SO in other words im saying what chimp said only in a nicer way lol.

Heres another way to look at it. Look at Ottowa's record. Same # of wins right? 7. Now look at Anderson's numbers.
I don't think it's any worse with Hank, it's just that we obviously watch more of his goalie work than all of the other goalies combined. Of course all the other so called "elite" goalies in the league struggle from time to time. Hank is no different than and no better than 5 or 6 other goalies in the league. There really isn't one goalie anymore that stands out head and shoulders above all the others like when Brodeur was in his prime and Hasek and Roy were in the league.
