Most of all, he's really not that great and is very inconsistent. As a casual Avs fan, I've seen enough to know. Among the other candidates, Henrik can out perform all of them. bad 1st quarter of the season and the other 3 quarters remain for him to defend his trophy. He's been decent for a few games now stringing together 4 wins and hopefully the team will start to dominant and play well defensively. I am one for never giving up hopes on his 30 win streak and Vezina.
Does winning another Vezina really matter that much? Hank is the least of our problems although I do believe that the organization needs to start thinking about drafting then developing another goalie in the next 3-5 years.
Pekka Rinne is a great goalie also who plays in a much more defensive oriented system in Nashville because of their lack of offense.
Hank will be fine; he's just never going to be a world beater when it comes to handling the puck.
