Henrik Lundqvist said on June 12th, I think he's been so steady ever since he came to New York. He's such a humble and quiet guy, you don't talk that much about him. But you always know what he's going to bring. He sees the game really well. He's a really smart player with and without the puck. So he definitely deserves more credit, I think. He's someone that you can use in a lot of different situations, I think. He can play physical, but he can also, like I said, be extremely smart with the puck. So, you know, obviously yesterday he was in the right place a couple times. But that's just him playing his game. I think he's meant a lot to this team for a long time now.
When asked if Stralman was underrated, Lundqvist said "Definitely. He has so much talent. I think his game is so steady, I really do. As a goalie, when you have a defenseman in front of you that's so calm, you know, making good decisions with and without the puck, it definitely helps me relax and brings me confidence, too."
Dave Maloney said during the Stanley Cup Final, "Anton Stralman has been a real good player and you can make the case that from day one to now he could be the Rangers top defender. He has morphed into a legit top-four defender."
