As of right now my vote would be for Henrik for Vezina. He's got the better numbers and isn't a one year wonder (like Bob). We've seen lots of goalies go nuts for a season and then fall back to earth. I'm always hesitant to give that kind of award when a guy is having a breakout year.
Why?

The Vezina goes to the best goalie for a particular season in the NHL. Its not given to the best goalie over the several seasons. One year wonder or not, if a guy is having an incredible year he deserves to be in the discussion. Their previous play or any other goalie's previous play should be irrelevant.
