Giguere: 0.910 (vs NJ)
Roy: 0.898 (vs VAN)

I don't see how Thomas' playoffs can be considered to be remarkably up-and-down (besides, what you're essentially doing is reducing an already small sample size to something even smaller). Quick is really a massive anomaly with regards to how stable his save percentage was between series.

This just seems like grasping at straws.
I mentioned the goals he gave up, the quality and timing of them, you responded with save percentages for other goalies. Doesn't add up, they have nothing to do with each other, with all due respect.

Career perception of him being clutch or a "playoff goalie". He's not. Non-NHL playoffs, NHL playoffs, international competition, he cannot be trusted. A peak here, a peak there, just more of the same for a wishy-washy career. Even the very playoffs that we cling to with him was laced with inconsistency throughout, nearly ending the whole "cute story" thing dead in its tracks in the first round.
