He will paid handsomely and will be locked up for the rest of his career with this extension.
I don't think the fact that people who have enough to continue with their lifestyle for the rest of their life (and well beyond) comes into play during a contract negoitation. When their agents are sitting across the table from their boss, they want what they are worth now.

Lundqvist will get paid something close to what he is--one of the best goaltenders in the NHL and an important, perhaps the most important, piece of what Sather hopes is a championship team. He's going to get a raise. And Sather will ultimately come to an agreement, because he needs Lundqvist.
