Actually, I'm pretty convinced that Henrik Lundquist will eventually end up being considered a Top-30 goaltender of all-time (at the very least).

But the problem with current players is that there's still something left to be written about a player. And it's not like he had some kind of memorable Cup run, which would have helped his case. Give Cam Ward's cup run to Lundquist, and I see no reason why Lundqvist isn't a Top-30 (or really close to that) at the very moment. I mean, that would give him roughly the same number of excellent season than Tiny Thompson... with a lesser team all things considered.
