Two of the previously mentioned four are rookies who play well beyond their years (imagine them when they're seasoned!), Staal is elite, and Girardi is a usable 1st pairing guy, but better suited to the second pairing role. We have one more major D man to add before our defense can become scary. Let's say in two or three years our defense as a whole becomes elite with no holes. Is there any limit to what Henrik can do if this likely scenario occurs?

Elite D = easier games for an elite goalie = more shut outs.


Just for the record, there are four players tied for second place all time with 15 shut outs.
I believe Hank is one the real good goalies in the NHL but you are making it seem he is one of the all time greats in the history of the NHL..

This Ranger team had a really good NHL defense this year. They let up the 4th least amount of goals in the WHOLE NHL. Granted, Hank in goal does help but also this Ranger team defense was very good this year also
