Lundqvist played with sore knee late in the season

Quote:
If there was ever a reason for the Rangers to acquire a dependable backup to play 20 games a year, it is this: The wear and tear of a season during which he appeared in 73 regular-season games plus the Olympics was costly for franchise goaltender Henrik Lundqvist.

"The inside of my knee was bothering me for the last month of the season," the Rangers goaltender told Newsday Thursday. "The outside had bothered me before, and this time it was the inside. I had it taped and started getting other treatment right after the season. Nothing invasive, mostly rest. Now I've been skating two or three times a week without equipment."
http://www.newsday.com/sports/hockey...ason-1.2007028

Henrik has been skating at the Rangers facility with Aaron Voros.

Moose Hedberg and Marty Biron. Be waiting by your phone on July 1. Biron dumped his previous agent Gilles Lupien for Chris Drury's and Voros's agent Mark Witkin from Boston. Jay Grossman reps Hedberg.

What else is new? He gets injured late in every season. Sometimes it becomes public, other times it does not.

The coach has to face the facts that he CANNOT handle a work load of 70+ games. Hell, what goalie has gone far in the playoffs after playing more than 70? In the last decade, only one- Martin Brodeur.

The Rangers need to get a backup capable of playing 20-25 games. Lundqvist will never win a cup if he keeps this kind of workload. If it was up to me he would be playing 55-60. No more than that.

If not for this post I still would be thinking that was a picture of Henrik and Rozsival.

Brendan Shanahan hangs out with Lundqvist,Avery and Voros.

The Rangers need to add two goalies this summer. You need 5 goaltenders in the NHL and AHL/ECHL.

Quality back-up for Lundqvist.

Chad Johnson,Cam Talbot and another goaltender for Hartford/ECHL. The Rangers need an ECHL affiliation since Charlotte moved to the AHL.

I don't think the Rangers NEED to do anything. They can go get goalies for Hartford and Charlotte that aren't under contract with the Rangers.


We can always re-sign Zaba too, I guess.

Part of me wonders if Hedberg isn't going to be looking for a #1 job, not a backup job

And Tortorella KNOWS Lundqvist needs to play less. He just had no freaking backup goalie that could reliably spell Lundqvist.

He talked about getting Lundqvist fewer games, and then Valiquete flamed out and the Rangers were left with no real backup goalie. Not a good position ot be in

Funny thing was during the islander game late in the season he got beat on a long shot and stayed down on one knee. People said he looked injured on here and people blew it off. Hank is not a robot he needs his rest to

A little late in life for The Moose to chase a starters job.

This really isn't news. We all saw him get hurt after he was run into. That was also one of the last tomes he was run into cause Shelly put a stop to that crap real quick.

Auld or Brion would be the best of the F/A backups out there.

I dont know I thought Auld was a pretty good backup. Torts didn't really seem to like him though. Hedberg would be a nice backup.

I thought the same exact thing, he was the greatest goalie EVAR according to some people around here.

As it is right now we're probably going to suck next season so expect Tortorella to ignore all logic again

I'm not sure Auld is good enough for us to start him 20 games and still make the playoffs. I have more confidence in Hedberg

Still, it's time to try another approach.

I think most players are banged up the last month of the season. I wouldn't make a big deal out of this.

I don't think a reputable back-up starts that much more either. When we're behind in the standings, and Torts asks Lundqvist how he feels after starting 11 out of the last 12 games, Henrik will tell him he's good to go and his coach will listen.

Olympics. You throw that in the mix, and it adds a lot of mileage on everyone active. Especially a star goaltender who's relied on night after night.

People just have to accept the fact that hockey isn't a pantsy sport and players get banged up and play through it. I'd like to see a good back-up here, but that shouldn't be one of our biggest priorities this summer. There are plenty of back-ups capable of providing more consistency than Vally/Johnson.

Maybe its a good thing we didn't make the play-offs. Imagine Lundqvist playing intense games on an already stressed knee and pushing himself... We could have a much bigger problem than we intended.

The injury could have been caused my the multiple runs he took during the season just as well as from wear and tear... something people seem to be ignoring. He took some very hard hits this season.

Agree. As soon as I read this thread title, the first thing that came to my mind were the "runs" that other teams took at him.
