While we're on the topic, if Lundqvist wins a cup in NY, he likely ends up in the Hall as well. He's almost there as it is.
You have to remember, it's the HOCKEY hall of fame, not just the NHL hall of fame.
Only goalie in NHL history to begin his career with six consecutive 30+ win seasons (soon to be 7, and possibly many many more)
Nominated for Vezinas in each of his first three years in the NHL.
He won the award for best goalie in the SEL three years in a row.
He won the player of the year of the SEL.
He won the MVP as voted by the players of the SEL.
He won an Olympic Gold Medal.
During the 2005 season for Frolunda, he broke four Swedish national records: lowest goals against average (1.05), highest save percentage (.962), longest goalless streak (172 min 29 sec), and most shutouts in a season (6).
He won two league championships with Frolunda.
Its a fairly safe assumption that he wins at least one Vezina before he's done (if he keeps up his current pace, he will win it this year). So it really comes down to a cup, and to be honest, if he continues his high level of consistency for another 7-10 years, he absolutely gets in even if he doesn't win a cup (knock on wood).
