No doubt. Henrik seems to be a real good guy and there's obviously a case for him winning but not by as much as he did. It wasn't unexpected though. Most of the folks that talk about Quick never watched him play prior to these playoffs. It's no different than when Doughty was in play for the Canadian Olympic team and all the fans around the league were moaning and griping about it, saying he was overrated, too young, played in the "weaker" Western Conference, etc. The Kings fans, the ones that were actually watching him play knew they were all wrong and they'd eat their words. And eat they did.
Again Henrik won by the margin he did because Quick lost some votes to Rinne, having two western conference goalies they're going to split some votes while Henrik will most likely take the majority of Eastern votes.
