Henrik Lundqvist is a true competitor, and he won’t back down from the overarching goal that comes with the territory of being a professional ice hockey player – a Stanley Cup Championship. Over the past two seasons, Lundqvist has come so close but to no avail. What could rock someone to their core after nearly receiving the greatest achievement in the sport’s history, in back to back seasons, continues to be the biggest motivation factor to one of the best goaltenders the sport has ever seen. Lundqvist believes he will get his Stanley Cup, and at his current age of 33, it calls to question how much he has left in the tank.
Lundvist will continue to prepare before every game with extreme dedication. He will take care of his body with a strict diet, keep his body in fantastic shape in order to handle the rigorous 82 game season, and lastly and maybe most important, believe. Part of believing in winning the one trophy that is missing from his illustrious career are the off season moves made by the New York Rangers.
The Rangers are bringing back a tight nucleus of young talent locked up in long term deals and are looking to build off the positive outcome of the past two seasons under the steady leadership of coach Alain Vigneault.
But still, you can’t help but questions Lundqvist age and how tough it is to get the big one. He only has two to three years and some may consider him to be past his prime after coming in to league back in the 2005-06 season as a rookie.
We will have to wait and see.
