Last night, MSG started its coverage of the NHL Draft. They had on John Davidson who spoke highly of Henrik Lundqvist and Marc Staal.

“When you think about Marc Staal and Henrik, combined almost 30 years of service with the Rangers, and both of them have played with a great deal of compassion, a great deal of competitiveness, have gone and won a Presidents Trophy and have gone to the Stanley Cup Finals. These are the types of things that really weigh on you when you try and make these decisions, and these are the hard ones to make.”
