HAV for clinching a playoff berth in a half-assed fashion. I’ve read a lot of Lundqvist apologists defending him because of the play in front of him, but let’s not mince facts here: the Lundqvist we have come to expect and the Lundqvist that has the highest cap hit in the league is supposed to do well even in the face of such adversity. This team is worlds better than some of the dreck that was in front of him in the latter Renney/early Torts years and he was just fine then. He needs to be better or this team is not going to win as long as his cap hit is on the roster.
A positive thing for AV: He sure knows how to push Miller’s buttons. If only he could figure out how to motivate the rest of his roster as well as he has Miller.
