I didn't say he cannot, I believe he is capable. He can be better. 06 was his best year so far. If he wont play better than then or even at same level, he is on decline as team in front playing better defense every year since.

Boston has never been able to bail out Thomas when he had his night off. Yet he won SC for them. It is not about who bails out whom, it about not need to be when it is important. Richter was not as good G as Lundqvist is, but he could do what Hank can't.
