Ty Conklin is a very capable NHL back-up goaltender...

Using your criteria, Jason LaBarbera is an NHL #1 Goalie. He's #22 in GAA!!!
Well then by your argument there are less than 30 #1 goalies in the league. So how many #1 goalies are there? 10?

I believe that some teams probably have more than one goalie who is capable of being a #1 goalie. Remember when the Sharks had Nabokov and Kiprusoff? or when the Canadiens had Price and Huet?
