Lundqvist was fantastic overall in 2012 as his team lost - Giacomin never had such a run. Lundqvist was terrible in 2006, but Giacomin was terrible on multiple occasions.
Lundqvist's GAA has increased in 3 playoffs and decreased in 3 playoffs (which is fairly poor, GAAs should go down in the playoffs).
Giacomin's GAA has risen in 5 playoffs, decreased in 3 playoffs, and remained the same in 1 (which worse)
I'm really not finding a modern goalie who has a chance to be considered, who was statistically anywhere close to as poor as Giacomin was in the playoffs.
Maybe I badly worded my idea.
The Giacomin's Rangers often ended up losing against teams they should have lost to anyways.
