He will sign a contract to keep him here for the remainder of his career, and will play out here. His goal is to win a cup HERE, not anywhere else.
Be thankful you have a LOYAL competitor of this nature as a franchise goaltender. We got lucky coming from Mike Richter, and only having to deal a short time between him and finding Lundqvist. I have a feeling we aren't going to be so lucky next time.
Enjoy it while it lasts, and stop the ridiculous talk of him going to a 'cup contender', or wanting to leave New York. It's so ridiculous and far from everything he believes in, and has said in countless interviews.
Some great players never win a cup, its just the way it is. He is determined though, and we still have many more years to try and get it done, even though the window is closing a bit.
He's going nowhere, Ranger for life. More importantly to him, he's a NY'er. You can't put a pricetag on that.
Best posts in this thread. Also a nod to whoever mentioned how mentally deflating it is to HAVE TO give up 2 or less goals at a chance to win, most of the time 1 goal. It's definitely taking its toll.
Lundqvist will be remembered as one of the best Rangers ever and its not even up for debate. People who rag on him are uneducated morons. He's done more for this franchise than anyone seems to give him credit for. Like it was said by nevesis, shut up and enjoy it while it lasts because the likelihood we see a goaltender of his caliber play for this team again is not very likely.
