09:46 AM ET 12.22 | The expectation is Cam Talbot will get the assignment in nets Sunday night when the Wild meet the Rangers at the Garden in the penultimate match of a heretofore disastrous nine-game homestand, during which the Blueshirts have won once (1-4-2). And unless the trademark ceiling of the remodeled building caves in on the 26-year-old goaltender, there's every chance he will play Monday night against the Maple Leafs as well, in the final game before the NHL's civilized three-day Christmas break. This wouldn't represent a benching for Henrik Lundqvist so much as a mental-health break for The King, who lately has appeared to be carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders through the most wobbly sustained stretch of his career.

Two articles on the Rangers. Don't see why the wouldn't rest King Henrik a little. What's the worst that would happen? They might lose?

I saw that. I would not have liked to have been a linesman trying to get between those girls.

I promised NYR that I'd rock this avatar for a week if the Rags beat the Leafs.

Nope. Maybe you could use it even if the Rags lose. Hmmm? Just asking. LOL

The days of Henrik winning games on his own for inferior teams, and compensating for lackluster efforts is gone - big money, long-term contracts are always a mistake - eventually.

Yup award a struggling goalie a massive contract.....On a side note.....when the Dead Wings arent near the play-off's come the trade deadline...where should they trade Datsyuk and Zetterberg ?? Im pretty sure they dont wanna be part of a rebuilding process.......so im thinking....To Boston: Pavel DatysukTo Detroit: Soderberg + Subban + 1st round draft pickLooks pretty good !!

Lundqvist? A struggling goalie? I wouldn't go that far, and more along the lines of......now I'm getting paid to watch my team lose games for me.

He's struggling a bit this year, but it has been the same ole stuff, and up till lately they haven't been in the highest scoring team race!

He's probably got the real analysts thinking he should retire......oh yeah Brodeur was getting that as 2009 started on......

If not for Character and the rookie Krug......Boston would be looking more like T.O but with less shots on goal. ;)
