08:50 AM ET 12.14 | It is not even the winter solstice and the Rangers are in a state of emergency. The SOS is sounding loud and clear from Manhattan Island. Only there seems to be no one in sight with the capability of responding to the distress signals that grow more urgent by the day. Not even Henrik Lundqvist, who of all people has somehow become one of the root problems of his team's ills rather than the solution he has been from Day One of his career back in 2005. This marked Lundqvist's fifth consecutive start in net, his longest such stretch of the season. All five have come after he signed his seven-year contract extension last Wednesday. Lundqvist insisted he is 100 percent healthy. There are no excuses. There are also no explanations for shots flying by him -- by the bushel on his glove side -- on such an alarming basis.

His wallet is too heavy.

Or ... maybe he needs the Three Finger massage?

They better figure out something because he has 7 more years to go and the Rags owe him $59.5 million.

Sounds like the same thing that got Jimmy Howard. Too much $$

The Rags gave Queen Henry way too much money for a goalie on the decline.

He's had his incentive removed, and alas and alack, he's suffered the typical Swedie-pie reaction. I honestly thought that this guy might've been immune, but, good work anyway, Slatty.
