Bottom line, it is next to impossible to ice a balanced, deep roster with 12% of the cap sitting between the pipes.
I agree, and I hope Lundqvist recognizes this, is willing to leave money on the table, and re-signs. The Jets went through this with Darelle Revis (though Lundqvist is infinitely more likeable). You need offensive firepower (talking like 6 guys who can put up 40+ points). Especially so in the playoffs when one or two go down with injuries.
