07:43 AM ET 12.26 | The question has already been asked of Alain Vigneault: What about your goaltending coming out of the break? [As Henrik Lundqvist] has faltered, the Rangers have faltered in front of him, playing careless and often nervous hockey. It's as if both he and his teammates have been waiting for something bad to happen. It usually has. Ten wins in 27 starts. Seventeen losses, not including his aura. Into the breach, backup Cam Talbot. ... [If Lundqvist] encounters trouble on Friday, or in the following week that features road matches against the Lightning, Panthers, Penguins and Maple Leafs, then the Rangers would be in trouble. Then, the Rangers and Vigneault would be in a game-by-game mode. Then, the Rangers would have a full-blown goaltending controversy. You bet they would. And nobody but nobody wants that.

"Then, the Rangers would have a full-blown goaltending controversy."

Oh, no, not goalie controversy?? Why shouldn't they join in the rest of our misery for once. ;)

They've had it too good for too long, now they get a taste of what the rest of the league has to deal with.

By the way Happy Boxing Day to all the folks north of the border.

Must be a Larry Brooks story.......3 different topics going on in one story. Team defense, losing streak and Hank.....

A.V. , word of advice......dont sit your million dollar man; it's what got Torts fired.

As the Yankees should have traded Cano last year and gotten something in return, the Rangers should've traded Hank for something instead of resigning him for sixty mil

Their misery is nothing compared to yours. Any team will take their kind of misery over yours.

Basically if he plays bad then there might be a controversy. So now the news is about the possibility of news in the future, maybe.

Because not every other team goes headhunting and ends up with suspensions, silly.
