I think I've got a bad case of Henrik Lundqvist withdrawl. No new photos. No new video. No new games to watch him in on TV. It's only been one day. OMG
Carp has some quotes from Henrik on break up day. Every time I hear it called break up day, I feel like crying. OK not really, but it's sad. Henrik should have been playing in the playoffs.
I’ve been a pro for nine years now, five years here and four or five years back home, and never missed the playoffs. I can’t find words right now. It’s disappointing.
It's more than disappointing. It's a travesty.
You realize we didn’t lose our spot on Sunday. We lost it during the year when we didn’t have enough consistency in our game and we lost a lot of games we should have won. That’s where we lost our playoff spot.
That's exactly the truth.
Carp also mentioned that Henrik has some issues with his knees and hip so he's not sure about the World Championships right now. Henrik is too young to be in pain every day.
But it’s hard to be satisfied when it’s not enough. We didn’t make it so … It feels better when you know you did what you could, but it still doesn’t make up for missing the playoffs. It really sucks.
But I think it’s important that whatever happens, whoever’s going to be here in September, we’ve got to realize we’ve got to do better; this is not where we want to be. We expect more of us. We want to be a playoff team, and we want to be a good playoff team. That’s our goal. Like I said, our fans expect more of us, and so should we.
Or Henrik will take them out back and beat the crap out of them. Henrik expects to make the playoffs next year and make a strong run for the Stanley Cup. I sure hope everyone that shows up for training camp has the same goal. I don't want to see Henrik so broken hearted again.
Introspective Henrik doesn't want to be in this position again next year.
