Thanks to reader Tom for the tip on the Swedish newspaper’s Aftonbladet report that the Rangers are looking to sign Henrik Lundqvist to a seven-year contract extension worth $32 million.
We’ll have to leave it as speculation for now seeing how the Rangers have yet to comment. What I will say is I would hardly be surprised.
For all the talk about Shanahan, Nylander, Drury, and Gomez, the single most important item on the Rangers’ agenda should be locking in Lundqvist before his contract is up. And there’s no time like right now.
Plenty more to talk about. By the way, I’ll be on RNN tonight to wrap up the Rangers season. Once I know what time I’ll pass it along so you can be sure to mock me en masse.
