Also, as a Habs fan, do you really think that signing guys like Gomez (7mil), Cammy (6mil), Gionta (5mil), Kaberle (4.25mil) is a better investment worth downgrading to a mediocre goalie from a franchise goalie in Price?

My point is that it is not a simple division of salaries by position, it's who you're paying and how well they play. I'd rather invest $7mil for Rinne than any of the players on Montreal listed above (and Cammy).
Nailed it.
