In 1998-99 when Hasek had a SV% of .937 over the course of 64 games, the leaguewide average SV% was .908.
In 2010-11 when Thomas had a SV% of .938 over the course of 54 games, the leaguewide average SV% was .916.
And 1998-99 arguably wasn't even Hasek's best season. The year before he lead the league in GP with 72 and lead the league in SV% by .010. Hasek was consistently lapping the competition, and that competition included goalies like Roy, Brodeur and Belfour.
