Put them into today's game and they'd be starters for sure and very good ones at that, but they wouldn't even come close to defining the decade the way Smith and Fuhr define goaltending in the 80's.
We're talking about a decade where goalies would be seen literally jumping over shots. It was like watching cartoons. You can make whatever excuse you want. Goaltending in the 80's in general was comically bad.
I still waiting on how you come up with the Smith Career .882 save percentage B.S you spewing on about in this thread.If your going to use Stats to defend your opinion at least try to be a little acurate on the Stats you bring up instead of using untrue stats just to defend your position.
