I don't see the Rangers being dissatisfied with the contract they gave to Lundqvist. It isn't as if the Kings are extending an old veteran on the downside of his career or an unproven netminder. It's a goalie who is years away from entering his prime who has been getting better every year and has been the most consistent performer on the team.

Given the comments made by Lombardi, he seems to indicate that the talks are just a formality, which leads me to believe that they already may have a dollar figure in mind and that the term of the deal is being negotiated.
Really Ziggy? Really? Your better than this. You know the Preds are a budget team, that 1.5-2 mil that Rinne is getting paid is 1.5-2m that could be going to a real first line center or a real first line winger...Or hell keeping their 2 best players....

I agree with others, goalies to anything over 5 years is just bad news...especially a goalie like Quick that depends so much on his athletic ability.
