You are contradicting yourself here and admitting my point at the same time. The 2010 Flyers defense >>>>> 2013 Flyers defense. It isn't close. That is why a goalie like Michael Leighton can put up 2.48 / .920 in 2010 and a goalie like Ilya Bryzgalov is putting up a 2.82 / .899 this season.

In you opinion, how did Michael Leighton backstop a team to game 6 of the Finals? Do you think Bryzgalov would do better, the same, or worse behind that team?

It's hard to compare the two because the contracts/expectations.
So why is it so hard to say that the defense can make a goalie look alot worse than he actually is, contracts notwithstanding?

Saying "Bryz sucks" is different than saying "Bryz is overpaid".
