The argument is that Lundqvist is not being assessed as a PROSPECT fairly. All of the things that you have mention are things that happen at the NHL level; no goalie prospect has much if any NHL experience at all. How can we use this as a point specifically aimed at Lundqvist while we don't know how any goalie prospect will fair against the points you mentioned? Do we know how Montoya will act under these conditions? Not playing with college players we will not. The bottom line is that the SEL is a much more indicative of the level of play in the NHL than the NCAA or juniors. Not to mention that this year the SEL has over 30 NHL players in the league.
i agree in general with this...(well maybe not with the SEL being more indicative of success in the NHL)

lundqvist is underrated i think, partly cuz he was a late round pick and partly because he's off in sweden. out of sight, out of mind as it were

he's basically done everything he can to make his case as being an elite goaltending prospect, we just gotta see how he does over here. he has probably as good a shot as any to become a good NHL goalie. can't wait to see him next year
