Toronto does not have that, hell, most teams don't have that... so they have to overpay to bring in goalies of a certain quality, and that overpayment comes in the range of the $5M plus goalies you see around the league.
Chicago was stacked, and they could afford to roll through Huet, Khabibulin, Niemi, Crawford, Darling and so on... but now they cannot, their system is barren, and will likely have to overpay to get a goalie to go there, because who will go to a team with no real future for less money? (just like Toronto, a goalie would have to knowingly go to a team relying on 20 year old defenseman with limited to no NHL experience.... I'd want to be payed more for that)</div></div>
Agreed but at some point you need to make the decision to start filling up the cupboards
