Lundqvist
Elliotte Friedman at CBC Sports has this quote from former Rangers back-up goaltender Alex Auld on what makes Henrik Lundqvist so good..."Henrik is so efficient. Because he plays so deep, he doesn't need to move much. He's able to take in more [mentally] and there's less confusion going in his head. He's focused. Able to read the play. It's very hard to teach that."...with the way Lundqvist has been playing lately maybe he needs to play a little deeper. I kid Hank....i really think the flu is the cause of his recent struggles, not only is it physically draining, but by keeping him away from the rink it likely messed with his routine thus throwing off his rhythm. Assuming it's only a matter of till he starts feeling it again.Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at nyrfan94@yahoo.com.

MVP So Far This Season

In January I picked Evgeni Malkin as the MVP so far this season.  In February, Henrik Lundqvist took the MVP lead.  I am back to picking Malkin as MVP.  When I picked Lundqvist he was posting a .940 saves percentage and a 1.78 GAA.  Those numbers have fallen to a .934 saves percentage and 1.89 GAA.  While those are still Vezina Trophy numbers they are not good enough to be...
