was 8 games below a .500 W/L % which happens to be the league average for the playoffs so Esposito actually failed to outperform the league average.

Toss-up between the two for the worst.
Wasn't the league average GAA different for each of these guys since their playoff careers only partially overlap? I don't see the raw numbers being very helpful without the league scoring levels included to give context...Shouldn't we all know this by now???
