If he could've avoided injuries, he could've been a top 10 goalie in this league during his prime.

Injuries aside he would never have been a top ten goalie. His propensity to overplay the puck and turn it over would have always prevented it. At his best he was able to overcome deficiencies in his fundamentals with good reflexes but that is not a recipe for long term success as keeper in the NHL.
