He's not horrible but it's been a very average. You think he'll get one vote for even 3rd for the Vezina. Don't think so. This is an off year for him. Face it.
You are going to tell me he's had a better year than Thomas, Rinne, Luongo, Hiller, Backstrom, Varlamov, Lunqvist, Vokoun, Cam Ward, Bryzgalov, Quick, Niemi?
I think it's very difficult to compare goaltenders on different teams. Any goaltender will tell you that the Vezina is impossible to achieve without strong team defense.

And I also don't think there's any doubt that last year's Sabres team was not only better defensively, but played a much more defensive style (especially over the first half of the season - I've posted team GF - GA stats on that a couple of times).
