Tim Thomas is another good example of a goalie who is inconsistent from year-to-year. He goes from being a mediocre goalie to a Vezina winner, and now he's struggling again.

People knock Lundqvist for being inconsistent from game-to-game, but compared to the rest of the league, he's still more consistent than most goalies in the league. He's no more inconsistent than Luongo, whom many consider to be the top goalie in the league. Lundqvist is on his game more often than not, as opposed to a Fleury or Theodore who are a bit of a wild card.
That's one of the things that most irritates me when people skewer Henke--they ***** and moan about how inconsistent he is. Do these people even have a cursory knowledge of goaltending outside of NY? It doesn't seem that way. He's very consistent by goalie standards, as you said.

I'd also like to note that his glove hand has been dynamite of late.


It's just pain.
