Lundqvist must get a rest

Not including the Olympics Lundqvist has played in 49 games now. Before this year the most he has played in a regular season is 48. I'd like to see Weekes play at least half of the remaining games. Lundy's game has fallen off a bit and my guess is that it's from fatigue. Any thoughts?

This team has played 9 in 15 nights, and by the end of the week, will hvae 12 in 20 nights.

No one can play that much.

I think Weekes will definitely get 1 out of every 3 games left at the least. I wouldn't mind Weekes starting 2 games in a row to give Lundqvist a few days rest.

I think you can visibly tell from Lundqvist's body language that he's tired...

He needs rest, tonight was the worst I have seen him in a long time, not just the goals but he did not control shots the way he normally does.
One good thing though is that he seemed right back on track in the OT which is a testimate to his strong mental state.

Still, I think we would have won in regulation with Weekes tonight and that pretty much says it all, Henrik needs a rest.

I like Kevin a lot, I like Henrik more though.
What I strongly dislike is the fact that I have all season felt that Kevin has been treated unfairly.
So therefore I try to take the opportunity to give him some support becuase there is not much of that going around here.

He had a slump in Jan-December, otherwise he has been solid.

Weekes save precentage pre his Jan-Dec slump.

.897.



Weekes save precentage post his Jan-Dec slump.


.924


For a backup .897 is solid, and .924 is Vezina worthy.

his rest was thurs and fri. last i checked we're 3 pts back on buffalo and the 4 spot is home ice. you want to start the more superior goaltender or not? im all for starting weekes if the coaching staff belives weekes will play better. i am against starting weekes just to "rest" lundqvist. its a big game and at home.

I agree that we need to rest Henke but not for tommorow's game. With a win the Rangers are within one point of home ice advantage and they lead again in the Atlantic.

Weekes probably should get the call on Wednesday on Long Island because the Rangers play Thursday night in Ottawa.

I am not a fan of Kevin Weekes, but he is a New York Ranger, so he has my support when he plays.

The problem with him is that he despite playing strong, his 5-hole is as big as the Lincoln tunnel. If only he could close it, he would soooo much better.

Yes, I am a fan of Lundqvist and preferably I'd like to see him play all 82... then I wake up from the dream and realise that Weekes has to be an important part of this team... like I said, he has my support if he wins games for the Rangers.

The Rangers-Islanders game on Wednesday is on TV here, and in all honesty... I've seen Lundqvist plenty of times now, I really wouldn't mind seeing Weekes win against the Islanders.

Do you also think Holt could double-shift between playing in goal and on a line with Jagr and Prucha?

I heard Holt has a twisted-wrister... I also heard that 2Pac may still be alive, kickin' it with Elvis on a secret island

I do agree with you! sleepy (weeks) needs to play at least every other game to give hank a rest. The blueshirts need a rest but at same time would love the number three spot in the conf. It's a nice problem to have ? compared to the way it was in the past.

In Brodeur's first two years in the NHL he played 47 games (93-94) as a 21 year old and 40 games as a 22 year old. As a 23 year old and in his third year he played in 77 games.

I think Lundquist can handle the "additional" games in comparison to his previous pro experience in Sweden.

I think the Rangers play in the past 10-12 games is more of the reason why he looks tired than his actual physical state.

Any pro player in the NHl should be able to handle the schedule. Many other teams have young netminders that play many games. All teams have to go through back to back and tons of games in a few nights with lots of travel. This tired crap is just an excuse for the team playing poorly. 6-8 hours of bed rest and he should be good to go. Renney and Co. need to ***** who they feel is the better player, against the team NY is up against, and play the goalie that they feel gives this team the best chance to win.

OK, JR. We do need to tighen up in our defencsive end. That said these are great times for blueshirts fans. Were excitied for the playoffs and are planning a back yard party to kick it off. I will be heading home from Sacred Heart University at about the same time the playoffs are in gear. May 8th were going to do up! complete with banners, signs and jerseys and kegs.

He wasn't treated unfairly. Lundy just flat out outplayed him. Weekes was good at the beginning of the year but Lundy was simply incredible and earned the starting job fair and square.

I don't see any mistreatment at all.
