That's just about what Enroth is doing right now, at least save percentage wise. Enroth's current save percentage is very close to Miller's career best season, which was 2009-10 where he put up a .929 save percentage. Enroth is at .923 today.
Miller's best 40-game stretch is much, much better than .914/2.60. I'm too lazy to look it up, but a couple years ago, he was putting up Hasek-like numbers for a good stretch - maybe a couple months or so at the start of the season. I can almost guarantee the 40 games that included that timespan were top-tier, elite numbers - much better and over a longer time span than anything Enroth has done so far.
Not so fast. That year was an anomaly for Miller. Ruff is asking for better than that from Miller? That's not even fair to Miller. Has Ruff just gone crazy?
So that's what Lindy is looking/hoping for - dominant, top-5 goalie in the league numbers, not career averages.
That's right. Lindy has proven that's the only way he can win games. With elite goaltending. Some coaching genius, huh?
