Khabibulin left directly following the Stanley Cup season and went to a pretty crummy Blackhawks team were he couldn't stay healthy so I don't think its fair to point at him and say well he never replicated his performance. Though I do agree the team in front makes the goalie look better than he is many times, take Giggy with the Ducks and the Red Wings with Osgood for recent examples.
