Based on emotion, not empirical evidence.

The "better" goalie wouldn't go 0-5-1 across late Nov through Dec 28. The "better" goalie wouldn't have one win in six starts this month compared to three wins in six starts for the lesser goalie. The "better" goalie wouldn't have a worse record overall. The "better" goalie wouldn't get pulled more often than the lesser goalie.

Maz has the potential to grow into a career NHL'er. He isn't there yet. The same goes for Hellberg. Right now Maz is just as inconsistent as the goalie you claim he's "better" than with the advantage of youth to grow beyond Hutton at some point in the future.
