Ranger Goalie Issues

from the NY Post,
A day after backup goaltender Henrik Lundqvist posted a shutout against the Panthers, Kevin Weekes spoke about the scrutiny of his injury. Asked if he was surprised to be Tom Renney's unrestrained choice as the Rangers' starting goaltender once his strained groin is healthy, Weekes, who is black, had this to say: "To be honest with you, I think I get asked these questions more than any other goalie in the league, and I don't know why. If Jose Theodore was injured, I don't think you'd be asking him the same thing. If [Nikolai] Khabibulin were injured, I don't think you'd be asking him the same thing, and I could go on and on down the line.
