And Belfour's Vezina votes and 2nd Team All-Star selection in 1995 are a little suspect.
15th in Save Percentage
3rd in GP
2nd in Wins
1st in SOs
After Hasek, there were really no good candidates for voting in 1995. Thibault and Osgood placed 2nd/3rd in save percentage, but played less than 20 of the 48 games. Moog and Vanbiesbrouck were 4th/5th, but both had losing records. Roussel was 6th, but played fewer than 20 games. Carey was 7th, but only played 28 games (and was tied with Belfour in Vezina voting). Burke was 8th, but had a losing record.
Count me among the people who don't believe in the value of voting shares.
