These players were mediocre when Ward won? Really?

That top 6 crushes our current top 6. Crushes.

And by the way, Martin Gerber carried the goaltending for most of that regular season.

Lundqvist is a superior NHL goalie who may be doomed by being surrounded by overrated players.
Your 100 % correct, Hank is doomed by his supporting cast but some of the blinded by their loyality idiots who post on this forum will have you believe that our top 6/9 can compete with the elite teams in the league. Oh yeah, you overlooked one thing, 05/06 was a year of off the chart offensive numbers; just look at our team with Jagr, Straka, Nielander, Prucha, etc. The fact still remains Ward carried his team to the cup and won the Conn Smythe in the process and then carried a pathetic 08(?) team to the conference final vs the Pens.
Hank is no better than Ward and 4 or 5 other goalies in the league!
