Over-payment in my mind but there really wasn't another direction to go other than not signing him and doing a rebuild so it is what it is. Time to move on and get the team in front of him in order. Because as we've seen he can't do it alone.

Good find.

Another lockout before this contract expires maybe means he'll be compliance buyout? Can't rule it out.

He loved the team and city so much that he didn't give them any discount.

Year 1: 8.09 million

Year 5: 6.66 million
Year 6: 6.34 million
Year 7: 6.04 million

I posted this in the "Salary Cap" thread, as well:




Under the most conservative of estimates, Lundqvist's caphit will go from 12.5% of the total cap to 8.5% during the length of the deal.

2010: CHI, 3.54, PHI, 3.30
2009: PIT, 3.29, DET, 3.30
2008: DET: 3.27, PIT, 3.05
2007: ANA, 2.76, OTT, 2.95
2006: EDM, 2.92, CAR, 2.92

Yes, so there's possibly one year that could come off the books.

No, he wouldn't. He would not even come close to that figure. Nobody in their right mind is paying a goaltender that much money.

Lundqvist has it pretty sweet in NY. He is the best athlete in the city, he sells his own merchandise, and he can go out in public without getting recognized most of the time. He is not going to find that anywhere else.

Absolutely excrutiating. Maybe the worst contract Sather has dolled out in his entire tenure.

That's just simply wrong. Teams with the space would throw boatloads of cash at him, and if they don't they'd find a way. The Isles, Edmonton, Pittsburgh, Washington all come to mind.

He wants to win yes but money still talks.

It is too much for even the best goaltender in the league, which BTW, is not Lundqvist.

I bet the Isles would. The Oilers too.

He got this contract more because of his face and not the skills.
