Howard is nowhere near Quick
He also has a tendency to seem to get worse in the playoffs while Quick is a playoff monster...
You are basing this on one playoff run, from this past season. Yes, he was phenomenal, but have you seen his stats the previous playoff runs that LA has had?
2010/11 : 2 Wins 4 Losses 3.16 GAA .913 SV%
2009/10 : 2 Wins 4 Losses 3.50 GAA .884 SV%
I am not saying Quick isn't a solid goaltender, he is, but to say Howard cannot play as well as Quick had this past post-season is a tad ridiculous. Before Howard was injured in the reg season, he was on track to be, at least, a Vezina nominee.... I don't think we've seen the true measure of how well Howard can play in the post-season yet, just as prior to this season, the same could have been said for Quick.
