The 10 Highest-Paid NHL Goaltenders: Which Ones Are Worth the Price?

There are many elite goaltenders in today’s NHL. Some are paid accordingly, while others are not.

There are also cases of lofty expectations being placed on certain goaltenders after a few good seasons, which usually comes in the form of a huge contract. While some of these big-money goaltenders are a little overpaid, some have earned their large salaries and are the primary reason for their team’s overall success.

Let’s analyze the 10 highest-paid goaltenders in the NHL (based on salary cap hits) and see which goaltenders are truly worth the amount of money they make.

Rather than simply giving a yes or no answer to this question, I’ve created a pay scale rating system, just as I did with the 13 highest-paid NHL skaters. The scale ranges from one to five, with one representing a goaltender that isn’t even close to earning his salary and five representing a truly elite goaltender that is worth every penny he makes.
