You can put up any numbers you want as a goalie, but at some point you need an offense and a defense in front of you. If that offense and defense is going to be successful, you need depth. That means every extra talented skater you have makes you that much more of a dangerous team in the playoffs. A goalie is largely dependent on that skating core, if not almost completely.
Without Lundqvist, that team doesn't even make the playoffs.
