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.
Not sure he'll get much of a raise...his cap hit is 6.875M now. Perhaps he'll get a bump up to 7M...but for the max of 8 years. Don't really see them going much more than that...perhaps 7.25M, 7.5M max. Again, he's still got a year left on his current deal...an 8 year contract worth 60M is pretty rich for a 32 year old.
