(12/1/13) 8:24PM: In the NY Post, Larry Brooks writes that the negotiations between the Rangers and Henrik Lundqvist on a new contract are not believed to have progressed much since Lundqvist stopped talking about it publicly at the start of the season.

Brooks said that he brought up the topic with Lundqvist a few weeks ago and was “firmly” shot down by the Rangers goalie.

He adds that he can’t think of a similar situation in the NHL and that normally “marquee” players get new contracts done quickly.

Brooks says, “This one seems odd. It has from the start that didn’t start nearly as early as it should have.”
