It's not a question of whether Hank deserves $7M or $9M in two years, or even the next three or four years. It's a question of whether it's prudent to commit that much money to him six, seven, or eight years from now. When a goalies shelf life expires, you can't drop him in the lineup. He becomes absolute cap dead-weight.

If he's willing to take a four year deal, sure throw money at him. But if he wants the security of a retirement contract, he better be willing to take a discount.
