I was browsing on blue shirt banter today. I came across a article stating that our king could be asking for around 9.5 million a year. Even with the cap going up next summer and how good he is I dont believe he is worth that kind of money. Dont get me wrong I love him between the pipes and he does make us a contender every year. But that much money could really damper our team in the long run for a long time coming.
The past cup winners havent had the greatest goalie in the world playing for them, even though quick is up there but if you look at the blackhawks, redwings, ext... there goalie wasnt making nearly as much. They all had really good talent on all 4 lines with no bargain players. Everyone on there teams had a role and that kind of money tied up with nash making almost 8 could hurt us long term.
What do you guys think.
