ESPN's fantasy rankings have Lundqvist ranked down at #31, with Brodeur, Nabokov, Giguere, Fleury, Theodore, Price, Luongo, Bryzgalov, Osgood, and Huet all ranked ahead of him. They have him winning only 34 games, and this is what they say about him:
2009 Outlook: Here’s the thing with Lundqvist: he is consistent as they come and a very safe pick as your No. 1 goaltender, but he doesn’t come with the upside of other picks. We’ve been witness to “King Henrik’s” high-quality ceiling the last two seasons, and it really doesn’t look like he’ll turn in better numbers than 35 wins, a 2.25 goals-against average and a .915 save percentage. Those are terrific numbers, but he doesn’t come with the blow-you-away potential of a Roberto Luongo or a Jean-Sebastien Giguere. We’ll still take Lundqvist’s contributions as a top fantasy pick, but until the Rangers look more like the class of the league, Lundqvist isn’t a first-rounder.
