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.
I feel like if you had a lousy or just average goaltender between the pipes in Montreal you would understand the impact they have on your hockey team. I simply don't know how you value a 3rd overall pick more so than a top 3 elite goaltender in the NHL...regardless of CAP hit.

Malkin and Ovechkin have a huge CAP hit but they are clearly more valuable than an early 1st rounder. Seems like you just give no value to goaltenders.
