I'd be shocked if he asked for less than 8.5 initially. I think they'll settle above 7.5 and maybe a bit below 8. Realistically, Lundqvist should be the highest paid player on the team, and I wouldn't be surprised if he gets more than Nash. Regardless of Nash being 25 when his deal was signed and Lundqvist 32, and position players making more than goalies, it wouldn't be a major surprise if Hank wants 8.
