Barrasso was very, very up and down in his career. Mostly down, after the 1993 debacle. The only uptick in his stats again, as I recall, was when we bought in drill instructor Kevin Constantine to make the team play some kind of defense...
The Pens probably make it to the Finals in 1996 with Wregget instead of Barrasso...and who knows what happens in '93 if there's a goalie change. But tough to yank him after being a big part of back-to-back Cups...who would have guessed that surrendering 20 goals in the last four games of a series would prove to be fatal anyway...it wasn't a matter of goal-support...the Pens scored 19 over that same stretch...
As of now, it's very close. Fleury will comfortably pull ahead soon enough though...it's not like Barrasso set the bar that high...
