People on this board act like he's the savior of the team. Lundqvist is the savior of this team. Without him they don't make the playoffs since he put on the uniform.
Brother, did you ever hit the nail on the head about Staal. Some fans on here talk about him like he's Bobby Orr, ridiculous. We'll be just fine with or without him. If it's serious and he misses some time, its the old cliche, another persons misfortune is an opportunity for someone else.
