from the Toronto Sun,
Henrik Lundqvist, make yourself comfortable. Like it or not, you are on the Olympic hotseat. The New York Rangers rookie is expected to be the starting goaltender for Team Sweden next month in Turin, a job that carries significant historical baggage with it. From Stockholm to Gothenburg, millions of Swedes will look to Lundqvist and the Maple Leafs' Mikael Tellqvist to wipe out the memories of the goaltending catastrophe in Salt Lake City four years ago, one that left an entire nation in mourning.
