    Default Lightning Give Vasilevskiey an Insane Contract for a Goaltender

    Considering that the guy has never won them a Cup, and that, along with his mates, shat the bed last spring, how can he command an eight year $9.5M AAV salary??? His first year as a starter, they missed the playoffs. Then he played well the following year, but not well enough to get past the Capitals. Yes, he's just 25, and he could be really, really good, but . . . .

    The Lightning have flipped the goalie cart on its ear.

    But hey, if they win a cup or two, at least they are paying for those cups.

    Unlike most teams, who get cups before the pay increase, and then dish out the big contract after the cups while their goalie is declining.
