07:28 AM ET 10.03 | When it comes to negotiations, Henrik Lundqvist has declared himself a scratch. [Lundqvist] is removing himself from conversations with management regarding a contract extension, the Rangers' franchise goaltender said following Wednesday's practice. "For me, all my focus is going to be on hockey; on the game and winning," Lundqvist said before the Blueshirts' flight to Phoenix for Thursday's season-opener. "That's all I care about. If the Rangers and my representatives talk, that's fine, but me personally, I am not going to get involved." Lundqvist's representatives at Newport Sports have been in a steady dialogue with team management since early last month, but sources have told The Post little progress has been made in sealing a deal that would keep the King from becoming an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Ed Zachary. If Slats gave Gomez that much money how much will he give Henrik?

Speaking of money from what I saw of the Leafs/Flyers game Davie spent well this summer.

I hope Jimmy likes ballcaps.

Henrik Lundqvist misses "Three Fingers." Trade him to Vancouver for Luongo, I say. :-)
