I'm surprised that a Patrick Roy fan would blend regular season numbers with playoff numbers, given that literally his only firm ground in comparisons with Hasek, for example, is his playoff numbers

than the regular season in most regards.
But most crucially, statistics from a 30 team pool should not be treated the same as statistics from the top 16 teams selected from that 30. PPG scoring in the regular season (against every opponent from best to worst) is NOT equal to PPG scoring in the playoffs (against the top 16 teams), imo.
I'm actually surprised a Hasek hugger would argue that the playoffs are more important given his idol's propensity for getting outplayed there.
