The guy played one year in Hartford after finishing his junior career. That wasn't "so long". He played 55 games in the NHL the next year.

The only reason it may have been "so long" before they have him a shot is because everyone bought into the hype that he was going to be this awesome player for the Rangers and they wanted him in the lineup right away.

Fact is that he just wasn't that good. There's some legitimate gripe with how the Rangers were run back then and especially the coaching quality, but Lundmark got his chances. He just wasn't good enough to earn a top six spot.
