The whole Fuhr thing is great with lots of fuzzy feelings but the fact is the Oilers were a team that could score over 400 goals in a season. There is literally no comparison to be made here. Fuhr let in lots of goals but the Oilers were always good enough to score even more. No a .900 goalie is not going to be better than a .925 goalie. At .900 you are talking about Steve Mason and Bryzgalov level bad.
