This is one of the few goaltender C.S. awards that I really disagree with, and for exactly the reason you mention.
Although one could make the argument that if you suck that bad that you have to be pulled, you're more valuable on the bench. I'd listen to that. :p
I think a bigger problem with the award is that the PHWA are the only people who vote on it, and that votes have to be in 10 minutes before the end of a game. I saw one of the TSN guys comment that he had no vote, and frankly I think TSN interns know more about the game than half of the PHWA. Plus, it's 2013. You're telling me they can't make a phone app for voting, and insta-tally it in the 10 minutes from the end of the game until awards are presented?
