It might be a wash, but I think Thompson had even better team support than Hainsworth (for their careers as a whole). As TDDM said, it doesn't really matter the Top-4, but it certainly does for the Top-8.
Smith ahead of Fuhr. Hard to penalize Smith for, basically, playing under only one head coach (early coaches are irrelevant here).
Can't agree with Smith over Fuhr. Both split as a tandem, but Melanson posted notably better numbers when compared to Smith while Fuhr poted equal or better numbers when compared to Moog. Based on this consideration, it's hard to even rank either over Chris Osgood, who significantly outplayed a better backup in Mike Vernon when both were with Detroit.
