Goalie Money

When Martin Brodeur signed his six-year contract extension last week, worth an average of $5.2 million per year, I thought that would be the benchmark for goalie salaries. Not anymore.

The San Jose Sharks today re-signed Evgeni Nabokov to a brand-spanking new contract.
Nabokov, who could have become an unrestricted free agent after the season, will make $5 million in each of the next two years, $5.5 million in 2008-09 and $6 million in 2009-10.
Now, if Nabokov and his 14-15-6 record, 2.95 GAA and 0.892 SV% are worth an average of $5.375 million per year for four years, I wonder what is someone like Roberto Luongo, who turned down Florida's 5 yr/$30 million contract offer, worth?
