I left Hasek off because his playoff record speaks for itself. He had three post seasons with Detroit, two past the age of 40. He spent the bulk of his career on mediocre Sabres teams dragging them through the playoffs on three separate occasions. That '99 Sabres team had no business being in the SCFs. The '98 team had no business being in the CFs.

There is absolutely a team factor here. I don't deny that. That said, I've yet to see Lundqvist in his career steal a series. I've seen it from other goalies, including goalies I wouldn't put on Lundqvist's level. I'm sort of waiting for him to take the next step in his career, and establish himself someone who thrives in the playoffs.
