Exactly. You wonder what factor the shortened season will play in this as well. Bob has great stats... for a 32 game sample size. The exact wording is that the award goes to the goalie "adjudged to be the best at this position." There might be some doubt that Bob is the best, simply because of the small sample. And while that small sample applies to all goaltenders, Lundqvist has at least proven that he's capable of it over a large sample.
