"Once a can't-miss-kid touted by NHL Central Scouting, a gifted forward taken ninth overall by the New York Rangers, Lundmark is hoping to use the last 21 games of the season to prove he can play. He wants to accomplish some of the goals he set for himself back when he was 19, representing Canada and set to become a star."
On why he struggled with the Rangers Lundmark said...
"A first-rounder going into New York is obviously a lot of pressure," he said. "I was young, but also, our team was old. We had a lot of veteran, all-star players who needed to play minutes. Really, I don't think I learned a lot in the first couple years of my career, and I think that kind of set me back."
...i'm sorry if you can't learn a lot sitting in a lockerroom with Mark Messier, Adam Graves, Brian Leetch and Mike Richter you're not going to learn anywhere.
...having said that, the Rangers did an awful job incorporating youth into those teams which led to the long playoff draught of the late 90s and early 2000s.
