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.
Hasn't happened yet. At every contract opportunity for Lundqvist to date, he has received top dollar (and delivered).
Despite goalies playing the most minutes, they still haven't achieved true franchise salary as of yet. I would be intrigued to see a Baseball-esque WAR goalie value compared to salary (how many more wins over typical .913 goalie).
