I'm not sure why people discount Brodeur on save pct., the system that he played in just doesn't really allow for it...GMs saw through the stats and realized that he's a hugely impactful goaltender in the NHL...
And there's real value in being able to play at a high level for that long over the course of a season. Nabokov played 77 games that year. Every night he basically had to start...people that have been around the game on the ice (like, GMs for instance) realize how difficult that is today...
I'm not saying it weighs more than this, or it's worth as much as that...I'm just saying, that discounting that completely as "just games played...pssh..." is not how it's looked at inside the NHL...or even the levels below that...
