It's been a pretty good millennium for the goaltenders' union so far, at least as far as the Stanley Cup playoffs are concerned. Netminders have won five of the 11 Conn Smythe Trophies handed out to the NHL postseason MVP since 2001, including each of the past two years. Those last two performances by Tim Thomas in 2011 and Jonathan Quick this spring have been among the most dominant exhibitions of puck-stopping in hockey history. Thomas appeared to set a standard no one would meet for ages when he led the Bruins to the Cup in a remarkable run last...

Tim Thomas' remarkable postseason run in 2011 was thought to be the kind of performance hockey fans are lucky to see once in a generation. Turns out it took just one year to see a netminder perform even better on hockey's biggest stage. That's no knock on Thomas, without whom the Bruins would not have ended their 39-year Cup drought last year. Instead, it's a reflection...

Did Jonathan Quick have a better Stanley Cup run than Tim Thomas last year?

They’re in the books now, and Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings and Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins can be compared now side by side. Thomas, of course, had a phenomenal run last year between the pipes for Boston, but certainly was not the bench mark for this year’s finals.
