Lundqvist
In an interview with Page Six at the New York Post, Henrik Lundqvist discusses his preparation for the upcoming season despite the impending lockout..."I'm approaching it that it's going to be good to go when it's time to go. I'm practicing the same way and, mentally, I'm preparing for a normal season."...got to assume this is the mindset of most NHL players. While it doesn't look promising, a player can't take their training for granted because anything can happen. And God help any Rangers player who isn't in shape for Torts' training camp....this is the time of year fans normally start getting fired up for a new season, instead it's complete frustration.Speaking of Lundqvist, looks like he's embarassing another Philadelphia team...Congratulations to Cliff Lee on having as many wins at Citizens Bank Park in 2012 as Henrik Lundqvist.— Jesse Spector (@jessespector) August 26, 2012 ...the Eagles and 76ers better watch out.Remember...

Lundqvist Remaining Optimistic for 2012-13 Season

Vezina Trophy winner Henrik Lundqvist (that sounds so damn cool) has had quite the summer, from the Awards to welcoming his first child to the world, fashion shows, GQ gatherings and sporting events among many other occasions on his agenda - all of which I am knowledged of because of his continuous tweets about all of them.

Reasonable expectations: Rick Nash

When the Rangers acquired Rick Nash last month, they did so knowing they were solidifying their primary offensive line, and compensating for the Marian Gaborik injury. However, many have been setting the bar for Nash very high, to the point where fans may be setting themselves up for disappointment. First things first, let’s get Nash’s career averages out of the way. Sticking...

Rangers Dog Walking Promotion Out of Control

Listen, I love the canine species just as much as the next guy, but the Rangers constant, over the top promotion of John Tortorella's dog walking charity event is a little out of control. And now comes the latest marketing attempt for the event (via Deadspin), this very odd pic of Henrik Lundqvist and his Doberman, Nova......i guess some people will find this pic cute, but I...

NHL ’13 ratings

Since NHL ’13 might be the closest we get to NHL hockey for a few months, it seems appropriate that we post the NHL ’13 ratings for the Rangers roster. Kevin touched on this in Thursday’s musings, but there are a few complaints regarding these rankings. While many are focusing on Chris Kreider’s 68 rating, I’m actually more focused on the 73 rating shared by Anton Stralman...
