As far as Lundqvist goes, i've said it before I will say it again if he is going to want a max deal or even somthing close to a max deal than Sather has to deal him. It wouldn't be the first time Sather has traded away a star play (Gretzky anyone). One player can not handcuff the franchise for years to come in a cap era & expect to have a winning team built around him & expect to compete for a Cup every year.
Rask imploded? Completely disagree with that analysis. A puck was centered in front after the Bruins couldn't get it out of their own zone on the first one. They were on their heels on the second goal, a deflection off of the post and a defenseman was beaten to the puck/had bad positioning. What about that was "imploding"?
With respect to Gretzky, depending on who you ask, that decision was above his head and Edmonton ownership pulled the trigger and needed the funds.
Either way, more importantly, I agree with Brooklyn Ranger. A deal will get done. Will be max in years and for a little more money than some people on here are comfortable with but it will get done.
