Exactly my point. Coyote fans will throw up Burke's impressive regular season stats and say "he can do it in the playoffs" based on his stats. Yet they, and anyone else, will say that Cechmanek can't get the job done in the playoffs. [Not in this thread, at least not yet, but it's been beaten to death in numerous threads in the past and seems to always come up.] Well, Cechmanek has better stats than Burke. If Sean Burke is going to be painted with a certain brush--that brush being his save percentage as an indicator that he can and will be good in the playoffs--then Cechmanek, and all goalies, must be painted with that brush too, and vice versa. Otherwise, we have a double standard.
