I'm going to assume you think I'm going to say that we shouldn't extend him? Read what I wrote in the post-game thread and his thread. I get on him when he plays like he did in game 1. When you have the skills he's shown in games 2, 5, 6, and 7, you should get heat when you put together the kind of game he did in game 1.
I know. You cant blame me after seeing the tirade you put on after Game 1. It was a little over the top and heat of the moment though.
Meh I still think he is over rated. Win a cup than talk to me about his stats.
Phenomenally telling stat that makes this opinion seem quite invalid.
18 games In the PO where he faces 30 or MORE shots.
18 GP 1.41 GAA .941%.
Now what does this tell you about his abilities and his PO record? Here's the most important and most telling stat.
Again EIGHTEEN games played. 1.41 GAA and .941% while facing 30 or MORE SHOTS IN EVERY SINGLE ONE THOSE 18 GAMES and his record?
WHAt!? THE!? ****!?
What would you say about henrik and more importantly the team if after 18 GP in the regular season henrik faced 30+ shots per game, had those stats and the team was only 9-9!? We'd be trying to form lynch mobs!
The guy was the MVP of the SEL, won it's championship AND won Olympic GOLD. The guy is a SC winner on a team with any sort of competence in its compostion
I mean you sometimes have to have some semblance of an ability to look objectivity at this stuff when it's a TEAM game. Barry Sanders is one of the best RB of all time. Didn't win a Lombardi. Curtis Martin, Dan Marino, Patrick Ewing for BBall you can list guys who played perfectly well in the PO's, more then well enough to win and were all world players but /c it's a team game and there are so many other factors in it sometimes you just can't get that championship.
To blame Lundqvist and not appreciate how phenomenal he is b/c of a lack of a cup is downright insane to me

henrik seems to be the equivalent of felix hernandez in baseball. dominant in each of their respective positons and have even won the top awards for their position, felix the cy young in 2010 and henrik with the vezina last year. thing is both dont have much of an offense to back them up. oh and both of their nicknames are king lol
home teams should win every playoff game thats why its called home field advantage.. but lundy has let a few softies but my god the amount of PPs we've been given we should have dominated in the reg season, beat washington in 5-6games and be up in this series.. its a joke and travesty bc we should be in a lot better shape then down 0-2...i wish clowe was back.. no to be savior but he helped us out a lot on the pp..and hes a playoff performer..
