Brodeur has spent 9.5 seasons as starter behind Scott Stevens, 8 without him. 10.5 seasons with Niedermayer (though really only 1 with prime Niedermayer), 7 without him. If Broduer plays just 2 more seasons (unlikely with the damn lockout), he'll have played the majority of his career without Stevens

I more or less agree with TCG's order for "most helped by his defense."

Plante was actually hurt in awards voting by playin behind Harvey, I think. Only a 1st Teamer twice through leading the league in GAA 5 straight times. Then Harvey gets traded and Plante is immediately the Hart Trophy winner as the writers realize he wasn't a product of Harvey
Plus Jean Beliveau and Henri Richard miss 27 and 16 games respectively playing behind a defence of Jean Guy Talbot, Tom Johnson, J. C. Tremblay, Lou Fontinato and Al McNeill.
