Lundqvist RFA 08

Seeing as his contract is up after next season. What kind of deal do you belive he will get? A long term like Brodeur or crazy one like DiPietros and for how much. I can see them trying to lock him up long term so he never ever gets close to the UFA market.

Apparently Lundqvist is an RFA after this season as he only sign a 2 year entry level contract due to the fact that he signed at an older age.

The playoffs and next season as well as Montoya's progress next season will all be part of the dicision making process.

Yeah I was wondering about this. I think he will get a monster deal, close to the max if not at it. It may behoove the Rangers to make a run for the cup next year while Jagr is still here and Henrik is underpaid.

I think the fact that he's only been in the league two years, and struggled at times this year, will lead to a more reasonable contract.

He hasn't been around long enough to demand the max.

3 year contract around $4 mill or so, and then after that is when he'll go for the money.

4 years at 5.5M.

I would not offer more than 4 years. Once he's 29 and in his prime and the goaltending battle is over with him and Montoya, give him another long contract.

I'd say 6 years with these payouts:

$3.5, $3.5, $4.5, $4.5, $5.5, $5.5 for an average cap hit of $4.5

If he consistently plays this many games every season, at this level, I think we're talking a 5 year contract about $5 million.

Lundqvist's deal is up this summer.He was 23 when he signed his entry level contract

Quote:
Players who sign their first contract at age 18-21 are required to sign three-year Entry Level contracts; players age 22-23 will be required to sign two-year deals; and players age 24 will be required to sign a one-year Entry Level contract.
http://www.nhl.com/nhlhq/cba/index.html

Henrik isn't eligible for UFA status for another 2 seasons

Quote:
Unrestricted Free Agency - For the 2005-06 season, a player age 31 with four accrued seasons will be an unrestricted free agent; in 2006-07, a player age 29 with four accrued seasons or with eight accrued seasons; in 2007-08, a player age 28 with four accrued seasons or with seven accrued seasons; beginning in 2008-09 and for the duration of the agreement, a player age 27 with four accrued seasons or with seven accrued seasons will be an unrestricted free agent. For purposes of qualifying for unrestricted free agency, the 2004-05 cancelled season will be counted as a year of accrued service.
http://www.nhl.com/nhlhq/cba/index.html

Two examples

Before training camp,Ryan Miller signed a 3 year deal/$8 million and Miikka Kiprusoff signed a 3 year deal/$10 million after the lockout

Both Miller and Kiprusoff have experienced playoff success while Henrik hasn't so far

Ryan Miller money is more than fair for Lundqvist

3 years/$8 million is more than fair

Like Burd said earlier in the thread, I think this stretch run and (fingers crossed here) these playoffs will go a long way in deciding. With the performance he has put on since the all star break this year though, he definitely is in a position to ask for a big deal.

Regardless, he deserves and is going to get a healthy raise when this contact is up, and it will definitely limit what management can do, as opposed to now when the team's best player isnt even making 1 mm.

I would sign him for 2 years, actually. Wouldn't that bring him to the season before UFA eligibility? He'd have 4 years of play and I thought that UFA eligibility was 5 years or so.

it's four years as long as your 27 (which he would be).

Sign Briere or Drury this offseason I say, this team could be a cup contender next year. It is a huge advantage in this cap system having a player like Henrik earing as little as he currently does. Exploit that while you can.

Open the piggy bank...

Luckily, Henrik LOVES NYC.

I don't see him testing the open Market

I don't see the Rangers letting it get that far either.

Its not like the old days though. There is a cap number to consider. And love NY or not a pro athlete only has so many cracks at the big money contract in his career.

Best thing would be ok money $4-5m, long term, and a NTC.

Just dont give him a Khabebulin type of contract even if he would be worth it. Even when the cap goes up this team needs some extra cash to fill some holes.

Lundqvist should really hit his prime in 5-7 years

I think a 3-5 year deal at around 4mil a year would be reasonable....
