However, Crosby has been much more consistent than Lundqvist has. So if they are going to be paid roughly equal, I want to see Lundqvist play like a superstar just about every game. I'll give the guy a pass now and then just like Crosby has a bad game or two (maybe one or two out of every 30 or so).

You've yet to explain how anything I have said is outlandish.
More consistent? I guess you mean when Crosby is actually on the ice and wasn't sitting out large swaths of seasons with concussion issues.

But what I really mean is that you're basically stating here that Lundqvist BETTER NOT give up what you, the almighty Jonathan, deem soft goals. He must be elite every game. Every goalie in the history of the sport have given up multiple "soft" goals person season. Every one. From Steve Valiquette to Patrick Roy. Outlandish expectations from you.
