Clint Benedict only played 14 games in the forward pass era. Look at the bump in his GAA compared to his pre forward pass era GAA. Flat Walsh, a 32 year old journeyman, outperformed Benedict:

Too early for either of the pre forward pass era goalies.
Aren't you punishing them for something that is 100% out of their control?
