n the NY Times, Jeff Klein spoke with Henrik Lundqvist who once again reiterated that he doesn’t feel any pressure and doesn’t want to put any pressure on the Rangers to get a contract extension done.
Lundqvist told Klein that the talks are “volatile” and that once the season starts, if he isn’t signed, he won’t be speaking about his contract.
In February 2008, while on a one-year contract signed after his entry-level deal expired, Lundqvist signed a six-year extension.
At the time, Lundqvist said “We talked about this during the summer, that we would sign for one year and then start talking at the start of ’08. Nobody really wanted to wait until the summer. We wanted to get it done.”
