True, look how many cups Chris Osgood has.

I just mean stats aren't always black and white. I'd bet Bryz has a better SV% and GAA than Richter did at some point, does that make Bryz the better goalie? Defense is better these days and scoring is down. I couldn't imagine a goalie in the 80s-90s having a .940 SV% and a 1.95 GAA as a starter. That'd be insane. Now if a goale had a .906 SV% people would laugh. That SV% won Jim Carey the vezina trophy in 1996.
