While his level of consistency since 2005/06 has been remarkable, his overall game hasn't really improved since then either.

Considering his age and his style which really isn't conducive to remaining productive into his twilight years, I wouldn't go longer than 5-6 years @ $7-7.5 mil.

Now about softies; that goal he let in the other nite was inexcusable!
It is excusable. You know why? Because Lundqvist's track record over 8 years is beyond stellar. But more importantly, every goalie in the league throughout the history of the game, has let in a couple of those per season.
