If you think he can eventually get us a cup, you pay him what he's getting. Can he?
Compare his career to other winning goalies' careers. Most of them are volatile. There are a select few who stay in the first tier much longer than anyone else, but they're so hard to come by that it doesn't make sense to say "only pay top tier money to a top tier goalie". You'll end up with a 3rd or 4th tier goalie on the cheap and be forced to build your team around goaltending that has 0% chance of ever being reliable. I don't like the idea of having to force the retooling of an entire team just because some don't feel a particular $2 - $3 million is justified.
I'm in favor of paying Bryz a lot because there's no better option.
