from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, The Rangers expect to be a formidable team this year, there’s no question about that. They believe to a man that that they should battle for a top-four seed in the East rather than seventh or eighth. Marc Staal is down for an indefinite period of time, but every team has to deal with significant injuries and every team has to deal with adversity.
What (or who) every team doesn’t have, however, is Lundqvist, who at 29 is entering his seventh year in the NHL. It will need to be his best and it will need to be his most consistent.
And it will need it all to start today, in a spotlight unlike any other under which he has performed as a Ranger.
For that, Lundqvist is ready.

There is no way to prepare for the absence of an All-Star
defender like Marc Staal from your lineup.
The combination of the level he plays at, the competition he shuts down
and the sheer number of minutes that he eats makes him one of the most valuable
New York Rangers. However, that is the
situation before the Rangers now and the question is not about if they have to...
