for me is: In a salary cap world, At 7 000 000$ does Rinne worth more than a Galchenyuk ?

And for me the answer is no.

Especially if, for whatever reason, the possibility that this kind of goalie can be statistically among the worst KHL starter after 22 games.

Even last year in the NHL at .923% his performance isnt that much of a difference over an average goalie to warrant a 7 000 000$ contract.

The median was .915%, Having Rinne over the median goalie mean about 12-16 less goals allowed over an entire season, if i remember well.
