Joseph was always, always above average. Barrasso was sometimes bad. A rich man’s Vernon. I see Beezer in the Joseph category, too, except he had some poor playoffs before earning the hero title in 1996.
Barrasso was a very very rich man's Vernon, considering Barrasso was top 2 in Vezina voting 4 times.
I think there's an argument that if Barrasso retires after the 1992 Cup, his career is better than Cujo's. Then he wouldn't have as many "bad seasons" to drag him down. How many of Barrasso's bad seasons were before 1992?
