Crawford is better than a mediocre goalie, but he isn't a top of the line goalie either, and neither is Niemi.

Answer this, would Niemi have won a Cup on any other team in 2010? No.

As for any other goalie winning the cup with Chicago this year, the answer is clearly no. Not every goalie in the league is as good as Crawford, there are some goalies who are considerably worse.
Thank you for finally agreeing with my point from WAY back in the beginning.....BOTH goalies benefitted from the system that chicago plays and not so much their skill level. Ive said all along that the shot blocking safety first defence chicago played was the reason they won both cups, why do you think they felt comfortable lettiing niemi go after 2010...because it was the system and not the goalie that won.

So you don't think Loungo, Rask,Kipper,Lehtonen,Lundqvist,and the likes wouldn't have won with that chicago D in front of them?!?!?!?!? Wow
