Rinne was good the first period and a half against Toronto, then gave up four goals on seventeen shots down the stretch .... one directly resulting from him misplaying the puck. Maybe one year people will be honest and say a star had a game where they just sucked ... this doesn't seem to be it.
Why don't you just accept that people have favorites and goats. It is part of all sports. If you think that dragging out stats is just going to change people's minds it isn't. People love Rinne. They will give him more leeway because of that. Hutton is a stranger. Hendricks is a stranger. You are going to be more skeptical of them because you don't know them. If Hutton plays lights out in the next few weeks people will change their minds.
