Take it for what it's worth:

Funny...that didnt seem to effect him in the gold medal game or the SEL playoffs when he pretty much broke every goalie record. I wouldnt get too worried about this.

DutchShamrock 07-08-2006 12:24 PM

I don't know what that garbage is or who they are trying to fool with it. I guess he developed that syndrom some time after he won 2 SEL championships in 3 years and after he won a Gold Medal at the Olympics full of NHL players. "Can't See". Give me a break. Maybe we lost because the entire team didn't bother to show up. The results were no better when Weekes was in net too. Fact is, you can post anything on the internet and claim anything with out fear of consequence.

A gold medal game in the Olympics for a team that sorely needed a fresh goalie carrying a TON of PRESSURE from the last Olympics. when was that? Who was the Goalie again? huh?

suse2166 07-08-2006 12:52 PM

Maybe Lundqvist got tired towards the end of the season ... I mean ... 82 games season, Olympics and plus Playoff ...

If he got worn down towards the later of the season.... The Rangers need a reliable backup goalie ...

as Kevin Weeks re-sign with the Rangers? if not Manny Legacy for RedWings is available ..

but I agree this medical article story sound garbage to me ..

Linnarhult 07-08-2006 12:54 PM

Is this article relly about Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers? The Henrik Lundqvist who had 3 shutouts in the SEL finals 04/05? Humm... Lundqvist, eyeproblems..? I don't think so...

2Leetch_94 07-08-2006 12:56 PM

Or maybe it was because he was sitting with a hip flexor and he wasn't fully healthy? Jeez. If the Rangers defense even showed up a little, I mean, like for a period of the series....

I'd take Lundqvist in another playoff series and take my chances.

broadwayblue 07-08-2006 12:57 PM

I'd love to know what "sources inside the organization" have reported/confirmed this "condition." Sounds like a bunch of crap to me as well.

If you guys can't see that this is a joke, I feel bad for you.

ATLANTARANGER* 07-08-2006 01:59 PM

while we here on this side of the pond think that the NHL & the Stanley Cup are the end all. On the other side of the pond it ain't necessarily so. The pressure to compete for one's country is enormous. The pressure is far greater. All that that post is si the ranting of some lamearse that had nothing better to do. By people repeatng it you help validate what the moron that wrote. You end up giving it a life of their own.

Hedberg 07-08-2006 02:02 PM

This is a joke

NYR94 07-08-2006 02:50 PM

Give me a break even the guys on the Devils board knew this was fake.

Quick let's trade him before anyone reads that!

RangersMoogle 07-08-2006 03:02 PM

It's kinda funny. Maybe it was written by a pessimistic Devil's fan?

hpNYR 07-08-2006 03:06 PM

I'm glad you guys took it FWIW (****)

Next time I should read where the article came from. :innocent:

xander 07-08-2006 07:23 PM

"Please note that this is a real report with valid sources within the Rangers organization."

hmm, very few credible news stories get ended like this.

garypl 07-08-2006 07:29 PM

Even an Islander fan as myself can see that story is BS

So say that we swept/beat New Jersey...anybody else think this article would have been written? I don't think so. Oh yeah the guy did have a high groin strain and was ICE COLD/SHUT DOWN from the regular season into the playoffs.

Barbara Underhill 07-08-2006 07:49 PM

Weekes suffers from a similar disorder as well...

GKJ 07-08-2006 07:52 PM

Someone parouse through that site a little bit and tell me that this is legit because I am pretty sure that this is BS...

The New Originals 07-08-2006 07:55 PM

well atleast the article explains why lundqvist won a gold medal at the olympics...

hdw 07-09-2006 10:52 AM

Pressure? Well, given that we have no NFL, no NBA, no Baseball, it's all about Soccer and Hockey.

As you might know there's a tournament for washouts who didn't make the playoffs known as 'IIHF World Championships'. That tournament gets about 100 times the media cover that the Stanley Cup playoff gets. And the coverage that the playoff gets is mostly about which swedes migth become available for 'washout' tournament.

Now guess how it looks if we're talking Olympic Hockey, with all our beloved (and multi millionaire) NHL 'stars'.

The team that went to Nagano in 1998 was heralded as the best national hockey team that Sweden had ever had, they blew it and ended up 5 or 6 or something.

2002 was time for the "The Showdown of the Stars", they sailed thru qualifying, beating the winner-to-be Canada with ease. Then went giggling into quarters against lowly Belarus.

And blew it, the entire team was labelled 'Traitors of the Nation'.

So in 2006, 8 years after the failure in Nagano, 4 years after disaster in Salt Lake, the last chance to have the 'Golden Generation', Forsberg, Sundin, Lidström, Näslund, Norström, Alfredsson et al, there's one last chance to deliver.

That 'NY Rangers' rookie didn't have 'pressure' on his shoulders, he carried 8 years of national trauma ...
