I don't think it's a smart idea.

**** is right. Hopefully this can get taken care of. Signing Henrik should be first priority, over Shanahan and Avery.

They must sign him for a long term deal. At least 5 yrs.

If someone turned down the 5-7 years at 4.75-5.25m per as mentioned in the article, that's a big mistake. I think both those numbers are fair given our current salary cap situtation.

A player can and should ask for as much as he can get just like all of us would do given the same situation. When you go to work you owe it to yourself and your family to get the best deal possible. It is not Henrik's fault that Sather brought in two high priced free agents and affected the Cap.

Nevertheless, I assume they can work something out that both sides will be okay with.

Given our current situation? What has Drury done for the team? Knocked us out of the playoffs. What has Henrik done? Been the backbone of this team the past two years.

Lundqvist isn't a UFA, he is more deserving of big money than Drury if you just look at what he brings to the team, but you don't pay a guy like Drury what he is worth, you pay more than the next team.

I know Henrik is RFA but that doesn't mean that the management didn't screwed up July 1. Don't get me wrong, I like the players, but not their contracts. When you pay two new guys over 7 million a piece you've got to expect that your franchise goalie wants a piece of the pie too.

I wouldn't get too worried about this, I believe this is more Brooks looking to make a headline, the deadline is still two days away for this arbitration and as Henrik's agent hinted himself, Sather has always been slow in negotiating There is no way that Sather would sign Drury and Gomez if he didn't believe that he could lock up the franchise goaltender.

Yeah, one day after we have quotes from Henrik about how excited he is over the signings and how he expects things to get worked out on his contract, we have Brooks casting doom and gloom?

Nothing in that article, besides Brooks' own idle speculation, really indicated that the Rangers would be taking Lundqvist to arbitration. There were no quotes from Sather, just Henrik's agent talking in some general terms about the situation.

And what does Drury have to do with Sather?

Yeah, really. This is shameful rumormongering by Brooks.

Henke is the last person I'm worried about.

Arbitration is a bad idea. Creates bad blood between player and team.

BTW to those who didn't read the article, it is the Rangers who would take him to arbitration, not Henrik taking the Rangers... I think it's bs.

Henke is the single most important Ranger!Without Henke, the July 1 signings are meaningless. The team can't legitimately compete without Lundqvist

I'm pretty sure the organization knows how important he is. Therefore, I have no worries about him being signed.

The article did not say Lundqvist was going to file for salary arb.Meehan has already said they are not going to file.The Rangers taking Lundqvist to salary arb is to guarantee he will be at training camp.IF they do that
