I will just note that Sawchuk's 103 shutouts seemed like the most untouchable record in all of sports for decades.

I remember in '93 when Mogilny and Selanne hit 76 goals, (and Hull had had 86 a few years before), pundits wondered; "will anyone ever break Gretz' 92 goals record?" The answer was yes, "any record can be broken....except of course Sawchuk's 103 shutouts."

It truly seemed beyond the realm of possibility. Then came the trap, lol.

The lesson is: all records can be broken.
