Despite the sarcasm, youíre actually right. It might just mean youíre the starting goalie on the stingiest team in the league in the lowest-scoring era. The people who saw him play and cast ballots didnít seem to think he was any better than the 5th best goalie of that generation.

I mean, come on, he wasnít even that dominant from a GAA standpoint. He was 1st once (when the NHL was a half-league), 2nd three times, and never 3rd, when the league had 4-10 teams.
