NYR are signing tough contracts. Dubinsky, Del Zotto, McDonagh, Stepan and co. It's not exactly straight forward in all of these situations. The comparable, the bridge vs. long term, the post ELC considerations, the precedence, the increase in cap hit. The penguins didn't have to deal with this since both of their players were already being paid $8M+ or something around there.
should have made this more clear. I was talking about Lundqvist and being far apart as reported.
