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.
