I agree with Fletch, it's very easy to forget just how amazingly good Dunham was during that stretch.

The guy tied the Rangers shutout record in only 43 games, he had a 2.29 gaa and a .924 sv.pct and that was a pretty pitiful defensive team to boot. That of course says nothing of their offense.

The two highest scorers were only there for their scoring with other teams. Outside of them, Nedved was as close as the team came to a scorer that season.

It was all down hill for Dunham from there, but those 43 games were amazing. RIGHT up there with Lundqvist's first season.
