Absolutely agree. I've gone on record saying that I thought he was second only to Miller that season. Which is why it bothers me when Rask has been used to discredit Thomas in these threads since Round 7.

Statistics from Doctor No:

Goals Above Replacement-Level: Regular Season + Playoffs
Thomas: 371.4 in 428 games
Lundqvist: 364.9 in 523 games

Support-Neutral Winning Percentage: Regular Season + Playoffs
Thomas: 239-173, 58.0%
Lundqvist: 288-228, 55.8%
