Difficult to say, but I agree this needs to be factored in. They cannot pay Hank like he will be a top goalie for the next nine years...because he won't be. How many years less than nine is open to debate.

So Sather either has to give Hank the maximum length contract at a lower amount, or give him a shorter contract at top dollar.

Giving him a huge cap hit for max years would be a disaster waiting to hit us down the road.
