The Rangers and goaltender Henrik Lundqvist have agreed on a new multi-year contract, reports the New York Daily News.

According to the newspaper, the deal is thought to be for six years at about $6.5 million per year.

I'd imagine when the price for an "elite" level goalie goes up it will increase the price on "good" goalies like Huet. Their numbers aren't that different.

Thing is, the price for "elite" goalies hasn't gone up. 6.5 million is pretty standard for the "elite" goalies.

Again, this has no effect on Huet.

while i agree that huet and lundquist arent in the same league what so ever, the lack of quality goaltenders available as UFA's does increase his value since the best available is no longer available

If Lundquist was better than Huet would the Rangers not be challenging Ottawa for the conference lead instead of battling for a playoff spot??

With the Jagr Drury Gomez Lunquist contracts will cash strap the Rangers the next 3-4 years.

Meh... not really. Top-teir goalies get top money.

Huet will get between 3.5-4.5 million a year.

Lundqvist can backstop nearly all games in a season. Huet has yet to show he can be in goals for more than 45 games AND have a good season / be consistent.
Lundqvist has no confidence problems, he can come back from a loss. Huet can come back from a loss... but not always... Sometime a big loss will put him on a skid and will have his confidence shaken for 5-10 games.

etc.

I wouldn't sign him at that amount, personally. He's half of a 1st goalie (40 games), so he deserves half of a 1st goalie's money. I'd give him maximum 3M. More than that? Go away

I don't understand how the Rags can keep giving all this cash and still be under the cap.

Lundqvist is better then Huet IMO.How much will Huet ask for?4 a year?At that price he can go sign with another team I feel comfortable with Price and Halak

3.5 - 4 million tops from the habs imo. He'll get more from another team though.

Well Huet is the starting goalie for a 67 point team with a 20-11 record, 2.49 GAA and a .918 save percentage

and

Lundqvist is the starting goalie for a 63 point team with a 24-21 record, 2.37 GAA and a .906 save percentage.

I think you could compare the two somehow based on this? I hope you're not going to tell me the reason is because Pleks > Gomez and Kovalev > Jagr and Koivu > Drury.

I mean if Kiprusoff got 6 years for $35M... you have to think Huet is worth more than $3.5M per season?

yeah but the point is Gainey doesn't care if YOU are confortable with two unproven inexperienced goalies. Odds are high that Gainey, Mr. Conservative himself, will never take this type of chance and will sign Huet at 4-4,5 mil without flinching.

I think he'll certianly get that on the open market. Whether or not the Habs give him that is a different story...

I agree. I say we just go with Price like the Pens went with Fleury and the Isles went with Dipietro. Let's dump as much old deadwood (Koivu, Dandenault, Smoke, Breezer, Huet) as we can and just play our young guys (Pleks, Kost bros, Higgins, Chipchura, Markov, Komi, O'Byrne, Gorges, Lats, Lapierre, MaxPac, McDonagh, Valentenko).

Sign / trade for a decent second line center (Jeff Carter? Veteran?).

Since when is Huet old dead wood...Since when does a half season mean that a players like Koivu is finished...and Dandemault is actually playing up to his skill level...he's not a first liner, but he was never intended to be either...

Typical HFboard post unfortunately.

You haven't watched Rangers game this year, right?

Lundquist would probably get run out of town here to give room to a 20yrs old rookie goaltender.

no contest.

lundquist can play 70 games!
he started 50 in his first season with an amazing win record. 70 in his second season still with a winning record, and now this season he is at 50 starts and still has a winning record!

Huet is no comparison! Huet has yet to prove he is a reliable STARTING goalie. as of late he has shown that he is WEAK! there is no way huet will get anywhere near that kind of money!

Finished in a sense their salaries and current abilities are not compatible with a young and upcoming team based around Markov, Komi, Pleks and Kost. I wouldn't take it too personally, but Koivu is a good player, but not a top-line center any longer. Huet is good, but is he worth $5M a year to us? Then what do you do with Price? Same for Dandenault. Could we get somebody younger and cheaper to fill his minutes?

Your wrong, Regardless of skill all salaries especially in the same position (Forward/Defence/Goalie) are all quite relative, Huet is a good goalie maybe not as good as Lundqvist, but it will still inflate his value.
