They are due tomorrow, so they'll be announced sometime before then, but most of the qualifying offers have been already made and just not announced yet.

Now one wonder if his brother has got one too, or if Ranger's decided they wouldn't bother

Heh. Yeah, I'm sure the Rangers won't qualify Henrik Lundqvist.

Just as he has said in every interview the last month or so.

He doesn't bother much about money or years, he just don't want the risk of getting back to Des Moines.

And if he can't get a oneway contract he intends to go back to Frölunda.

I think it's just down to some good ole' haggling, either he gets a oneway deal or they sugar it with incentives and cash.

I'm sure he'll get a one-way deal, but he might have to take the league minimum to get it like Miettinen, Kapanen, and Tjärnqvist have in past.

His agent was just quoted saying "now it's just a bit of negotiation".

I think we can forget about Joel coming back home, except over the summer. They'll work out some form of deal.

And I have to say that I'm almost as glad either way, I'd love to have him back, but at the same time I wish him a nice NHL career.

I hope he comes back...










...in ten years or so after a long and successful career in the NHL.

Anyone read the interview with Lundqvist on the DS homepage.
Standard stuff, but this was hilarious:

Quote:
I remember when Patrik Stefan missed the open net in that wild game in Edmonton in January. We came back here for practice and some of the guys played a funny joke on him. They took one of his sticks and taped another blade on top of the original blade so it was twice as big. It was a huge, thick, double blade. He went out with that stick and played with it for a little bit and took some shots. He was really mad and embarrassed at first after that game, but eventually we helped him laugh about it. I think he can laugh about it today.

Lil's summer update

Bad us over here, good Joel and Dallas it seems

http://gp.se/gp/jsp/Crosslink.jsp?d=498&a=357412

The intresting bits go:
Quote:
Forget about Joel Lundqvist in SEL next season. Everything points to Dallas. The contract is close to be signed.

The rugged center has stated that it will be back to Frölunda if he risks getting sent back to the farm team.

But GP has learned that the negotiations between Lundqvist and Dallas is about a oneway contract.
- I would be shocked if it's a twoway contract that we're offering, since I know that he's in the coaches plans for the next season, says a source with good connections within the team that GP has been in contact with.

According to the source the negotiations are ongoing and should soon be finished, possibly already at the end of this week.

Lundqvist himself is forbidden to comment on this since it's Dallas - not the player - who should report on signed contracts.
"a source with good connections within the team"
Hmm, if I was a swedish journalist that wanted information regarding Dallas Stars the first one to call would be Ulf Dahlen.

I'm excited about Lundqvist. I think he will be a good player for the Stars for several years. I wish the Stars would try him out in a top-6 role though. I could see him being a similar player to Brenden Morrow down the line. Good offensive skills, but will still be a physical presence and do the dirty work.

Lundqvist was a point per game guy in Iowa last season and had 10 points in nine playoff games. Also don't forget he had two goals in the Stars/Canucks playoff series.

Joel definitely has top 6 potential. I am glad the Stars re-signed him.

Whoho, he's not signed yet.
We're still waiting for confirmation.
He's got a QO, but that's two-way according to the rules, and as long as it is, we have a chance of getting him back.

Not that it will happen, he'll sign a one-way contract any day now. But don't take our dream away until it has happened ok?

He signed a two-year, one way contract worth $700,000 and $750,000 a few hours ago...

Crap!

Well, congrats to Dallas and Joel

Edit:
Henrik 4.25 + .725 = 4.975
Less than the Sedin twins ...

Congratulations Joel!

To be honest I'm glad it was a two year deal and not a one year deal. As much as I'd like to see him back I think he belongs in the NHL for many years to come.

We could have needed his clutch play in Frölunda this coming season(in the SEL playoffs, he allways raised his game, and played kind of like Claude Lemieux, without the cheapness). Anyway, congratulations on Joel, i bet there are very few guys in the national hockey league that put in the same effort every shift that he does. It will be very interesting to follow his development the coming season.
