Yup definitely true. This is a much better way of thinking. Any other goalie would have made all the same saves as Leighton plus the ones he didn't make. The lack of a third pairing defense and no offense from your three best players would not have had an effect on him whatsoever. The goalie is what makes the team. That is why for the past five years it has been Luongo vs. Lundqvist in the finals every single year and the games have been 1-0 every time.
