Of course the Rangers have to do whatever is necessary to re-sign franchise goalie Henrik Lundqvist, the single greatest reason for the franchise's turnaround from the playoff-free years of 1998-2004, even if that means a max eight-year, $80 million deal. Right? There's no denying Lundqvist's value to the Rangers. But there is evidence to suggest overspending on a goalie, even one as great as Lundqvist, a sure-fire future Hall of Famer, is not a wise investment.
