There is only one Vezina between those two guys though you could argue that Osgood should maybe have won the Conn Smythe over Zetterberg. Both guys were closer to Nemo than Thomas or even Quick.
I don't care, because Niemi is a 3.5+ million #1 goalie in the NHL. Something Crawford isn't.

Wings weren't cheap or "average". They knew that goaltending - especially in the POs - is important. They paid those goalies too and didn't go that cheap

right, but the point was that they added goaltending - not for cheap
