Aebischer was the Av's MVP this year IMO. The team in front of him played like crap for pretty much the entire SJ series. In the three games when they were facing elimination, the Av's scored a total of FOUR goals. Aeby carried them to two wins, but you have to score goals to win, and the big name players just didn't get it done.
Chokemanek put up better numbers than that last year. He didn't fare so well when he didn't have a superior team in front of him this year. Same goes for Swiss Cheese.

What Roy did in 01 was carrying his team when he made key saves. What Aebischer did this year (and for most part, his career) was hiding behind a great offense until he was actually tested at which point he folded like a lawn chair.
