Oh, totally. You're not wrong. But what are we trying to say from all of that? I still contend that there may be only a handful of other goalies that one might have "preferred" to have had between the pipes (especially given the numbers, more so than the reputations), whether it's that 4 year window, or the decade as a whole. That suggests the upper limit of "mediocre", at worst, imo.

Understood as to how or why it can be a poor argument, but considering the guys in question, and their relative workloads, is it necessarily that poor in their cases? I don't necessarily think so.
