New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist strutted into the confines of the NHL office Monday in a sharp, blue pinstriped suit. Sporting a perfectly executed Windsor knot that had one reporter particularly baffled -- OK, it was our Scott Burnside: "Did you tie that yourself?" -- the 32-year-old Swede left everyone else in his sartorial dust.
Widely regarded as the best-dressed player in the league, Lundqvist has a bevy of other talents, including but not limited to: playing tennis at expert level (he counts legend John McEnroe as a summer adversary) and jamming on his guitar (he once played "Sweet Child o' Mine" on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"), all while maintaining a perfectly coifed mane that has men and women seething with envy.
Lundqvist is also one of the elite goaltenders in the game, taking home a Vezina Trophy in 2012 and helping the Rangers to the Stanley Cup finals in 2014.
Had we pressed further, he might have revealed he was fluent in nine languages and held a Ph.D. in molecular engineering, who knows.

But I finally got an answer to what I have long wondered: What exactly is Lundqvist bad at?
Though he insisted he had his shortcomings, it took him a while to rack his brain. Then he identified his primarily fault:
"I love to eat," he said. "But I can't cook."
So, there you have it. It's settled. Henrik is human after all.
