I agree. Statistically every single facet of his game is below average. IF you allow some leeway for playing on a team with what is usually bad defense I can see how you might consider him mediocre/average tier. But I don't see how anyone can place him in the top 10 of goalies. I don't think he is that "painfully" overrated around the entire league, but among Carolina fans, yes definitely.
He's been able to build a reputation based on being hot in the playoffs in 06. People have trouble seeing past that. In addition, he makes his saves look more dramatic than they really are, so when he makes a good save it looks REALLY good, but then he gives up tons of soft ones.
