That would be a huge stand-up, classy move, one that the Rangers should never forget if he does, and more importantly if they find a way to win. But that remains to be seen. I think Henrik is such a competitor and wants to win so badly, this has to enter into his mind. I dont want the Rangers to insult him, but I'm hoping he wont get a Malkin type cap-killing deal either.

We'll see what happens I guess.
He's going to get a raise. How much of a raise remains to be seen. I think we'll see a deal in the range of 7.5-8.5 per. 7.5 is fair for a player of Hank's caliber with a deal starting at 32.

If Lundqvist wants to win as badly as we think, he'll be reasonable on this deal. 8 more years as a Ranger to cement his legacy in NY with 17 years and a chance to win a Cup and finish what he started will hopefully be enough to give NYR a bit of a discount.
