"Rangers Gaga for Gaborik"

http://www.northjersey.com/sports/pr.../63219597.html

Quote:
An explosive push-off accelerated Marian Gaborik toward Henrik Lundqvist for a penalty shot Wednesday in practice. The Rangers’ key free agent signing first froze the goalie, who is noted for his success in one-on-one showdowns with skaters, then beat him with a blink-and-you-missed-it wrist shot.

"You need that guy, that game-breaker," coach John Tortorella said. "Those are key players if you want to win in this league consistently."
Quote:
"It’s always good to have players who bring a lot of attention," said Lundqvist, 27, a three-time Vezina Trophy finalist entering his fifth season. "You’ve got to be aware of a guy like that. There’s 10, 15 players, they’re just a little bit better than the rest in putting the puck in the net."
Interesting little bit at the bottom of the article.

Quote:
BRIEFS: Tortorella said there was "no possibility" Sean Avery (sprained right knee) would play tonight. … The Rangers will be on the visitors’ bench during tonight’s Stanley Cup banner-raising ceremony. "I don’t want to be disrespectful to what that trophy is," Tortorella said. "I think it’s a great thing, especially with the youth on this team." … A snag developed between Alexei Semenov, who Wednesday agreed to a one-year deal worth $600,000 after coming to training camp on a tryout basis, and the Rangers. Semenov did not practice Thursday, but accompanied the team to Pittsburgh.
LET'S GO RANGERS!

Did you just call gaborik a trans.....former?

Well one of two things can happen in practice now

1) Gaborik helps lundy in those "frozen moments" and help him to be even better on 1on1's

or

2) Lundqvist gets mad ,throws his stick into the glass,storms off the ice and trashes the training facility.

Well played.

I never thought about situation #1 actually. Lundqvist is facing a top NHL sniper in practice daily. Maybe he'll improve on his glove hand.
