It's just much easier to contribute as a D than G. A below average D takes regular shift during playoffs. An average one also plays on special teams. A below average goalie sits on the bench during the playoffs. An average one never gets past first or second round. As soon as the team improves, he had to be dumped.

Think of it this way. In 1994, Glenn Healy was a much better athlete than Doug Lidster, but Lidster contributed much more vs. The Debbies and the Cans.
