Sorry, but Lundqvist should win this. Bob's stats are ever so slightly better, but not nearly enough to make him be that first goalie to win it for a non-playoff team. Not to mention that Lundqvist and Niemi played 14 percent more hockey than Bob, the equivalent of 7 more games, and both won enough games to get their teams in. Bob had a great season, but not great enough to be that first guy to win this without making the playoffs.
Cannot base this on stats alone. I know you watched a lot of Columbus games...Bob was ridiculous.
