Ah, I thought this was going to be a thread exposing that he was addicted to painkillers or something.

I don't buy this, at least not that it's something worth worrying about. If he was injured in the playoffs, and it would have required all-summer rehabbing, the Rangers would not have allowed him to partake in the World Championships just weeks later. By the way, nowhere in there does it mention that the Malkin incident is the cause, does it? If anything the article is over exaggerating some recurring knee problems that he's had since 2004, and he's performed just fine since then..

DruMez- You are actually correct. Not directly atleast. They are talking about him having overextended ACL's, said that he had problems with them the entire season and that it got worse in the PO's.

But at the time, and in the WCH's, it was reported that it did get worse from the Malkin crash.

So did I.

Well it doesn't seem like this is anything to worry about NOW, down the road maybe, i've never heard of over extended ACL's. I'm sure the Ranger Medical & training staff are all over this.

Lost in translation? I would call it strained ACL's.

You would think that the medical trainers are handling this, and that if something was seriously wrong, it would have been addressed at the end of the PO's.

Being a rickety old man who sits on his *** all day at work, my knees hurt just watching goalies drop into that butterfly... I'm sure it's just some soreness that's lingering on him and nothin' to worry much about as you've all mentioned.

The article mention that they thought it would get better just from resting; but it haven't.

Its not a big thing -- like its soreness; nothing else. No real damage that needs to be adressed.

But its a tad worrying non-the-less IMO. A cloud in the far horizon -- it probably will go past you but...

BTW, if Lundqvist is on painkillers -- why would anyone assume, first hand, that its a addiction and not just ordinary pain that hockeyplayers gets every now and then?

depth at goalie

IT doesn't really matter as we have Valley.

He's a good goalie. Not hank quality but can take the load if needed.

Because of the thread title, "Lundqvist on painkillers", as though you're stressing the part of the article where he's taking painkillers rather than stressing what really matters, the "injury".

That's going to be my approach until there's reason to feel otherwise.

Might this be something of an explanation for his lackluster performance in the midseason, and his so-so play in the POs?

Well, I hope this gets better and doesn't get any more serious. Him hurt would be the absolute last thing we need to happen.

We've got to get Sam or Zip to ask Hank if any of this is true.

If he had cortizone shots, that nothing new for athletes, but it could be a sign of a long-term problem.

Hopefully it isnt anything like that.
