from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
Henrik Lundqvist chose his words very carefully yesterday when the subject of a potential contract extension this summer was raised at yesterday’s breakup day, so I sure won’t put any words in his mouth.
But know this: The words did not come out of the Rangers’ franchise player’s mouth that would have put owner Jim Dolan, general manager Glen Sather, coach John Tortorella and the entirety of Rangers’ Nation at ease.
Those words would have been: “Yes, my intention is to sign a long-term extension and play my entire career in New York.”
Instead the words from the goaltender, who has one year remaining on his deal and is thus eligible to sign an extension on July 5, were these:
“I’m going to talk to my agent and will see. I [have] had such a great time in New York. They’ve treated me really well and gave me the opportunity to play.
“It’s been a lot of fun. I have one more year on my contract and we’ll see.”
