I don't think Lundqvist will re-sign during the season and it will lead to a stressful offseason, but ultimately he will be on this team for years to come.
We're not talking about trading a signed Lundqvist we're talking about trading him as a UFA if the indication is he wants to test free agency or doesn't want to sign here. In that case it's essential to trade him instead of letting him leave for free.
