I would give Henrik the 8 year deal. As long as the last two years pay are equal to the AAV.
This will prevent the recapture penalties in case Lundquist retires. By that time, If Hank is getting paid 8M+ per, and is too old to play at this level, I would consider this his bonus. Most great players wont be able to perform at the level they are at now at the end of there contracts. This is the price we have to pay. Like I said before, as long as the last two years of the contract are equal to the AAV, I am cool with 8 years.

The team really needs to lock up Girardi and Cally. The longer they wait, the harder its gonna be.
