For all we know it could have been higher if he played the same amount of games.
See, this is why I can't take the Ludnqvist fan club seriously. The Rangers were top ten in shots allowed in each of the first three seasons after the lockout and had a top ten offense in 2006. Them being a stingy defensive team returned in 10-11 and has been the case every season since. But you "only would have made the playoffs once" in a league that is structurally designed to have two below average teams in the playoffs at any given time.

And because Quick and Smith each played more games and had slightly lower save percentages, and because every season where Lundqvist has played more, his numbers are worse.
