Right, that's why I say relative to their peers, which is the only fair comparison really. It might not be fair to them to say Hasek was the best to ever do it, since there may have been someone like Sawchuck or whoever that worked as hard and was as talented as Hasek, and outplayed his peers by a similar margin. But at the end of the day, Hasek was still better when you remove them from any context and compare them in the abstract. That was really what I was getting at, just trying to qualify my statement that he was the best ever.
