08:28 AM ET 11.09 | From a hockey perspective, Henrik Lundqvist hasn't exactly been welcomed back. [Lundqvist], who returned home to Sweden nearly three weeks ago, cannot play for his hometown Frolunda team because of the Swedish Elite League's ban on allowing its clubs to sign locked-out NHL players to contracts with escape clauses. "Nothing has changed. I'm not going to play for Frolunda unless things change," The King wrote in an e-mail to The Post after using his Twitter account to express his frustration with the SEL policy. "Just trying to stay ready in case things change overseas. The longer I have to wait, obviously the more I want to join my brother [Joel] on Frolunda, but right now I'm sitting tight," the 2011-12 Vezina winner continued.

Come on back, Henrik. There will be a CBA soon and the Rangers need you in net to compensate for their lack of scoring again.

Nash, Richards and Gaborik...they're Cup bound...just as long as they learn how to block shots!

Mm-hmmm. First it was Gaborik. Then it was Richards and Gaborik. Now it's Nash, Richards and Gaborik. Can't wait for next year's version :)

They should have all done that. But the KHL is too eager trying to show up the NHL

I think he's bit too rugged to portray Staypuff.
