I'd agree. But, lets not forget, both wins and shutouts are team stats.

Goaltenders can control those stats, especially wins, only so much. Teams win games, not goaltenders. I always thought the number of wins a goaltender gets, being the primary stat of focus for Vezina voting, being bogus. Goalies can put up a .925SV% and still have a losing record (look at Vokoun last year). In that case, his win total isn't indicative of his play.
