Update, 4:45 p.m.:
Dan Rosen at NHL.com was also able to catch up with Lundqvist today and the Rangers netminder spoke with him about the importance of the Martin Biron signing...
"When I'm not playing, we have a great goalie to step in and it's going to push me to play even better because if I'm not playing well enough he will take my job," Lundqvist said.
...i almost fell off my chair when I read that. I don't care how bad Lundqvist plays, no way Biron is taking his job.
Jesse Spector at the Blueshirts Blog spoke with Henrik Lundqvist about already being in mid-season form after just two informal practices...
"The way things ended last year, after a few weeks, you just wanted to get back and come back as a winner," Lundqvist said. "I'm getting there. It's going to take a few weeks to get ready."
...the one thing I'm always the most impressed about with Lundqvist is his will to win. I don't think there's another player on the Rangers that wants to win as much as Lundqvist. And that's not a shot at the other players (well maybe at Redden) but he seems to take every loss so hard.
