When GAA was brought up, Sabre fans would smarm and say that GAA was a team accomplishment while Save Percentage was more of an individual stat, and the # of shots that Dom inevitably faced was always more than Marty, in hopes of diminishing Marty's accomplishments. Devils fans would counter with the argument that it was tougher to stop shots when seeing less than 20 in a game because of long periods of inactivity, and many Sabre fans wouldn't buy it.

Now we are seeing the roles reversed a bit, in where Dom is on a puck possession team that yields fewer shots per game. Dom is proving right now that he is a strong goaltender, whether or not he is facing copious amounts of rubber or not (not that few doubted it).
