In other words, guys like Rask and Quick have a much better team in front of them on any given night. And the reason those teams are better ain't because they have a million extra dollars in cap space.
And I'm sure Sather would gladly use Quick's contract as a comparable for Lundqvist's next one.
I think Lundqvist can make a compelling case to be the highest paid goaltender, and I think the Rangers should expect that. But the highest by ~20%?
By the way, 4 of the teams with the 10 highest goaltender cap-hits made the playoffs last season. 2 had home ice in the first round.
