According to Nick Cotsonika at Yahoo! Sports, Henrik Lundqvist says his agent and the Rangers are trying to get an extension done before the season.
Lundqvist added that he wants to focus on hockey during the season, but did leave open possibility of talks continuing if need be.
…so bascially nothing new.
…having said that, it would be a huge relief to get this out of the way before the season. The longer this situation lingers on the more questions Lundqvist will receive during the season. We need him focused on winning games, not a contract extension. And God forbid if the Rangers struggle out of the gate. The New York press would be relentless.
…speaking of getting a contract done before the season. Stepan anyone?
