Rangers Hope Lundqvist Gets Hot

from the New York Times,

The Rangers hope giving him long-term security helps spur another hot stretch.

Lundqvist’s original contract expired after last season and he signed a one-year contract worth $4.25 million last summer so the Rangers could fit his long-term deal into their salary cap. The two sides could begin negotiating again after Jan. 1.

By then, Lundqvist had his father’s health weighing on his mind as well.

“Henrik is, in our minds, if not the best goaltender in the league, then one of the top two or three,” Coach Tom Renney said. “My feeling is, he’s been able to keep his eye on the ball anyway, with all the issues going on all around him.”
