I'd reckon it'd be hard for anyone to do anything that detracts from what they've been committed to for the last decade.

Surprised to hear him say that.

Not that I think he envisions himself playing and living in Buffalo, Pittsburgh or Winnipeg, but at the end of the season, he seemed very cautious not to give any leverage away.

No I mean the kind of people who photoshop Lundqvist's head on an Islander jersey.

And yes, of course I'm kidding.

No take-backsies.

Our relationship has soured after you eliminated Boyle from the elimination game anyways.

It's good to hear this.

And at 7.5 per over 8 years he can make that happen.

Get it done Hank

While I would pay Hank a ton, I get the feeling that he's going to take a fair contract to prove to everyone how much he really wants to be here. We'll see... I still stand by my opinion though that I would give him 8M no question.

Leverage? Do you think the Rangers dropping that line in negotiations is going to seal the deal? You think it'd stop other teams from throwing a boatload of money at the best goalie on earth?

saying the Rangers have "leverage" with Lundqvist, is like saying the Yankees have leverage with Cano

If the Rangers don't believe Lundqvist sees signing with another team as a legitimate option, it will of course have a big impact on negotiations.

I think Hank simply wants to see how things go with AV for a while. If he gets canned and replaced by John Muckler half-way through, I'd say he might walk.

I think a tremendous amount has been interpreted into that one question out of the blue (if he was willing to negotiate a new contract in advance). Its asked like 13 month's before his contract is up. He was obviously not prepared for it nor really had thought the situation through. He says only good things about the organization, nothing negative. Then he laughs and says that he has to talk with his agent.

I am not saying that he gave the response you get from 10 other players in that situation. But that is what people really are basing their reaction to it from, not what he actually said and did not say.

These guys are often machines when you ask them questions. Hank isn't quite like that. And he also seem like the type who could think alot about what to eat for lunch or what cloath to wear. Did he really think more about keep playing for his current team than anyone would? Or did he just -- out loud -- go like "what do I want to do the rest of my life eehehhhh iiii is there things I need to consider here?"
