Do we Continue to Ride The Hot Lundqvist?

How should Renney manage the goalies in the next few games?

Lundqvist in the past* 5 games has a .955 save % and a 1.20 GAA

Next 6 games:
1/31 vs. TOR - Lundqvist
2/3 at T.B. - Lundqvist
2/5 vs. DET - Weekes
2/6 at N.J. - Lundqvist
2/9 vs. T.B. - Lundqvist
2/10 at WSH - Lundqvist
Then we have 4 days off for Lundqvist to get a nice rest.


These games vs any eastern conference team are very important at this stage of the season and Lundqvist is playing some of his best hockey of the season. Let Weekes play against the western conference team on that back to back game.

Give Henke no back to backers, especially against teams that we can beat with Weekesy such as Washington

it's past 5 games. but yes, that schedule looks about right. that would have him playing 5 of the next 6. one back to back, but as you say, 4 days off afterwards.

Lundqvist should be playing all games vs. conference opponents that are in the playoff picture. We need those games and we need our best team on the ice. That means Weekes is opening the door on the bench, not playing.

Depends how he plays in these games. If he stays hot, and says he isn't tired, Renney should continue to ride him.

Ehh, I would give Weekes the Washington game, but that doesnt mean that its going to be a push over game by any means. But atleast if they lose they arent giving any points to potential playoff teams. But I think Weekes will start against TB on the 9th But who the hell knows for sure.

We need to win all the games and Henrik gives us the best chance. If he's not tired I play him every single one.

True, but at some point playing him every night is going to lead to him becoming tired/injured when we can least afford it. I realize we need all the points we can get, but it would be foolish to push him for a better chance at 2 or 4 points now when we need him fresh and healthy later.

Well, Lundqvist hasn't faired terribly well in DC, and I happen to be going to that game...so maybe let Weekes give it a go.

The Rangers are terrible in DC anyways

They look almost exactly the same.

Probably because they're twins.

Washington is the seventh highest-scoring team in the NHL. I watch em every night, they are no pushovers. I feel like they're a team that we could end up with in a high-scoring affair, and even with the COP line I still don't know that we have the punch to win those games. They suck because of their defense. I'd feel much more comfortable with Henke.

Where did I say that they were pushovers? They just present the easiest matchup in that stretch of games.

TB has Marty Brad and Vince

WSH has Ovy and Semin..

3 beats 2. Play Weekes against the Caps.

I wish he could. It seems the last time Weekes played was so long ago.

Everyone seems to be saying to play Weekes against Washington, but the Caps always come out strong. I think Renney will play Weekes at least one (if not both) of the back-to-backs if not both.

All these points are crucial and Henrik gives us the best chance to win. I much rather play Henke against division rivals especially the Devs so I could see Renney starting Weekes vs the RedWings and Henrik the next day against the Devs.

Sorry bud, I didn't mean to imply that you had said that.

I just think that with the four off days after the Washington game that Henke should be able to play 5 of the 6 games and still get some decent rest.

This is a tough stretch of game for us here, and we really need to start playing consistent hockey. A little run against these teams could do a lot for us in terms of our confidence and our place in the standings. Later in the season, if it looks like we'll make the playoffs then I'm all for giving Henke nights off in the back-to-backs. But right now, we need him in there. I think he can handle it.

Agreed. I'm fully expecting Tom to disband the COP line (**** Sam's silly OCP line) if they fail to score in the first period against Toronto.

weekes is the worst back up in the league every game he starts is an automatic loss in my book. just horrible i cannot wait for this guy to go valiquette would be better than this guy. all you ask from the back up is to keep you in the game nothing special just keep you in the game he RARELY does that.

Wow, Weekes is far from the worst backup in the league. He's struggled this year but that coincided largely with the defense in front of him being terrible in most of his starts. I'm not going to argue he's great, but if he were then he wouldn't be a backup. He's also played a couple fantastic games this season and had his name chanted at the Garden a couple times.

In an ideal world you have a backup who can consistently come in and shut down the opposition, but in that case you really have two starters with one getting most of the minutes. Weekes is a capable backup who makes big saves but struggles a bit with his rebound control. I don't get the hatred towards this guy- he's overpaid but he's really not bad.

Also, he's 4-6 this season and was 14-14 last season. It's not great, but then that makes your statement that "every game he starts is an automatic loss" look kind of ridiculous.

Knowing Renney with matters of common sense, it will probably go like this:
1/31 vs. TOR - Weekes
2/3 at T.B. - Weekes
2/5 vs. DET - Lundqvist
2/6 at N.J. - Weekes
2/9 vs. T.B. - Weekes
2/10 at WSH - Weekes

In all seriousness, I would go with Weekes against Was. The games are important but riding your #1 into the ground does you no good in the long run. He didn't hold up too well with the intense workload late last season.
