. They don't let you keep playing for more than four games when you're terrible. Heck, the Rangers only let him play in three games of the sweep.
We can't be looking at playoff runs like that though. It's one of his six bites at the apple.
This line of thinking drives me mad, because it's one out of seven seasons, and his first one I might add....
Every goalie available at this point has flaws, and if Lundqvist biggest relevant flaw was basically sucking during his first playoffs, when he was never really used to play that many games, well, he should be first in every ranking. (Full discloser : Lundqvist didn't make my Top-6, but made my final ranking).
One bad year doesn't make him a bad playoff performer.
