Its the old Breezer scenario. Patrice Brisbois was a decent dman, just not worth the 4 odd million he was earning at the time.
Actually, I think this is changing. 14 goalies now have a cap hit of at least 5mil (well, 13 as the Flames appear to have successfully circumvented the cap with no penalty). I don't really understand that trend, given that several teams have 2 very good goalies, but it seems to be the going rate for a team's starter. Price might still be overpaid, but the rest of the league is catching up pretty fast as more big contracts are handed out.
