See, I think the defensive-minded players in front of Lundqvist really helped him throughout his career - not that there's anything wrong with that! The problem is that then there's no way to quantify what that's meant to his legacy.

I submit that this season to this point has shown how Lundqvist would fare in a wide-open system. He's definitely not bad but he's not the guy we all remember. Suddenly when the team picks up its play, he looks better - but strangely everyone starts looking better.

It's weird that way.
