If you look back I had been pimping Lundqvist out 2 years before he came over.

his numbers were un-real an the composure he showed in the (admittedly biased vide clips) were mature well beyond his years.

Now, I'm not saying I knew it all along. I got lucky that his style was able to translate as well as it has to the NA game, but I knew he was going to be a very good goalie. Just not this good.
