It's been proven time and time again in the salary cap era that elite level defense and good goaltending wins Stanley Cups...not vice versa. But we do things differently here...

That said, at this point Sather has painted us into a corner...we really have no choice but to overpay Hank with an eight year deal that BEGINS with him at age 32. Without Hank we would be even worse than we are now...a team that more often than not struggles to make the playoffs, and wins five playoff series in eight years...all this with an elite goaltender.
