Lundqvist won't get a $10 million cap hit. Secondly, IF he gets an $8 million cap hit, I'm sure in a few years you will see goaltenders flirting with that kind of cap hit.
Just a few years ago Rinne was signed at $7 million. So, giving $8 million to whom is widely considered the best goalie in the league shouldn't be that crazy to think about.
Think about it, Price was signed to $6.5 million, and while he is a good goaltender, hasn't accomplished a lot in the league. In fact, when Lundqvist was signed at $6.875 million, Lundqvist was still a more proven starter than Price.
So, you're seeing $6-7 million contracts go out to what are considered top goalies, $1 million more for the "top" seems reasonable to a degree.
