Maybe we shouldn't be so worried about Lundqvist being in his prime years?

Indeed. Not a ton of horizontal movement for Thomas, his D does a tremendous job of limiting those plays. Which is a good thing for him because that's how he gets lit up. Vancouver spent the entire series trying to put pucks through him and that isn't gonna happen.
Whereas a goalie like Henrik covers up a lot of defensive gaffs with good movement which in turn will wear his body down.
