NY Rangers' Lundqvist: It's 'Hard to Picture' Playing Elsewhere

New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist says "it's hard to picture" himself playing for another team.

New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist finds it difficult to imagine himself playing for a different team

Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News quotes Lundqvist who says "It's hard to picture myself playing elsewhere" on Sweden's SVT Sport. 

In Leonard's own words, it seems Lundqvist has taken on a firmer stand after the departure of former head coach John Tortorella to the Vancouver Canucks. 

"Lundqvist's lukewarm response to the prospect of an extension on Memorial Day following the Blueshirts' most recent disappointing season turned out to be more of an indictment of the previous coach, John Tortorella, than of the organization."

The Rangers and Lundqvist have had talks about a new eight-year deal. Assistant general manager Jeff Gordon maintains the feelings between the two sides are mutual, per the NHL's official website. 

"Henrik wants to be here and we want Henrik...it shouldn't be too difficult to get a deal...I think we will get one done."

Lundqvist says he will maintain his focus for the upcoming season regardless whether a new deal is struck or not. 

"If a new contract is signed or not before the season starts, I can't let it affect my game.

"It's obviously going to be a very important part of my career, this next contract, there's no reason for me to deny that." 

If Lundqvist and the Rangers agree to the eight-year extension, the estimated value may very well be within the $8.5 to $9.5 million range per year, says Larry Brooks of the New York Post via CBS Sports. 

Lundqvist, the 2012 Vezina Trophy winner, led all NHL goaltenders with 24 wins in the 2012-13 season. He also finished with a .926 save percentage and a 2.05 GAA, per NHL.com.

NHL scores: Reimer, Pavelec turn in brilliant performances in backwards night of hockey

Nov 2 2014 7:00am CST | Source: SBNation

Everything you thought about the NHL was wrong. If nothing else, the 2014-15 NHL season has challenged our notions of what to expect night in and night out in hockey. That unpredictability was in full effect on Saturday, as multiple teams and individuals defied what we've come to expect from them during the last few seasons. In Toronto, the perennial contender Blackhawks used a relentless attack to try and wear down a normally suspect Maple Leafs blu ...

About last night …

Oct 25 2014 11:07pm CDT | Source: Hockey Inside/Out

When the siren sounds in Calgary Tuesday night, your Montreal Canadiens will have hit the 10-game mark in their schedule. Their record, at worst, will be 7-3. But even though western road trips, on either side of the border, are always tough, perhaps we should banish worst-case scenarios from our thinking and just live in the moment. After their 3-1 win over the Rangers Saturday night, the Canadiens are basking in their best early-season moments since the 1961-’62 seas ...

Sidney Crosby, Jonathan Toews and Henrik Lundqvist are all known to be great leaders in the dressing room. During their recent roundtable chat with George Stroumboulopoulos, they talked about the difficulties of the role, and much more. What scares you on the ice? Sidney Crosby: Probably missing a chance.

Despite Win, Boston Bruins Goalie Tuukka Rask Still Searching for Vezina Form

Oct 21 2014 9:52pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Tuukka Rask’s first regulation win since opening night was anything but a smooth 60-minute ride. The Boston Bruins’ 5-3 win over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday had a convincing conclusion, but not before an iffy first 40 minutes. By repelling all 10 of San Jose’s third-period shots, Rask kept the adversary off the board for an entire regulation stanza for just the second time in his last 12 tries. His 31 total stops gave him a single-night save percentage of .912, easily his best in his l ...
