But, wait! Vokoun career save percentage, 0.917; Bryzgalov career save percentage, 0.916. Clearly Vokoun has the edge!
You should remove your sarcasm smiley from the career sv% line. Vokoun has been by far a better goalie so far throughout their careers. The only upside of Bryz over Vokoun at this point is age. Vokoun has been a top 5 goalie for the past 5 years, Bryz hasn't been.

Also GAA is more of a team stat than a goalie stat. Sv% is the most widely accepted goalie indicator.
