But is a 45-30 record something that is so gaudy that we have to even bring it up? He has a .600 winning percentage in the shootout. That's above average, but we aren't talking about an above average goalie here. These are numbers you come to expect from a star goalie. It doesn't add much for me at all. A win is a win.
