The record you're suggesting, 3 Vezinas and 3 Cups, would be the best post-70s record after Roy, Hasek and Brodeur. You're talking about a top-10 type résumé.
I guess I just don't see what's so great about Lundqvist so far. Consistently very good in the regular season, with one Vezina. Somewhat gaudy numbers on a defensive team. Inconsistent in playoffs at best. Sometimes almost feels like more hype than substance.

Should be an OR instead of AND in my Cups/Vezinas post, though.

Anyway, right now I see his resume at barely half a Tim Thomas, and Tim Thomas is no top-30 material himself. Lot of ground for Lundqvist to make up.
