Lundqvist is going to get a 7-8 year contract extension for $7M-$8M AAV if he signs one this summer. For all the crap teams we've iced in front of him, wasting years of a true competitor's prime, he isn't going to want to hear the word "discount." All those years of the team counting on Lundqvist so much will build up to a well deserved pay day for Hank. No team depends on one player more than the Rangers. Is such a contract healthy for the Rangers long term? Probably not. I'm slightly more optimistic about Lundqvist's shelf life than most others, but still we don't have a choice on this one.
