I don't understand... if he didn't let in so many so-called "softies", why is his career GAA so low?

Real answer: 1.) Henrik's style make his saves look really easy in general, so when you see him get beat, it looks worse and 2.) Sometimes shooters just beat goaltenders, no matter how good they are.

And the real reason he doesn't have Vezinas is because of a combination of his consistency and the fact that every year, some other goalie seems to have an out-of-this-world season, while Lundqvist just continues his steady excellence.
