I wouldn't say Corey Schwab is 10X better than Biron, Miller or Noronen.

And before you think I am joking entirely:

Player GP Min GA GAA W L T Svs Pct EN SO
Corey Schwab 11.00 614 15 1.47 5 3 1 208 0.933 0 1
Martin Brodeur 73.00 4374 147 2.02 41 23 9 1559 0.914 4 9

NJ's defense sure as hell had something to do with it.

Stevens alone has 13 All Star game appearances (including one last year), 2 1st team All Star honors and 3 2nd team All Star honors (including one in 2001-2).

As good as Stevens is, Niedermayer has 2 All Star game appearances and one 2nd team All Star honor.

Rafalski had more points than Delmore did.

And Colin White is more of a physical presence than McKee used to be.

Buffalo's goaltending is closer to NJ's than our defense is to their's.
