Overpayment, 5M/year would've made more sense.

This, but hey, he has been giving them a shot at a post-season run each and every year so he deserves it. Solid goalie, but a little too much cap.

Overpayment, but still a very good and underrated goalie.

Nice to see the owners are so appalled by the current CBA that they are making contracts that make sense...oh wait......

Great when consistent. but too much cap.

But hey, it's what happens when you don't sign someone to a 12 year contract.

Not bad. A little higher than I would have thought. Would have expected something closer to 5.5, so not much off the mark.

A bit much, but he does give them a chance for the playoffs every year.

Terrible contract and I like Lehts as a player. Far too long of a term at that salary.

Did Joey N forget about Jack Campbell?

There's definitely a trend going on in the NHL. Teams are spending more on goaltending.

Next season 2012/13, 13 teams will have more $6.7M allocated to goaltending. That's 43% of the league.

In 2013/14, there will likely be 15-20 teams allocating more than $6.7M to goaltending (due to some key goalie UFA's and Lehtonen/Quick extensions). That's possibly more than half the league allocating <$6.7M to goaltending. That's never happened in the NHL.

Luongo's contract is looking good to teams. He's on a fixed contract - albeit for a very long time. All the new extensions have cap hits higher than Luongos (Quick, Price, Lehtonen, Rinne, Bryz). Should be interesting.
