Perfect reason why scouts make decisions based on viewings of the players, not based on the stat line.
Comparing him directly to Jarry based on statistics alone is like arguing that Nick Petan's 1.73 point-per-game means he should be drafted ahead of Nathan MacKinnon and his 1.68 point-per-game. It's never apples to apples, especially across different leagues.
Also, you're incorrect. Fucale had a .901 save percentage entering into last night's game.
