We haven't? Why did the likes of Bathgate and Howell get their numbers retired after the '94 team players?
There is another player from the Garden who dominated every statistical category but did not win a championship. As much as New Yorkers love him that silly "team accomplishment" at the end of the year that is missing from a players bio really seems to be an albatross.
This town is no different than any other. We likes winners. Until Lundqvist gets deep into the playoffs, let alone win a cup, regardless of what team is in front of him, he'll just be another loser with pretty numbers.
I am not trying to downplay Hank. I voted for him + Richter. But I'll have to give the edge to 35 over 30 for this reason alone, it really is the trump card.
