Bill Ranford went 16-6 in 1990, 12-19 otherwise.
Among skaters, you have Joe Nieuwendyk - 11-10-21 in 23 games in 1999. 55-40-95 in 137 games otherwise. Not to mention, his Smythe is controversial.
Pretty sure anyone who watched Hextall's Smythe run wouldn't think it was unwarranted. He was outstanding against the Oiler's dynasty team and pushed them to game 7 on a Flyers team that was missing their best scorer in Tim Kerr
