While losing Lundqvist would suck, as he's the best goalie in the league, it doesn't automatically equal the years of 'nothingness' that people keep alluding too. As has been mentioned, if his contract requests are too high/too long, losing him will be the right decision, even if we do end up spending a few years down the bottom of the conference
He will get pretty much whatever he asks for. Whether that be a 2 year deal or an 8 year deal for any amount of money up to ~8M/season, the organization will do whatever it can to extend him. He is only going to be "lost" if he wants out of NY.
