Earlier today, at Yankee Stadium, Jeff Gorton told reporters that there wasn’t really an update on contract extension talks with Henrik Lundqvist other than to say that the two sides have had some conversations.
Gorton said that some issues need to be worked out but “Henrik wants to be here and we want Henrik…at the end of the day… it shouldn’t be too difficult to get a deal….I think we will get one done.”
When asked about a time-table for the contract talks and what pace they are at, Gorton said “I’d prefer to have it done right now and it’s what we are working towards. To be honest, we have had other things going on. Henrik has been in Sweden and we are doing our best to set things up and get going again.
