It's not a perfect measure but there's a very positive correlation between goalies collect a lot of wins and goalies who are considered "good". So such a claim is about as far from stupidity as one could get. If you want to say that Fleury is the exception to the rule, then okay but let's keep bad logic out of the conversation.
