I'll drink to 4 straight 30-save shutouts.

Odd decision to start Henrik vs Colorado and Raanta against the superior team.

Schedule gets tougher. I wonder how AV will deploy the rotation with the Isles coming up, then two with the Caps and another with the Jackets.

They're going to have to start resting him more no matter how much he wants to play.
Not odd at all given the fact they wanted him to get his 400th win on home ice.

Video of Hank from his annual goalie clinic this weekend saying how he would never leave New York to get a cup.



It's either here, or no where. Go get it Hank.

I think Henrik would hang up his skates before playing for another franchise. He ain't Marty Brodeur.

Great credits at the end of that video.

It's great that he says that now while the team is contending but if this team takes a turn south in the next few years I'd really hope he'd consider moving somewhere else for a run at a Cup. I really don't to spend the rest of my life listening to Hank being called the best goalie to never win a Cup.

Sounds like a Ranger fan type of thing to do, though

With the current size of the league, there's going to be many current and future greats who never win a Stanley Cup. That's what happens in a 31 team league. I wonder when people will eventually realize this. Probably never, that's the nature of sports.

That's why I'm hoping he wins one, no matter which team it's with. And while you're correct about a lot of great players not winning a championship, as of right now he's pretty clearly the best goaltender ever to not have a Cup to his name. I would have absolutely no problem with him leaving this team to go to a contender (again, if this team should go south in the next few seasons).
