I don't have a strong opinion either way but I think it gets to the op's point that he seems to be arguing that Roy benefited from playing on some great teams as much as those teams benefited from having him in net.
I would say for 2001 definitely not. Patrick Roy was amazing against a stacked devils team (held them to almost half their usual scoring clip IIRC).

For 1996 I'd say it's plausible, depending on how hot/cold Belfour is. If he can win against the Wings in the WCF then yes. Joe Sakic was also on fire that playoffs.
