    Fedorov had already donned two other jerseys after the Red Wings before joining the Capitals (Anaheim and Columbus). Lundqvist hasn't.
    The Red Wings aren't also a rival team of the Capitals.

    The two aren't particularly comparable situations.

    Its not worth arguing over. At the same time Pittsburgh players in Caps unis are far worse than Lundvist. Even if it works out.

    sucks for Lundy but he was pretty bad lat season and became a buyout and min contract player. I cant remember did he move here after signing?

    While this image doesn't accurately described the aforementioned activity, I believe it's time to change your avatar.

    Sorry to hear about your cranial rectosis diagnosis.

    It’s unfortunate that someone needs to tell you that the sound isn’t .... appealing.

    Hmm...sounds like Hank has had a leak for a while and it suddenly got worse. That open heart surgery does mess with your no shirt look but when you are ripped and chisled, who cares. Rehab from that takes a while even if he isnt going to play anymore

    Lundqvist is back on ice, is there any hopes/expectations possibility for him in the line up this year?

    Physically my thoughts is that he would get in shape quickly if he is allowed to work hard. Would be special to have him on ice, probably give a boost to the teem as well.

    He’s on LTIR so I think if he was medically cleared and there was cap space to activate him there’s nothing preventing him from playing. I have no idea if this heart issue is one he can receive clearance for or how long it could take, i.e. will the doctors make him wait a minimum period, such as 12 months from surgery, before they clear him or does he have to pass certain tests but there’s no timeframe, or is this something where he’s never again allowed to play professional sports? Beat writers unfortunately haven’t been helpful in discussing those details (at least not that I’ve seen) though that could be related to medical privacy issues.

    As terrific as it was to see Henrik on the ice again, I’m really skeptical he’d be medically cleared to play anytime soon. While seeing him engage in aerobic exercise again is a great sign, that’s not the only health concern to deal with after open heart surgery, especially during a pandemic. Being around the team and competing in a non-bubble format certainly poses all sorts of health risks.

    I wish him the best recovery and he's one of my favorite NHL players all time even if he was a Ranger. I rather he get a healthy recovery than play hockey again. He's a great ambassador for the game and to community. I do admire, his passion for the game, work ethic, and attitude, however this is something you need a long recovery.

    Maybe it will get clearer in a couple of days, i guess he himself have some kind of restrictions and time schedule from the medical staff.

    @Zats Muccarello posted this interview on the NYR board and I thought some of you would also be interested to see it. The guy is a beast and he hasn't given up, pretty much far from it. He's not only extremely competitive, he's also very insightful. Not your ordinary interview, made by Kevin Weekes.

    These are 2/4 videos, they are posted daily. Part 3 @4PM today. If he'll be back in the NHL all depends on some upcoming tests. He wants to play, that's for sure. It's unheard of. But if anybody can do it it's him. He was back on the ice 45 days after the surgery, holding himself to a maximum pulse of 150. He will do everything he can to get back on the ice, but things are now out of his control - and he accepts that.

    Part 3, again some great discussion about the mentality of practice and what makes a good player become great:

    Last part tomorrow.

    So no Hank this year. Doctors say he needs more time for his heart inflammation to heal completely. No Willis Reed moment for us this Spring.

    Lundqvist won't play for Capitals this season after open-heart surgery

    Bummer.
