You are probably right. But, competition at the goal position probably had a lot to do with that.
And I'm the biggest Espo supporter here.
Actually, surprisingly, I'm not, at least a few had him higher than I did!
I probably ranked Esposito and Belfour too high on my original list.
But Belfour had a big advantage over Esposito in that he played for Keenan, Sutter and especially Hitchcock. Defensive coaches that were big on disipline. Belfour was also outplayed by his own backups in a number of season, mainly Jeff Hackett and Marty Turco.
