This times a thousand. He faced 20+ shots that period, and the majority of them were ridiculous quality. RIDICULOUS. The Dallas period is one of the best periods I can remember him playing as a Ranger. And that says a lot.
You know, for all the crap Lundqvist has gotten this season, for the last couple of months, really dating back to January, he has been an absolute rock for us in net.
And he is a big reason, amongst others, that we're moving toward a playoff position.
I do think, since January, that he is arguably been our best player during this long stretch (only other player you can make an argument for is McDonagh, and that's really it). Guy gets way too much flack IMO.
He has had an inconsistent yr and is currently playing exceptional.
Why twist the facts when most here know the truth?
I lol @ how excited Criers fans were over Sean Couturier. I said for about a year before he was drafted that I wasn't overly impressed with his offensive skills and that he'd probably be a 2nd/3rd line two-way player.
I think I can say my prediction has been pretty accurate so far.
There are very few Flyers fans, at least realistic fans, who see Couturier as a definite first line centre. If he ends up being a steady 2nd line centre with his elite defensive ability, I will be ecstatic.
And regardless, after this year he will have a whopping 2.5 seasons under his belt. Hardly enough time to pass judgement or pump up your prediction

Ya not even remotely close.
Couturier and Voracek for Carter. We take that all day
Wish Staal would get back to normal. People rant about Girardi's lack of poise with the puck, but at this point I just assume every time Staal has the puck that he's either going to turn it over or make a bad panicked pass that our guy can't control and subsequently turns over. It's infuriating.
