I've got a couple of concerns here. First, why would we give a bonus for W/L record to the Bruins goalie of the Orr era? If a winning record while facing better competition is the criteria, how high are you going to promote Fuhr? Secondly, if we look at SV% in SC finals and deciding games, what kind of sample sizes will we be comparing, one to the other? Hasn't the strength of team leading to goalie opportunities thing just been touched on with Smith, and how will the raw numbers suggest one "pales" vs the other, in and of themselves? That sounds like a shortcut around a lot of context.
