Team Sweden’s security blanket that goes by the name of Henrik Lundqvist has concerns over security in Sochi, but that’s not the only reason the royal family won’t be accompanying the King to the Olympics.

“It is a few different things,” Lundqvist told Slap Shots on Friday night. “Security is one of them, but I don’t know how things are going to be set up for families over there.

“So I’m not going to have anyone there with me. I think it is better that way.”

The NHLPA has not issued any broad-based advisories to its membership, and there is no unanimity on the matter, but several agents and players have said the union, citing a lack of suitable hotels and accommodations outside of the Olympic compound where the players will be housed, is recommending families don’t make the trip.

Ryan Callahan is saying his heart is in New York, and there is no reason to disbelieve the captain. But when No. 24’s agent, Steve Bartlett, tells people he has “not closed the door to ongoing discussions with the Rangers” as he did on Friday, that doesn’t quite pack the same emotional wallop.

Trading Callahan to the Blue Jackets, with whom the Rangers are competing for a playoff spot and could conceivably meet in a cross-pollination first round, seems like a crazy idea, but the Blueshirts would sure have to think about it if Columbus would send 24-year-old Cam Atkinson, Chris Kreider’s Boston College Eagles teammate, to the Garden.
