My thread on the main board:

This thread is to all of the haters, including MYSELF, (I called Lundqvist the Peyton Manning of QBs (outside of Peyton's ring)). Anyway, all of the haters including MYSELF keep saying that he underperforms in the playoffs. I present you all with the stats:

Regular season:

GAA: 2.25
Save %: 0.920
Shutouts: 45


GAA: 2.24
Save %: 0.921
Shutouts: 8

Now for those that think shutouts are very important (I'm not one of those). In the regular season he has a shutout about 9% of the games and in the playoffs about 13%.

Also was the 4th time in NHL history that a goalie shutout a team in game 6 and 7. If we scored 1 goal in game 2, he'd have 3 shutouts against the best offensive team in the league to end the season.

These stats also include his rookie year when was he worn out by the Olympics and was suffering from a migraine. He played 3 games with a 4.41 GAA and 0.835 Save %. An outlier that skews the stats less and less with every game, but skews the stats nonetheless.

P.S. Please don't make this into a Quick thread.
