Plus only an idiot looks at save % for goalies the way the game is played today as a huge indicator. Probably 85% of a goalies save percentage is based on the team in front of him. If you put Brodeur on the Rangers team 3 years ago his numbers would blow. The defense Blackburn had in front of him his rookie year might be one of the worst 5 in NHL history. While Pitt's defense was hardly good, it was not as bad as the Rangers defense 3 years ago. I've never seen any defense let up more high quality shots on goal.
