I mean - Kevin Hatcher. Jeff Finley. Rmun Ndur. Rich Pilon. Leetch and Beukeboom were like minus 30 some of those years. See what I'm saying?
Not really. Richter was hurt and when he did play, he wasn't able to drag those horrible teams to the playoffs. His team success is relative to the years that he had a great team in front of him. I don't think Lundqvist has ever had a great team in front of him.

And no, I don't think Lundqvist is great either, but if his next 7 years look anything like his first 8, he will be. The cup has nothing to do with it.
