Not like those guys have been in the top 5 for that many years in a row.
Last year's top 5, Elliot, Schnider, Smith, Quick and Lundqvist. Where are they this year?
Lunqvist is 8th, Schnieder 25th, Elliot last, Smith 35th, Quick 37th.
Save % is a stat that doesn't tell the whole story.
I had to chuckle at times last season when people defending Dubnyk would trot out his save % relative to goalies like Lunongo and say "look, he's not even that far off."
Here's the question that should be asked regarding Dubnyk:
Would you be confident going into the playoffs with a guy like Dubnyk?
I'm not sure how the answer could be yes to this question based on what we have seen from him throughout his career.
