Assuming that most people agree with me that Quick and Lundqvist have been the #1 and #2 goalies the past couple of years, and assuming that stays the same moving forward, I think it would be really interesting if they were in the same conference and met in the playoffs somewhat regularly. I think those matchups would have the potential to propel one (or possibly both) goalies to higher heights than they've already reached.
Who knows, maybe Lundqvist moves out west after this year (God, I hope not).
