There is NO WAY this guy could even consider living in another city then NYC during his NHL career... Well,, maybe LA, I could imagine he would like it with the glmaour lifestyle in Hollywood, but our King want to be a winner and that, my friends, are exactly what he/ the rangers are going to be in the years to come!
Yeah, then he could become the King of Kings.

I love the guy to death so I hope he stays, but stuff like this is impossible to predict. There are just way too many factors you have to consider when thinking of the future. Really, how many goalies have played for one team their whole career? Richter was a rarity, and I really hope Lundqvist follows suit. Can't bank on it though

I believe he will probably get a 6-8 year deal sometime in January. So I think he will be here for a while, but who knows what will happen when his first big contract is finished. All I know is outside of a few years of Dunham, our goaltending has been pretty good for almost 20 years. Beezer, Richter, Dunham, Lundqvist.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that they kill us. But that certainly is Lundqvist's weak spot. Then again, it is for lots of goalies.

I think he gets beat with high shots somewhat frequently because he is almost impossible to score on down low. That means he has to face much more high shots than most goalies, and that = more goals given up high. So claiming he is weak at stopping high shots is just not very accurate imo, although I will admit that it wouldn't hurt to work a bit more on that

Of course I'm not 100% certain this is true, but it makes sense

Yeah, it happened, we also did the same with Leetch, I'm not sure but I think we got Markkanen in that one (Leetch's rights that is, don't recall what we got in trading Richter's rights).

lets worry about a solid 5-6 year contract and take it from there. Hank loves playing here and being a rockstar in NYC, if the rangers brass treats him properly as far as the money is concerned, and we continue to improve and be competitive I dont see him going anywhere.

Uhm, no. That would be dumber than the $4MM they gave him this season when they didn't have to.

In sports today, it's very hard for a player to call one team home for the life of his playing days, and that goes for all sports. Sign him to 5/6 years in January and go from there.

I agree. Even with someone thats idolized by his/her fans, they should still feel obliged to earn the big contract. Let Henrik have a 5/6 year deal and come 4 years down the line you can see if he warrants an extension...im sure he will, my point being is what if Di Pietro's desire and skill levels have diminished in 10 years time to the point he's just an average player? the Isles will be saddled with another 20m to pay.

Keep the players motivatd to earn new deals. that goes for Henrik and i'd even have said that about a Gretzky in his heyday.....
