It's not just shots prevented; it's shots for - with no prohibition on two-line passes, Brodeur's outlet passes definitely lead to offense. Brodeur looks like a better outlet passer than most of the defensemen on the team, but that's as much an indictment of the current crop of Devils defensemen as anything else.
A goalie corsi would sure be interesting. Especially since the shots Brodeur prevents never show up in stats the way people's eyes think they should.

I don't know if that warrants a top 60s spot.
I agree, it doesn't. If we're talking modern guys I'd have him somewhere between around McLean. After Burke and khabibulin. Ahead of potvin, puppa, and Theodore.

Also, I agree, he was about 4th to 12th for about ten years. Pretty solid.
