I think so. Their defense is not good enough to do to a goaltender what the Philly and Hawks defense did to Leighton and Niemi. Even then, Leighton and Niemi looked downright bad at times even with that elite defense. Whichever team has Henrik playing at 100% during last SCF wins the cup. A REAL hot goaltender in the playoffs was Halak, who has shown that he is capable of being a rock solid starter in this league, so I don't even think hecould really be classified as hot as much as a GOOD goaltender. I don't think anyone the Caps have played with in net yet are able to do that.
I'll take it a step further- I think we'd be able to beat the Capitals because of Henrik.Of course, it's just a difference of opinions which is totally cool, but I think Hank is an absolutely integral part of this team now and into the future.
