I am sure if we had Mason in net we would not need to read what Larry had to write. Mason is no Hank, but he is performing on NHL level NOW, while Lundqvist isn't. It is a chance for Talbot to perform on NHL level. No more than that is needed.
Its been so rare over the past 8 years, that you Lundqvist haters get all giddy when he struggles for a few games. He'll be fine. You know why? Because hes been more than fine for almost a friggin decade -- and being the goaltender is the only dominant player on the team, the team is/has been built from the crease outward. Party because Lundqvist is great, and partly because Glen Sather is so bad at building a team.

You're trying to frame this bad start on Lundqvist's play. Hes been bad. The team has been worse. And there you have it. If this team picks up its play immensely and Lundqvist still has a 3+ GAA, then you might approach a point. But for now, you are woefully lost as usual.
