Lu has definitely been a great goalie but I don't think you have to be a crazy leafs fan to determine that his contract is ridiculous. Better, younger goalies, like Pekka Rinne get locked up by their teams for less term than that.

The decline question is fair as well considering his shaky, mentally weak playoff performances. He would probably rebound and do well with a fresh start but with that kind of term it's a big risk.
So you (the royal you, not you specifically IHZ) should trade for Pekka Rinne then. Oh, wait, he's not being traded. A bad playoff series, Chicago or Boston (arguably anyway) aren't fair as a sample size. What about Dallas, Anaheim, L.A. (twice), St. Louis, Nashville or San Jose? Those series he was good to amazing, and everyone seems to forget he's 7/10 in terms of taking over a series in Vancouver.
