At what point do we worry and see what we can get based on his name? He didn't look good tonight at all.
this sadly has crossed my mind :/
Both H2H 12Team-3C3LW3RW4DUtl,2G,4BN
I've already started looking for a deal.
Made 2 offers few hours ago.
Lundqvist + Oshie for Malkin + Lehtonen
Lundqvist + Oshie for Stamkos + Bryzgalov
What I'm not willing to do is trade Lundqvist if I don't get one of those top forwards. But I just fear that Rangers get their act together and Lundqvist will start winning matchups almost alone again. Even Malkin or Stamkos can't do that.
Edit. Those offers got rejected. No surprise there, but I expected at least one of them start negotiations. Guess I'll keep him then...

Anyone else worried about the guy? I thought I might feel better after sleeping on it, but I'm still a bit panicked.
Part of Lundqvist's problem is the team penalty killing. The Rangers' kill rate is 78% and they are taking a lot of penalties. That puts Lundqvist's PKSV% at .8182 which is far below the league average. Thus, his overall SV% (what matters to you in fantasy hockey) is taking a beating.
As I write here:
the PKSV% is not a measure of goaltending talent. That's both good and bad for Lundqvist; it means he's not to blame, but it also means he can't do much about it.
As a side note, would you be happy as a Rask owner this season? His EVSV% is nearly identical to Lundqvist's this season. But, since Boston is killing penalties, Rask appears to be the much stronger candidate at the moment.
That's the best post I've ever read. I'll sit on him and hope NYR gets their act together. Hopefully once Callahan gets back the PK improves.
