I have said I'd listen to offers for him. It's not my first choice, but this team is still multiple pieces away from being a top contender. He has had a lot of wear and tear in the last 6-7 years playing in so many games when the team has been unable to give him much breathing room in terms of scoring goals; mentally, that has to wear on him. To re-sign him to a 6-8 year deal at or near the cap max doesn't make much sense if you want to build a team around him that can win a Cup.

Overall, this team still needs some rebuilding to do, and trading Lundqvist is a way to continue to do that. He's still young enough that you can get a good return for him, and a team can still sign him to a decent length extension if they so choose.
I'm glad Pat isn't our GM.
