Didn't see this posted anywhere, but this is from the Times:

Quote:
[Lundqvist] said contract talks with the Rangers were “volatile,” but that “there’s no pressure to get it done this summer.”
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/26/sp...html?src=rechp

Volatile, sounds promising.

Actually, I think there's a great deal of pressure to get a new contract done. The longer this drags on the more of a distraction it's going to be for the whole organization.

That sounds awful. Things are getting testy and "there's no pressure to get it done this summer" aka, "we're not going to stop posturing and actually get down to this until the last minute, when it's become a tremendous distraction for everyone."

As huge of a Hank fan that I am, no ones irreplaceable. If we wants out and negotiations are as "volatile" as he says they are, adios Lundqvist. Don't let the door hit you in the ass.

What do you expect? Just because negotiations are "volatile" (and let's not forget that English is not Lundqvist's native language) has nothing to do with where Lundqvist wants to play. Negotiations are about give and take and can get very heated.

I can't understand how it could be difficult. "How long, how much?" "ok. We'll make it work."

If that happens, the Rangers might as well tear the whole thing down -- and they never will. So, it'd be in your best interests to root for a return.

Oh Lord! I came back, only to witness the Henrik Lundqvist in Islanders dress again?

Ugh.

I really look forward to seeing Hank playing in Sochi 2014. He'll stay a Ranger at a fair price, if he knows kharma ...


As for the season and the new system. The way I understand it the Rangers players were stuck for 6 years (more or less) with mostly strickter defensive systems. Now with AV in the picture, we really have a two way guy. Both aspect are very important to his way.

I see a lot of goals held back from the previous seasons and the team could have an offensive breakout. The pieces are there. Let's see if they mold well.

Yeah, I wouldn't be too excited for that.

Hopefully Lundqvist stays, just don't want to see the price on that.

Maybe we should wait until they play a game before saying their the same team with the same bad habits and same excuses. I'm not expecting anything this season either though.

I would agree if I hadn't already paid for this seasons tickets.

I hope he comes back. I'm preparing myself in case he bolts or is traded. It's the realitly that we live in.

did I just mess everything up?

Volatile, sounds promising.
IE: They won't give me all the money I want!!!

Lets hope Henrik doesn't end up one of those.
