I thought Fleury was overpaid at $5M. Someone above had it right that Rask really had one dominant series and played ok in the Final. He basically lost in the 1st round to Toronto and has not won a Cup. Not sure how he got that deal.
I look at it very much the same way I looked at Vokoun... they have a guy that plays well when his guys play well for him, and his guys play well for him often. He didn't dominate much in the playoffs, but from the blue line back, they were better than everyone else.
If they hadn't had a miracle happen against Toronto, he would have been viewed as a complete failure, because Toronto scored often. He had nothing to do with the comeback either.
It's ok with me if Boston wants to throw a wad of cash at him. They must feel pretty secure with him, but my point is that he is not the best goalie in the league. He is around the the top 10.
