Watching this guy play in Calgary, he is looking pretty good.

11 points in 15 games so far. Is he going to be the player we hoped he would be, with another team?

I was disappointed when that deal was made and I still am. Not because I think Lundmark is going to be that great, but because trading him to get Jeff Taffe...well, that doesn't make sense. I would have rather kept him around on the off-chance the new team direction might have helped turn his game around. Who knows what might have been if he had stayed. He did a score a goal in one of those first games before they dealt him.

And he's only 28 years old after being drafted ten years ago! Curse the Rangers and their lack of patience with prospects!

I agree. I'm sure Calgary will get some use out of him though

At least he's still in the league unlike Pavel Brendl.

Brendl has the skills to be a star, just not the work ethic.

Lundmark on the other hand, appears he went to the Andy Hilbert scoring school. The kid had just no hands. I don't know if was a distinct lack of hockey sense or just getting too flustered, but he would always just shoot into the goalies pads. While picking spots and scoring is always difficult at the NHL, someone just needed to pull him aside and show him how to elevate the puck consistently when shooting from within the hash marks.

Good for Lundmark...I'm glad he's doing well.

I had very high hopes when he came into the league (just like everybody else) and it just never really clicked due to him being rushed into the NHL.

Yeah, this is most likely. Good for him that he's had a nice run, but he still has spent the last several years bouncing up and down between the AHL and NHL. Maybe he's finally figured out how to be a consistent NHLer, but I somehow doubt it.

Well, he has the shooting skills. Not much else. Terrible skating, doesn't do much passing as I remember, not so much on defense...really great shot though! And I guess he's good at getting into shooting position

it seems like those first rounders always manage to hang around forever, even the busts.

No. The player we hoped he would be was a dominant 1st line center.

I miss Lundmark. I always had a soft spot for him and was sad when he was traded. he is one of those players that I just liked from the moment he was drafted. Just like Sundstrom, Dubi, and Cally. I hope he does do well over there in Calgary.

I really wish I had the video of Brendl actually giving in an interview while laying in bed, eating hot dogs. This was back in his WHL days as well, so you figure that this would have given GM's a glimpse into the future of just what this guy was all about.

I'm not making this up, either. I remember he was once quoted as saying "the food I like is the food that's good for me". That is honestly the first time I've ever seen a hockey player go in with that mentality.

I hope nothing but bad things for him for the way he played here and how he just didn't care 99.9 times out of 100 on the ice.

Wow 10 years later and he's finally contributing at more than a 4th line level at the NHL.

If he had heart and proper conditioning he would have been a 2nd line center for the past 5 seasons in the NHL.

I'm guessing someone gave him a heart transplant.

With all this said, how anyone can say, "good for him" or be happy for him is beyond me.

His failure to care set us back a long time. He could be the dominant 1st line center that we have never had since Messier left.

Just never gave a damn.
