He is in a fairly good spot here.
I wouldnt be surprised at all if part of his negotiation is a frank discussion with Rangers management about the plans going forward. And, in all honesty, what can Glen Sather sell him on? "We're going to buy out the guy that was supposed to be your #1 center, but Derek Stepan could be one, and if not, we'll find another one." Thrilling.

And yes, the Rangers went to the conference finals last season and the 2nd round this year......with Lundqvist playing like the best goaltender in the world. Is there a definitive improvement plan? Because even with those results, this sure does look like a team with major roster, coaching, and managerial issues.
