Long goalie contracts get me nervous.

Isn’t that a bit much for a goalie as unproven as he?

143 games in to his career with 2.12 GPA and 9.25% save percentage.  Not sure he’s unproven; that being said 7 years is a long time for a goalie.  Very few goalies manage to keep their stats up over time.  Remember Mason?  Neither do I.

You are right!  How did I not see it before.

Yeah, but the most games he’s ever started is 45.  I’d say that’s still pretty unproven, at least to get starter money.
