LOL I thought the same thing.

Back on topic now, I'd put him in for that home game on 2/9 vs. Tampa. I think you guys can beat Tampa, and the advantage at home is a good thing.

I think we all know these next two games are basically the season. If the Rangers win both, there's still an outside chance of the postseason. If the Rangers lose one or both, it's lights out and Weekes should get a healthy number of games the rest of the way. I'm not saying shut Henrik down once this grim realization comes to fruition... but Weekes deserves some time, especially if it's showcase time. Maybe a team likes what they see and they give up a pick for him, and then it's Welcome Back to New York, Al Montoya!

The Rangers have lost confidence in Kevin Weekes.Can you really blame them after the series of brutal goals given up by Weekes against the Islanders and the debacle in Fort Lauderdale right before Christmas?Brendan Shanahan scores a goal against the Islanders to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead.Less than one minute later,Weekes gives up a soft unassisted goal to Jason Blake.Then the Panther game was terrible

Hes had plenty of rest. Hes 24 for christsakes! After the devils game they have 2 days off, and after the weekend they have 4 days off.

He gives them the best chance to win. I dont see anything wrong with this. If indeed he does play tonight and tomorrow.

JL has been playing awesome, I still don't know how we could not get Joel in the offseason!? Couldve traded Helminen straightup for Joel and Dallas wouldve obliged.

I have been watching what I can of Joel and he seems to be playing pretty well. It would be kinda cool to have both Lundqvist's on the team, but I doubt it would ever happen here.

It would be cooler to have the Hossa brothers

So I think Weekes is back from his injury. Anyone know if Renney is going to give him or Valiquette a start during either of the 2 remaining back to back games? We've got Boston/Isles next Saturday/Sunday and Philly/Toronto the following Saturday/Sunday. Or is Lundqvist going to start the final 10 games including two back to back sets?

Play Valiquette or Weekes against Boston considering it's the only team we've managed any offensive success against. Giving up 3 or 4 goals just might be okay. Use Lundqvist against the Islanders.

And if something like last night happens with Philadelphia on Wednesday (anything bigger than a 3-0 lead halfway through...) I think they should switch goalies mid-game because Lundqvist has been overworked and will not keep this up through the playoffs if he never sits.

Who are we kidding here. Playing anyone but Henrik is a luxury trhe Rangers don't have. They may need to win EVERY GAME to make the playoffs. Its going to be that close

Henrik Plays them all, unless all of these other four teams going for the 8 spot **** the bed or we manage to build a cushion on the 6-7 spot......

He's playing

Let's be realistic here...they won't need to win every game. I highly doubt that any of the teams who played below .500 hockey the last 10 games (Isles, Toronto, Montreal, Boston) are all of a sudden going to go on a 10 game winning streak to close out the season. 6 wins by the Rangers should be enough, and 7 would pretty much be a lock. That said they are going to be able to lose a few the rest of the way. IF giving Henrik a night or two off increases our odds of winning the games he does play I think it's something you have to consider.

Lundqvist will play ever game until (IF) a spot is clinched. I think last season, coupled with the extended time playing in the olympics, he was a bit worn down. I'm not sure how many games are played in the SEL, but I do know they are considerable less than that of an NHL season. I think he has gotten over this fatigue issue and is more than ready to play the last 10 if need be.

Neither would I. This could go down to the last game or two and we can't afford to give away a single point.

I'd think...

we'd only see Lundqvist in nets from here on out. The time to rest him was earlier in the season. He seems pretty strong right now, notching a shutout playing a second night in a row, after a strong night and a tough ride home - he's up for it, I believe.

absolutely

they have no choice. If they are getting blown out or blowing someone else out they can remove Henrik else he is in goal...

they have no choice...
