I firmly believe save percentages are overinflated today because of bigger pads. That's not to say the goalies who wear big pads have no talent, but nobody even in the 90s before this started getting out of control had 930s for the season, and 920 career. That's not to say Luongo, and Lundqvist are not good either.

There is a direct correlation with goaltenders Roy, and POS Sean Burke for example. If you look at the years they posted their biggest save percentages it's when they were wearing bigger equipment. Burke would have never posted a 920 in 1988, or even 1994 for that matter like he did in 01, and 00, and he didn't. That's also not to say Roy was not good wearing smaller equipment. He definitely still was. Burke maybe a couple good seasons.
