    Wouldn't his ego make him want to play in the WC too?

    He stated that he's not playing in the WC because of a knee injury he's had nagging him over the course of the season.

    Henrik Lundqvist declined an invitation to join Team Sweden for the World Championships while citing the knee issue he first referenced at the Rangers’ breakup day on April 10 as the reason.

    Lundqvist, who originally sustained the left MCL injury during Tre Kronor’s run to the title last spring, underwent an MRI exam last week that revealed no structural damage.
    https://nypost.com/2018/04/10/henrik...t-of-the-year/
    Goalies play through injuries, too.

    That was the reminder from Henrik Lundqvist on Rangers breakup day Tuesday, when the franchise netminder revealed he had been playing through a knee injury suffered in late-October that was managed for the rest of the regular season.

    “From the start of the season, it was fine. It felt good. Then got bumped into early on, late October or November,” Lundqvist said, noting that it was the same knee he hurt in the World Championships last spring after he joined Team Sweden following the Blueshirts’ second-round exit at the hands of the Senators.

    “After that, it’s been there. Something I had to deal with … it’s not affecting my play, but it’s something that every day you have to look after. It’s not ideal, but I think it’s part of playing in this league, too. You play every day and you just have to make sure you do whatever is necessary to be ready to play. But now I see an opportunity to get the right treatments and feel 100 percent.”
    So obviously the question is why he was playing at all.

    Yea, they should've shut him down right after the deadline or when they decided to give up on the season, if that was the case.

    I don't understand how an MCL injury doesn't effect play.

    But I'm clearly not a doctor.

    It's clearly an excuse to not go, which I'm fine with

    Thanks Puck, there really is an elite 9, so it is likely we will be able to pick one. IMO, after Dahlin there are 2 groups of terrific prospects:

    Tkachuk, Zadina, Svechnikov and Boqvist needs to be in the conversation, his upside is sky high.

    Bouchard, Hughes, Wahlstrom and Dobson present their own reasons to get excited. In about two months one of these 9 players should be our 1st round pick. And a NY Ranger!

    I'm going to be so mad if they pick a 5'8 170 lbs D- man.

    Grabner scratched for Game 3. Kinda think he's very available to us if we want him. I still do. What's the harm? The contract will be modest.

    So Wahlstrom is 9th? Go and get him!

    Strange to see Tkachuk ahead of Zadina. Feels like Svechnikov/Zadina has been locks for 2-3 the entire year. I think I would still go for Zadina at 3rd tho.

    I say no. Why would we want him? We need change. If I were him I'd sign wherever AV does. He's clearly a product of the system.

    You watched him. He was a product of his defense, speed, hockey sense and effort. His goals did not come from long stretch passes or him sneakily hanging the wing. He caused turnovers, big time turnovers and converted on enough of them. Defense + speed + anticipation + physical specimen will work with any coach that leverages that role in the lineup. Good quiet example for the kids too.

    I get this idea about getting the bad taste out of our mouth, but Grabs was consistent for us. He's tough in the playoffs, wants to be with a team that wants to be fast, excellent PKer/defender, slots up the lineup and now he's gonna be cheaper. Any other better FA forwards out there for say 2/3 years at 3.2mil?

    It is not necessary to get any forwards in FA, but if we are bargain shopping and want to not ice guys like Holland and Carey....

    I get it. Realistically an argument can be made about any of the players and they have been made here: Zucc, Hayes, Vesey, Grabner, Nash, etc. Each brings something that’s “hard to come by” or is a “good leader” or can “teach the kids.” That group sucks. That group has won exactly 0. The team needs an overhaul and not just McDonagh and Miller. The entire roster.

    Grabners struggles has to be a concern. He was a great fit with av. He’s had no success otherwise and is now a healthy scratch. With a new coach coming in and hopefully bringing back structure it would make me pause in bringing him back.

    I loved his effort here during his tenure, but I think it's time to move forward with new faces and a new attitude here....Nash included. I wanna see a whole new regime. ....again that's me. I'm tired of the same old crapola.

    Out with the old, and in with the new...

    Agreed. You only have to watch the ongoing playoff series to appreciate how much of a reboot this organization needs. Could you imagine our current roster in any of these series? It would be utter carnage.
