Last year was a little frustrating on the goaltending front- seemed to me that it was catch-22... If Salo was playing well, they kept playing him- why mess with success? If Salo was struggling, they kept playing him- gotta give him a chance to play through his slump.
Seems to me that this is about the part of last season that Jiri Dopita finally ran out of patience with Lowe and/or MacTavish. I believe it was when the Oilers got lit by the Bruins during the annual November road trip that Dopie became a healthy scratch. I can't help thinking that this "groin injury" that sent Salo home was awfully convenient.
A fair bit better?
.20 GAA better
.06 sv% better
hardly numbers to write home about.
Everyone seems to forget that Jussi's numbers dropped a lot more (proportionately) than Salo's did.
