On a per-game basis that year, Turco beat Brodeur in everything. Wins, shutouts, GAA, save percentage, everything. The difference between them was games played. I agree that the voters probably weighted games played very highly in their choice. I disagree with that weighting, and that's why I think that Vezina was undeserved.
Well I'm sorry if we had this discussion in 03 my reasoning would be a little solid.
Goals really have nothing to do with it. That was dumb.
I was wrong; Brodeur played in 21 more games. He played in 90% of his teams games as opposed to 63%.
For every 2 games Turco played Brodeur played 3.
That should be weighted heavily when comparing statistics. If you think otherwise, I disagree and move on.
And again voting is not based solely on stats; otherwise Turco would have won in '02-'03 and Roloson would have won in '03-'04.
