Antti Niemi (Consolations on losing Vezina)

Too bad he lost out on the Vezina. Am quite surprised that Bobrovsky won it.

Anyway, the hands-down MVP for SJ this season.

It's ok. The sting of losing this will not sit with him and he'll come in 2nd in Conn Smythe voting to Thornton next year to make up for it.

He ain't a failure! He's a better goalie than bob! But just as good as lundqvist so in my opinion NHL is the failure & being blast against the sj sharks

Agreed. We should package him and a first for Greiss.

No shame to Nemo. He had a fantastic season. Bobrovsky was just slightly better.

I believe he is the first goalie to ever win the Vezina and not make the playoffs..

We can't win a Vezina, it's just never going to happen.

We can't win a Vezina because we never deserved it.

This. Niemi and Nabokov have been strong, but both have never been the best.

I am among the biggest Nemo fans here, but you cannot deny Bobrovsky was better. He's still an amazing goalie who had an incredible year, and I expect him to continue his play.

Why? I love Nemo, but Bob has clearly been better.

Losing the Vezina does save Niemi from making congratulatory speeches. Can you guys imagine how those would go?

Bob deserved it this year. The year Nabby pitched the shut-out for the one period in the all star game, I felt he was the best that year. Still think Nabby deserved the V.

Hopefully, Niemi will continue to play this well and consistently for us for next few years. If he does, our future is brighter and he should win it eventually. Being a westie, he may need to be extra consistent (get into top 3) for few years before voters will give it to him.
