Lundqvist is going to be hurting at 7.5 per? He NEEDS to be at 8 per?

hogwash.
To be fair, the numbers that have been thrown around are just speculation from the media. Hank deserves to be the highest paid goalie in the league and he will be. Right now, no goalie in the league has a cap hit higher than 7 mil. And no goalie in the league will make more than 7 mil in salary next year.

Rask makes 6 mil next year and 7.5 mil per for the 4 years after that, before the salary drops back down for the final 3 years of the deal.

Henrik is making 5.125 mil next year. Give him 7 years 52.5 mil. 7.5 per year. That's fair for both sides IMO.
