Led the league 6 straight years in save percentage. And by plenty.

And he didn't get to the NHL until he was 26 and wasn't the #1 on his team until he was 29.

Lindros' accomplishments pale in comparison.
Arena bias is not taken into consideration. In New Jersey they had a -2.4 shot bias from 94-07. Buffalo had an average bias of +1.1 shots per game. Hasek still leads sv% and probably by bit but not quite what it is made out to be.

I can't take away from his accomplishments once again, he was voted by people who watch more then you or I (I would hope). But peak performance is only one part of the equation when evaluating a career.
