Just way too many years from the getgo.

Briere might get bought out...but he only has 2(?) more years...not worth it with Prongers deal sitting there too.
Yeah, it matters very much. Doesn't make sense to unload one contract and be forced to hand the same kind of contract to the next goalie who won't be a sureshot.

Notable names are Thomas, Nabokov, Backstrom, Howard, and Mike Smith.
Backstrom and Smith are the only interesting guys, imo.
Both on a short deal, because of age or the Phoenix-effect. Both won't be cheap.
