Look at what our backup did. Biron, had he not been hurt, probably would have finished with better numbers (not wins obviously) than Henrik. Proves that the Rangers (during the regular season) are a good defensive team and both goalies benefit from it.
I think Lundqvist would have been a finalist because he single-handed kept the Rangers alive for almost two months down the stretch, but that horrible stretch February ultimately did him in.
But statistically Luongo beat Henrik in the Big 3. It's not his fault he plays for a great team. He had a better year, plain and simple.
Plus, nobody seems to mention the massive injuries on Vancouver's defense this year. I'm sure that played a role.
