Saying Lundqvist doesn't compare to Thomas means he sucks and is inconsistent? Lundqvist has been one of the best and most consistent goalies in the league for years. But he has not played on the level that he is playing on this season yet. Can you even argue that? Thomas has been playing on a record-setting pace for years (minus the injury season).
And by sucking I assume you mean setting records in Finland. He didn't get a chance because of his style, but once he did, he dominated. Are we talking about who had more NHL success 6 years ago now though?
Ha, uh, yeah. When you previously mentioned that Lundqvist was inconsistent, yeah, I'm going to mention 6 seasons of record setting goaltending. Hey, that sounds like your boy, record setting. I like that you're changing your tune after getting learned, rook. Lundqvist has carried sub par teams and he's done it with some impressive numbers. Now he has a team that learned their coaches system, got some chemistry, found a group of very good defenseman, and a forward corp that forechecks the hell out of the other team and they back him up with goals. How is that different that the Bruins over the last few seasons? It's not, and low and behold Lundqvist puts up numbers that rival Thomas'. If Thomas is on another level than Lundqvist, than he is hands down one of the best to ever play and head and shoulders the best today. That's a strong statement on a good day and just untrue any other. Get your head out of the clouds if you want to post on another team's board with fishing posts, or go back home.
The Hawks PP looks so damn good because they have 3-4 first line caliber forwards on the ice during it at any given time. The Rangers can't exactly match that.
However you don't need several 1st line caliber players to move around a PP do you? There are PPs around the league that very successful but aren't as star laden as the Hawks' is. (Montreal in past years, Preds currently).
Are we just missing a certain type of player on our PP or does the whole system need to redone?
Has DeBoer gone on record as to why he gets an absurd amount of ice time so early in games?
Well is he simply circling around the ice, lazily back checking and what not? If he is playing both sides of the ice, then to be fair to Deboer and Kovy, the man has unreal stamina. If he can handle it without breaking down, why shouldn't he do it?
Edit: I asked this a month ago but does anyone know wtf is going on with Paul Stastny? The guy was considered a #1 center (albeit perhaps a low end one) and a lock for 70 points. What has happened to that player?
