I would be willing to bet that professionals in the NHL wouldn't come to an agreement on it either.

I hate when people compare stats of goalies that don't play anywhere near the same amount of time. Comparing goalies that play majority of the games to ones that play half or less is pointless. Whose to say they would keep up that pace if they had to play night in and night out like Price, Lundqvist, Rinne, Miller, etc. But change the list filter by games played, you'll see that there isn't a lot of separation amongst most of those goalies. Just be glad we have one that you can rely on.
Yep Budaj... 15 points out of 18

I'm glad we have a backup goalie that we can 100% rely on
