It's a nice article - I know why he didn't include them, but it would be interesting to see other top netminders included in the emulsion.
Interesting - and really highlights the steep droppoff in play Sawchuk experienced (and his ridiculously high prime).

In regards to shutouts especially, Sawchuk was virtually "average" after his first 7 years (with a toal of 29.84) while Brodeur has been much more consistent with not nearly as high of a prime (Brodeur is 14.46 in his first 7 seasons; 19.43 in his best 7 years from 22 - 28).
