Lundqvist..RFA
 
I saw on thn.com (hockey news) that lundqvist is a restricted free agent.....hes going to want a hefty raise....will this interfere with other potential FA signings?

considering he's only paid like $800,000 a season and is maybe our BEST player. He deserves the raise. Thats the guy you pay.

Noonan25 04-03-2007 10:06 PM

I don tthink it will affect anything

broadwayblue 04-03-2007 10:08 PM

Plus, with Weeke's 2mil coming off the cap we can use some of that towards Henrik's contract.

Balej20* 04-03-2007 10:11 PM

Isn't there some kind of restriction on how much he can get paid next year only being a 3rd year player?

Biiingo.

Richter35 04-04-2007 12:09 AM

he's basically ganna get between 3-4 mill, (see miller, ryan) which i think we have plenty of cap space with weekes/ozo coming off the books to accomodate

No. The only restrictions are on the first contract the player signs.

If I were a Ranger fan, I'd be thrilled to see that type of deal. Four and a half million a year for a guy who figures to be one of the league's best starters for a long time would be robbery. Just think with inflation, by 2015, roughly half way through the contract, comparables will be making somewhere around $10-12 million.

That deal will probably turn out very well for the Islanders long term, IMO, but I'd be more willing to give it to Lundqvist than DiPietro. Sure, it is a very big risk, but it could be a major steal for them.

I only hope that the Flyers don't throw a 8m offer sheet his way.

Which would make 5 (wasn't it 5) first rounders for us and we still have Montoya. I would prefer keeping Henke though

There's not a single athlete, let alone an NHL goalie, who is worth signing to a 15-year deal. None. Nada. There are just way too many things that can happen to completely f--- up their career.

If a team does it, it won't be the Flyers. They just signed Biron to a 2-year deal worth $3.5 per year last week.

Finest 04-04-2007 09:19 AM

I think other teams will try to sign him(who wouldnt)but it seems to me that he enjoys being a Ranger and living in NYC, so going with that I can see the Rangers offering him a 3-4mil deal and him signing on the dotted line.

Yeah, something like that.

eco's bones 04-04-2007 01:49 PM

If we can get him signed for between 3-4 million--we definitely should go for it. Don't be surprised if it's a little bit higher than that--especially if we go deep into the playoffs. This guy looks to me to be an elite goaltender. Definitely top 5 at his position in the leauge--arguably as good as any goalie anywhere right now. Of course he has not won anything besides an Olympic goal medal and a couple Swedish Elite Leauge championships and maybe a European Championship (not sure of that) but give him time--he's only 24. Length of contract is another item and I'd like to see 4 years at the least.

And all the Islander fans weeped until they realized that for the first time ever, someone had beaten Snow to the punch. :biglaugh:

ECL 04-04-2007 03:02 PM

Don't re-sign him. Didn't you guys see him try to murder the helpless Icegirl last night?

We can't sign a guy who's tried to kill someone before!
