Roloson and Puppa are the starting goalies. Both played in pretty close eras. Puppa was 2nd and 3rd in Vezina voting, Roloson was 6th and 9th in Vezina voting with the 9th being only 3 points. Puppa was 2nd and 5th in all star voting, Roloson was 7th and 8th with the 8th being only 8 points. Here's a look at top 10s:


Puppa: 5, 7, 8, 9
Roloson: 2, 3


Puppa: 2, 3, 6
Roloson: 1, 2


Puppa: 3, 6, 9, 9, 10
Roloson: 8


Puppa: 1, 9
Roloson: none

Both had the misfortune of playing on pretty crappy teams throughout their careers. And for Roloson, those strong finishes in SV% and GAA were under Minnesota's very defensive system that enhanced goalies' numbers. The only thing that Roloson has that Puppa doesn't is 2 strong playoff runs, with the Lightning and Oilers. But, I don't think it's enough to make up for Puppa's advantages in other areas.
