He's so bipolar, leading the league in SOs and then meltdowns. I wouldn't pay him 7M a year.
Nashville's goalies have always looked good - Dunham, Vokoun, Ellis, now Rinne. Doesn't seem like a fluke to me. Who should get the credit for that - Trotz, or Mitch Korn the goalie coach, or just having good defencemen? I haven't watched the Preds enough to be able to decide.

Agreed on Rinne's inconsistency. Vancouver just seems to have his number. But then again, other "elite" goalies like Lundqvist and Luongo have had their meltdowns too - I think it's just unavoidable.
