Either some of you aren't old enough to remember the pre lockout Devils (especially) and what they did to hockey. While no doubt their fans enjoyed the winning, it was dreadful to watch. Not only did Brodeur not face many shots on many nights, he saw very little quality shots.

To be clear, he isn't mediocre or anything even close. But if the team he played for doesn't affect your admiration of the numbers, then we'll have to agree to disagree.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
