Your AHL PLayoffs MVP

Shoutout to Binghamton Senators goalie and super Sens prospect Robin Lehner, who was awarded the 2011 AHL playoffs MVP after the series clinching win tonight. This is a massive deal because Lehner is just NINETEEN years old. Yes 19! The Swedish rookie went 14-4 with a 2.10 GAA, a .939 save % and 3 shutouts. Not bad for your first pro season right. Congratulations goes out to Robin from Sens Town and all Sens fans everywhere.

Thoughts on the rook taking home the MVP award?

First let me congratulate the 2011 Binghamton Senators for bringing home the Calder Cup. GO BABY!!!

Secondly, I'd like to congratulate Robin Lehner on DESERVEDLY winning the AHL Playoff MVP award. As Kurt Kleinendorst said, if lehner is not in the net, this thing doesn't get done. He was a monster out there in the playoffs, he worked on and improved so many percieved weaknesses in his game, especially his temperment. He was calm and cool in the net all playoffs long. Never got too high, never too low, even after being pulled. So kudos to him.

However, i think we need to remember that he IS only 19 years old, and he's not the 2nd coming of Patrick Roy. All you have to do is look to the recent example of Carey Price to realize that the longer we can convince him to learn and grow in the AHL, the better.

I'd love to see him play at least one if not two more years in the AHL before backing up Craig Anderson in Ottawa.
