Tell us what you really feel. Those Vezina nominations and Vezina Trophy must've been bogus, because you see what most others don't.

As for his goaltending strategy of playing deep in net, take that up with Benoit Allaire, I'm sure you can give him alot of great pointers how to play the goaltending position. You want to hear the philosophy behind playing deep in net and why Allaire feels it's worth it? No? Didn't think so, you just want to whine on the last part that is wrong on this roster, because you don't like him. Because he made one mistake and your world is falling apart. Oh no, Hank has played 3 bad games so far this season. Call the suicide hotline, he's done for!

Does Henrik Lundqvist much more often than not help his team win a game than folding it? Don't lie to yourself. As for your expected standard of what a "softie" is, I bet it's a whole lot stricter than for any other goalie in the league. The Henrik Lundqvist syndrome. That's what happens when you get spoiled and gain tunnel vision.

This bipolar place will never change.
My opjnion of Hank hasn't and won't change since he became the starter here and that's this:

He is in a group of 4-5 goalies who are amongst the top goalies in the league at present. I firmly believe that Hank has thrived in the defensive oriented system he has played in first under Tom Renny and then under Tortorella.

While his level of consistency since 2005/06 has been remarkable, his overall game hasn't really improved since then either.

Considering his age and his style which really isn't conducive to remaining productive into his twilight years, I wouldn't go longer than 5-6 years @ $7-7.5 mil.

Now about softies; that goal he let in the other nite was inexcusable!
