THIS SECTION is all about Lundqvist’s future.

On Insider Trading last night on TSN, Bob McKenzie said that it is going to be big money for the Rangers to get Lundqvist to sign a contract extension.

He notes that Lundqvist likely views himself in the same way that Evgeni Malkin did, franchise player, but the Rangers are likely to counter his high demands by saying that any money they give to him is money that they can’t spend on his defensemen and players to play in front of him.

McKenzie adds “by the same token, I think they understand his value so it’s going to be an interesting and fascinating dynamic to see how high the metre goes.”
