New Henrik Lundqvist Swedish Interview


Here we meet "Henke" the day before traveling to Manhattan for his 14th NHL season in one of Frölundaborg's guest dressing rooms, this is where we sit and talk untouched until Loui Eriksson, Andreas Johnsson & Co comes in after today's practice.
Henrik Lundqvist has only run physics.
Tomorrow Friday, he flies back to New York.
Exciting season awaits, but also an exciting year for Elder daughter Charlise, 6.
She starts first grade this fall.
** A little adventure, well?
- Haha, oh my ... Charlise is, says Henrik, bilingual, combines English with Swedish. Not really the same with little sisters Juli, 3:
- She speaks most English. We may try to work in Swedish.
Dad's task is clear and clear here (understood with good assistance from mother Therese), but to make Henrik Lundqvist, 36, father-in-law of New York Rangers newbuilding, it was sure to go too far:
- So old I'm not!
... Henke says quickly, but does a good laugh and a laugh.
Equally outdated, something is in the mind, for New York Rangers - as last season pulled away X number of veterans to make a reboot - this season will have a less credited team than before, one where several young players need to take big steps.
Lias Andersson (born -98) is one. Czech Filip Chytil (-99) another.
"Clearly, I feel responsible, I've been to Rangers for 13 years now, so I've known the past few years, but - maybe even more now, thought Henrik.
 ## Say goodbye to some stars, sell off, "Cash in" (in the form of players and draft choices, not money).
## Ask the young people in the organization.
## Drawing smart and building for the future.
Then the New York Rangers acted during and after last season. Hopefully the future will be fine.
Just a chin for Henrik Lundqvist.
He turned 36 in March.
- I do not know how many years I have left, clearly I would like to get a chance to be up there ...
Up there. In NHL's top layer. With the chance to win the Stanley Cup.
Rangers fell in the final against Los Angeles Kings 2014, the question is well unless it was the last chance for the guy called the King of New York.
** Or is it realistic to believe in a quick return to the top of Rangers? How do you look at it, Henrik?
"I think ... you may have to take it year by year, do not think about how long it can take without ... now this year applies. There is nothing saying that it can not be reversed quickly, but this year will be important, since next year there is also room for development.
The American NBC recently wrote that Henrik Lundqvist needed a miracle in order for Rangers to go to the final play this winter, already year 1 of the conversion phase.
The main character laughs at the snail, but he is clear with his feeling:
"After the camp we know more where we stand, but as a team we must overpower to go to the playoffs. In order for us as a team to take the next step, the young players must take several steps. Important that they come in with a desire to move forward, forward. Take place.
Henrik Lundqvist knows that his Rangers goes into the season as anything but a tipped top team, knowing that the dream of a Stanley Cup triumph feels more distant than before, he is - as seem-rave and honest with what it takes to over basically go to the playoffs.
Overprestera.Men he is far from being dismissed, however, uncertain, curious, simply does not know what will happen in winter. And that in itself creates an interesting feeling of departure westward:
- It will be exciting this. The idea is that we will start over. You can see how some other teams look like ... at the same time we can not be okay that "It was not meant to be", we have to put the rib as high as we can, but still have a realistic goal.
Henrik talks about a camp that becomes important, he does not want to look too far forward, the contract expires in 2021, but as he says - he does not know how many years he has left.
The ex-freestyle round goes over to live a lot in the present, focusing on their own game.
You can always do that, but it feels something more important now.
"I feel it's no idea to look too far ahead, do not think too much. Every year, their feelings are in some way, their expectations, their prerequisites, but ... now, I actually do not know where we are. We will see under camp, who will play where, how shall we play?
And what young ones are taking up.
And how fast it is possible to build new ones.
And ...
"You'll see it more shortly when we are in this situation, the construction phase, the conversion phase, you have to go to yourself, do as good as you can, and see where we stand for months in the season.
Henrik Lundqvist has hunted the Stanley Cup since joining NHL in autumn 2005, suddenly he is in a new situation.
Daddy, okay, not it then, but more than usual a leader in a converted team, almost no one believes in.
All success is a bonus.
Even the discerning audience in Madison Square Garden is aware of it, says Henrik:
- They (fans) know where we are, everyone wants success, but they have an understanding, we do not have the same expectations for us this year.
Consider David Quinn, an American who has been responsible for Boston University for the last five years, is a new coach and Henrik Lundqvist may still have a right stimulating season in front of him where the demands are lower and success can be measured not only in results but also in development. David Quinn was in Gothenburg in July to meet his goalkeeper star.
- Good initiative, you get a feel for each other before the season starts. Very positive.
Quinn is rookie as NHL head coach (has assisted in Colorado Avalanche), but there was a point when Rangers GM Jeff Gorton chose to replace kicked Alain Vigneault with 52-year-old Quinn.
Henrik Lundqvist explains:
"The important thing is that you can hockey. And in the state we are now, with many young players who require some guidance, it's very good with a coach who is used to working with young people.
There is a thought with all New York Rangers doing.
The question is how it goes.

New HQ Photos of Henrik Lundqvist's Tag Heuer Aquaracer Watch


The TAG Heuer Henrik Lundqvist Aquaracer is issued as a limited edition of 205 pieces – a nod to the number of the pick in the draft when he got elected. According to the player himself, this special edition is designed “for the fan”, for people who have followed him for a while and appreciate what he does. Both he and TAG Heuer wanted for this watch to have a simple, versatile design. The new Henrik Lundqvist Aquaracer is housed in a 43mm brushed stainless steel case. The case is water resistant to 300 meters and features a blue aluminum unidirectional turning bezel with the 20 minutes highlighted in red. On the back of the watch there is a solid case back engraved with Henrik Lundqvist’s signature. Underneath the sapphire crystal lies a blue sunray brushed dial that displays hours, minutes, seconds and date at 3 o’clock. Positioned at 9 o’clock is a crown with the number 30 inside – a reference to his number in the New York Rangers.

Powered by a highly-precise Swiss quartz movement, the Henrik Lundqvist Aquaracer comes on a brushed stainless steel bracelet. The watch is now available for pre-order, but only in Sweden and in USA. TAG Heuer has not yet announced the exact price.

Henrik Lundqvist is NHL's most experienced goalkeeper and has been the New York Rangers faithful for 13 years. Experience that took Rangers new coach to Sweden in the middle of the summer.

"We met in Gothenburg and talked. I got a great feeling, "said Lundqvist to SVT Sport.

Talking about the chances of the team in the next season does not give the Åre son an equally good feeling.

"We must overpower as team this year to take us to the playoffs.

"The level is really high at the goalkeeper game now"
But the 36-year-old claims to be better in better shape than ever and still sees development potential in himself.

"You learn a lot when you get a new coach. There will be an opportunity to develop as a player.

Do you feel the fuzzy neck of the younger players?

- Yes, yes. The level is really high at the goalkeeper game now. All teams have good goalkeepers and it is important to keep up with developments.

"Happy to have one of the best in the industry"
In an interview with NHL's website, coach Quinn talks about Lundqvist's importance.

"The goalkeeper is incredibly important for the team to succeed and we are excited to have one of the best in the industry," says Quinn to
