Being that I believe that Hank's current contract is already detrimental to the overall balance/depth of the lineup, the answer to your question is without a doubt "yes". The guy is hands down the best player at his position, but I just don't think it's possible to surround a goalie that is making that much money with a team that is capable of winning it all. I wish I had the time to do a rigorous statistical analysis, but my sense is that the variation in goalies from #1 to say, #13, is not large enough to warrant the difference in pay.
