My canned response: are there any goalies with "a few" Vezinas who are NOT in?
Exactly my point, with a few meaning two or more. The point I was trying to make is that it's not a lone Vezina that's gonna get him in.

If you look at those who have only one on their resume in the last 30 years.

Ryan Miller (2009-10)
Miikka Kiprusoff (2005-06)
Jose Theodore (2001-02)
Olie Kolzig (1999-2000)
Jim Carey (1995-96)
Ron Hextall (1986-87)
Beezer (1985-86)
Pelle Lindbergh (1984-85)
Tom Barrasso (1983-84)
Pete Peeters (1982-83)

Only Barrasso has a Cup(s) and a Vezina and is not in the HHOF. The majority of the players, while very good and all with a similar range of wins (250-350, with Carey being the lone exception) are still on the outside looking in. What would make Henrik any different?
