Brodeur was ranked too highly last time and I think us compensating for his overratedness outweighed his last Vezina.
I definitely took what you said about Brodeur to heart, TDMM. But when I look at everything from a wide variety of statistical angles (AND consider the puckhandling x-factor) I see a great, not quite top-6, goalie who benefitted from TONS of team-dependent factors.
Take solace in the fact that the majority of the voters did not agree with me that Dryden was better and that he was virtually even with Tretiak.
My honest prediction is that whenever this is revisited, he will drop further, even if he pads his career with 1-2 more decent seasons. Tony Esposito + cups is a good comparison.
