That's not particularly fair to Thomas' 2009, who was competing against a 4th Place Hart finisher. Calling Thomas' season a second-place finish is a little insulting when it would take a good argument to have many of the 2006-2012 Vezina performances ranked above him.

Boston, 2009
Thomas (.933)
Fernandez (.910) - Backup
League Average (.908)

2006: Kiprusoff (.923); LA (.901)
2007: Brodeur (.922); LA (.905)
2008: Brodeur (.920); LA (.909)
2009: Mason (.916); LA (.908) - Runner-Up
2010: Miller (.928); LA (.911)
2011: Thomas (.938); LA (.913)
2011: Rask (.918); LA (.913) - Backup
2012: Lundqvist (.930); LA (.914)
