All I proclaimed was that its easy to score goals and diminish a goalies stats when the opponents are given a lot of High Quality Shots (HQS)
And that so far, AV and the Rangers have allowed plenty of those. The worst part so far is that they lose most games due to a high difference in quality shots.
Same applies when Fluery is being made fun or Byrs in the playoffs... why do they suck then or suck consistently. The team in front of them is allowing high quality of shots. A goalie is bound to let one in on that
I'd rewatch those Pittsburgh series. Fleury was not letting in "high quality shots," unless those include weak wristers from the wall and shots from below the icing line in the corner. His playoff reputation is well, well earned.
