yes, the flyers chose burke over kolzig. i thought that was dumb. however, as i suspected, you say that caps fans overrate kolzig. maybe so. most of the media and most of the former nhl types that i see on tv rated kolzig as by far the best "available" goalie this season.

its hard to really rate kolzig as a layman. he is played on average to above average teams, but never an elite level team. his playoff stats are about the best among all nhl goalies in the playoffs. he has the best save % and about the best gaa, but his win/loss record isn't good. who do you blame the lost series on? the goalie or the lack of scoring? while he has won playoff series in only one year, he took an average team to the finals that year. he has the finals trip in one season and a vezina two years later. so he is not a flash in the pan.

i don't think kolzig is overrated at all. but its certainly something you can argue about.
