If you remove all the "filler", Fuhr is 8th overall for a
4 year stretch
, and only 0.010 behind the "best" in SV%, like I said. I don't see how that's even as low as "mediocre", and he seems to get even less credit for his performance during that time than
, which is more to my point.
Heck, in the entire decade of the 80s, only 5 goalies played more than 400 games, and Fuhr's SV% is #3 among them (Lemelin, Liut). he has to get credit on some level for being a workhorse (you just pumped Esposito's tires in this regard), and maintaining a high degree of consistency (0.884 SV% between '83/84 and '87/88, and still 0.881 for the decade on the whole).
