Or is the East more offensive because it had seven of the ten worst defensive teams? I think that's also somewhat offset by the gaps in their respective team's offenses during the regular season, and that slimmer margin for error coupled with Quick's increase in games played was the difference for me vs. Lundqvist's wins/slightly better save%/quality of division.

And Lundqvist's season certainly passed muster for a Vezina year, and it's a shame because Quick and Smith each had very, very excellent cases.
