Jaromir Jagr tying for first star though - I guess others (a lot of others) have a higher opinion of his playoff performances than I do.

I guess the "you can't win by making a goalie your first pick" was proven false.
...and thank God it was. I hate hearing that, more than almost anything. People love to say it's the most important position in the game. But don't pick your goalie first. That makes no sense. Guys like Roy, Plante, Hasek - they didn't get ranked from 10-16 on the two revisions of the HOH top-100 just because we had to put goalies there. It's because we determined through our discussions and debates and stats and everything else, that they contributed about as much value as a Mikita, Bourque, or Morenz. (and getting Plante at 23rd between Lidstrom and Robinson? fuhgettaboutit) For your goalie to suddenly not be as important in an ATD setting would be rather troublesome.
