That's because the Rangers gave Lundqvist the 7th year. The team wasn't playing well. Lundqvist lost a few starts to Talbot. The media started speculating about Lundqvist's future. Lundqvist was terrible and the Rangers need him to be great. What did Sather say in the Lundqvist press conference? Go carry us now. It was a joke but its the truth. The Rangers had a three hour meeting with Newport the night after losing to Winnipeg the previous night(Monday). The Rangers agreed to give Lundqvist the 7th year. The contract was announced on Wednesday morning. Talbot got the start against Winnipeg. Lundqvist looked lost talking to the media earlier that afternoon. They didn't want to give him 7. The Rangers wanted to nip it in the bud before the season was lost.
