Yep - I posted his 1995 totals above, but here are all three for comparison (all from ):

(SD = standard deviations better than an "average" goaltender, GD = goals prevented beyond an "average" goaltender, GAR = goals prevented beyond a "replacement-level" goaltender):

1995: 3.1 SD, 21.4 GD, 28.9 GAR
2000: 0.9 SD, 3.0 GD, 5.2 GAR
2003: 1.6 SD, 11.0 GD, 20.4 GAR

I'll throw in one more for good measure:

1994: 2.2 SD, 15.4 GD, 24.0 GAR

Overall, I've got him (career postseason) at 39 GD and 119.2 GAR. I prefer the goals above replacement metric, since a 0 GD suggests no value, but that's an average goaltender, and there's plenty of value in being an average NHL goaltender.
