will quick have motivation to play after a cup and a retirement contract? Price will be the better goalie long term, he's a competitive guy with a chip on his shoulder. BOOK IT. Price still has room to hit another big contract when he's 30 years old.
Wow. Thats a ****** cap hit for real. My respect for Berg has dropped considerably. Where are all the great contract negotiations we heard about from this guy?
When your franchise goalie wants 6.5M you pay it. It may be high this year but in 2 or 3 years when all the contracts are up and all the goalies are re-signing I bet he'll be closer to the average of a starting goalie.
With the Rinne signing last season, I was expeting 7mil/year for Price, but the latest Quick contract got me thinking that we could have had less... Anyways, it was his negociations, Price had all the leverage in the world... now it's done, time to actually improve this mofo team.
