Exactly. Much like goaltening stats in general...they are not black and white.
If you take the same Bryz and put him on Boston he will have nearly the same stats as Tim Thomas (Rask does). It's got nothing to do with the goaltender and everything to do with the solid defense played by Boston.
Put TT here, and I don't think his stats will be MUCH better, I do believe he is the better goaltender though. It's overwhelmingly a team game.
