Don't compare the numbers since other things have changed as well; everything has an impact on a goaltender's numbers. We don't know what numbers Lunkan would have had in the SEL last season.
Comparing goalie technique from ten years ago is equallt bad in that case. I agree that goalies have goten better technically but they have to be judged compared to thir peers during the time, both cross league and inter legue. The only european legue with better goaltenders was SM-Liiga. The state of goaltending in the SEL was not as bad as you want to make it out to be.
