Apparently David Quinn would like us to believe that Lundqvist sitting for 3 straight games is part of a season-long plan to make sure he gets his rest, not because he stinks.

Ok, our goalies have stunk worse. But it’s Lundqvist and the Rangers, we are still permitted to mock them regardless.

To Henrik's credit, he's kept it together a year or two longer than I thought he was capable of, the defense in front of him is historically bad, even worse than our defense in every underlying stat. But yeah, he's pretty much done, I'd imagine they're hoping and praying Igor Shestyorkin is ready for the show next season.

Except when he hasn’t...haha

I enjoyed Cherry's Rock Em Sock Em tapes from back in the day since pre-YouTube it was nearly impossible to find a collection of hockey highlights. 

But other than that he has been the epitome of the "get off my lawn" out-of-touch old guy yelling at clouds. It was definitely passed the time to let him go.

Henrik Lundqvist does not stink. He's faced 36.16 shots/60 at 5v5 (3rd in the league among goalies with at least 300 minutes played) and he's faced some of the most difficult workloads in the entire league. The Rangers are terrible defensively and especially terrible at preventing high quality shots - they have the highest 5v5 scoring chances against/60 (33.17) and 5v5 expected goals against/60 in the entire league (2.93).

All that and Lundqvist has emerged with a .915 save percentage. There's no 4D chess here, the reason he's sitting is so he doesn't get worn out - especially given his age. The very good play of Georgiev has of course, also allowed the Rangers to make this decision right now.

Counterpoint...he’s a Ranger. He stinks.

Am I missing something or wasn't Kovy off to a decent start this season?

And also, what kind of situation is it when the team says you can practice with your teammates but you're not going to suit up and play with them? Lol

“We have to pay you, but we don’t have to play you”. 

Not sure why that’d be if not performance.
