Or, maybe Lundqvist's camp put out a high number like that, implying to management that it's not his intention of staying with the team?

Basically saying, "I'll sign here for a King's ransom (no pun intended), and only in that situation, otherwise I'll sign at a lower cap hit elsewhere."

It just sounds like to me he doesn't want to stay here past his contract and coming up with a contract like that is evidence of it. It sounds better than coming outright and saying "I don't think this team will compete for the Stanley Cup in my tenure here."
