The next year, he posts a 0.926 and takes them to the finals.

They were getting elite-level goaltending from him in the playoffs those 2 years - there's a reason he was getting Conn Smythe consideration in both of those playoff years.
No, that's exactly my point. His numbers were a product of what you point out. Does that make him special or 'elite'?
