He also had a particularly slow start to the season in 1997-98.

Through 20 games: 6-10-3, 3.12 GAA, .898 SPCT, 1 SO, 8-12 (40%) Quality Games

It's one of those seasons where the results of the trophy voting would have been interesting in a 1st-Half, 2nd-Half context. It's a decent amount of baggage for two Hart trophy seasons.
