I am in mourning. We thought we'd get to see Henrik in the World Cup in Germany, but that's not going to happen now. According to the Swedish newspapers Henrik's knee just won't heal fast enough and he's not going to play. He's been going to rehab, running but Henrik says
it is both physically and mentally tough to play World Cup when you are not 100 percent.
The article was a little harsh in the opening. I was surprised. Apparently the Swedes are still a bit upset that Tre Kroner didn't bring home the gold.
Henrik Lundqvist may have no chance to take revenge for Olympic failure in Vancouver.
Either that or they were miffed that Henrik informed the newspaper by text message that he wasn't playing. I'm not surprised one bit that Henrik didn't want to talk about it. No Olympic gold, no Stanley Cup playoffs, and now no World Cup run for him. Again, the malt liquor is sounding like a good idea for him right now.
