Listing their teams' accomplishments is largely pointless. The important thing is whether they stop pucks, and in that category, Price is a better goalie than Fleury. With his performance this season Fleury's career save percentage has inched up to .908. For Price this would be considered a subpar season (.905 was considered an epic disaster for him).

Using team accomplishments to evaluate goaltending is the silliest cliché there is. I wish more people would stop and think about it for a minute, because it makes no sense. But people don't and it's going to make Chris Osgood into a Hall of Famer.
Agreed through and through.
