According to Rangers own scouts, it was because the year the draft occured, Lundqvist's numbers weren't that impressive.
From the tournament where scout Jan Dusek spotted him, he wrote though: "Never before have I seen a goalie this good, at this age, since Dominik Hasek." (or something along those lines). So, the Rangers took a chance in the 7th. A goalie they knew had great talent under the radar, but whose future was uncertain.
