We used that same reasoning for Hank the last few year about getting us in the playoffs and it didnt work. Well this year we would be about a 7-8 seed without him. I dont think you can be stunned if either one wins but I never see anyone mention the divisions they play in which are like night and day. Hank has been the most consistently good goalie since the lockout. I think Quick is a stud who is not a one year wonder......hell, Hank picked him as his first goalie at the all-star game so he definitely respects him. Also, regarding the shots are the ones from Malkin, Crosby, Giroux, Kovalchek tougher than those in the PAC division
Good luck in the playoffs going forward.
