Rangers discussing extension with The King

Lundqvist said his agent and Rangers are talking about an extension, trying to get it done before the season, but we'll see.

Here's the quote

Quote:

"I'm just really excited right now, the camp is around the corner, it's a really good feeling. I don't want any distractions, I just want to go out and play as well as possible. That's why you have an agent, they're talking, we're hopeful of figuring something out. There's no pressure to get it done this summer, because we do have another year on the contract. But yeah, of course it would be nice to have it done."

If you're Lundqvist, you either get the extension done before the season starts or you take out a massive insurance policy.

Do it do it now. We need him. But anyway, you have to imagine this is a big contract in the making.

Look, if The King takes his throne & holds court else where i'm so not worried about it. There are plently of goalies out there that can replace him.

Yes, we can pick a couple with all the consecutive first overall draft picks this team would get without Lundqvist.

No doubt. And one of them will likely work out in a few years.

Scary to think about where this team would have been the last few years without hank.

Even scarier to think where we would be the next few years without him.

They might be a McKinnon, Yakupov, Nugent-Hopkins, Hall richer.

Pure selfishness, Hank.

His agent needs to show his worth to the Rangers both intrinsically to the team as it's built AND comparatively to other goaltenders of the NHL.

Odd some of the best performances have come from goaltenders not really making the big Bucks?

Ray Emery put up ridiculous numbers last season. Signed for sub 2mill.

Brian Elliot also sub 2mill. Halak get 3.8 BOTH are also UFA next summer

Ryan Miller won the Vezina got a 6.3 mill contract and pretty much lost his edge. He is also a UFA this summer

Quick re-upped for the next 6 years? 5.8 mill per season

MAF gets 5 mill per...He is not so good anymore. He is a UFA after next season

Crawford just re-upped at 6mill per season. Yes he won the cup and is real good. But Ray Emery, a guy who also took the Sens to the finals not too long ago granted, but up ridiculous stats playing with the Hawks


Pound for Pound one might surmise a goaltender should never get top dollar. The position just doesnt warrant the cap space.

He must be a really good goaltender. But should you be building your team around him?

I love Henrik, he is THE KING. But if he wants to win the cup, logic might dictate he will take less money. Less in NY less in Detroit less in Pittsburgh. It wont really matter. The trick is which GM has the other pieces to spend the saved cap $$ on.

LOL. GOAT phone correction, I assume.

Yeah, if Hank presses for $8M+, he'll get his $8M+. I could see him taking a little less to help the team, but I don't expect it.

I don't think that's just a goalie thing. I think it's a human condition thing. Mentally, a guy looks at that huge contract and thinks yeah man, I made it, I'm elite!, and a small part of that drive that got them there slips away. Same thing with the sophomore jinx - the kid thinks they've made it, and relaxes a bit, then has a poor second season. Just like the opposite happens when a guy is on the last year of a contract - they realise the big money might be slipping away and step it up for the next paycheque.

That's the main reason I wanted so badly for the league to stick to its guns with that proposal to have contracts cap out at 5 years (actually, I preferred 3, but oh well). Keep the guys hungry and playing hard for their next contract.

And totally agree on your last point - anyone wanting to win a championship needs to be willing to accept less than top dollar.
