if your point is to call me out for saying that nobody thought Hainsworth was the best goalie, fine
you're right, but it definitely seems like a minority.
You can just look at the Vezina voting records from 2003-2008 when Brodeur won 4 of 5 Vezinas and was 2nd for the 5th.
Certainly a deeper pool than Hainsworth had, although the standouts haven't done enough in their careers yet to be ranked yet.
Please, I'm not "calling you out".
There's a big difference between "some people" (as you stated) and the 10 GMs (which you didn't mention).
Clearly the GMs of the 2000s valued the goalies that put up wins. The GMs of the 30s seemed to base their voting on what goalie did the most. I'd suspect the GMs of the 30s would not have voted Brodeur 4 Vezinas, if any. And the Gms of the 2000s would have award Thompson a number of 1st team all-stars.
