I saw a picture of Marty and Luongo side-by-side recently (when they were in the Olympics) and they were the exact same height but you could notice the difference in the height of Luongo's pads compared to Marty's
Reminds me of this. The caption is priceless.

Then: 2.92 GAA and .896 SVP
Now: 2.46 GAA and .910 SVP
He's had a strong second half after a disaster start of the year.
Then: 1.43 GAA and .948 SVP
Now: 1.48 GAA and .943 SVP
Elliott has kept his historic pace and has shutouts in 26% of the games he's started this season.
Then: ? GAA and .923 SVP
Now: 2.35 GAA and .921 SVP
For some reason I didn't take down Theodore's GAA in December. I think it was somewhere in the 2.30s. Theodore has been solid for most of the season and has been great down the stretch. He's the biggest reason why the Panthers haven't faltered with the Capitals closing in on them. A season I don't think anyone expected from Theodore again.
Then: 2.81 GAA and ? SVP
Now: 2.53 GAA and .916 SVP
Vokoun has improved as the season has gone on, but still has to be one of the worst seasons of his career. His injury lately, though, has been a big loss for the Caps as Neuvirth has been awful.
Then: 2.00 GAA and .935 SVP
Now: 2.61 GAA and .911 SVP
Khabibulin was never going to keep those numbers that high. For a team as bad as the Oilers, I don't think those numbers are that awful.
Then: 1.86 GAA and .927 SVP
Now: 2.15 GAA and .923 SVP
An excellent comeback season for Giggy in a backup role. Big part of the reason why this Avs team is overachieving.
Then: 3.12 GAA and ? SVP
Now: 2.46 GAA and .919 SVP
Then: 2.62 GAA and .905 SVP
Now: 2.41 GAA and .920 SVP
A much better second half from Lou. Can't help how Schneider feels stuck in the backup role with a 2.04 GAA and a .934 SVP (5th and 2nd respectively in the league).
Then: 3.67 GAA and ? SVP
Now: 3.66 GAA and .886 SVP
Simply terrible all season. The Lightning paid a lot to get him and paid a huge price this season trusting him at 42 to continue his late-career resurgence.
Then: 3.29 GAA and .899 SVP
Now: 2.78 GAA and .914 SVP
Ward's a very good goalie in this league and like the Canes, he had a terrific second half of the season.
Then: 3.15 GAA and .898 SVP
Now: 2.54 GAA and .911 SVP
Similar second half to Ward. A terrible first half was offset by an excellent 2nd.
Then: 3.52 GAA and .880 SVP
Now: 3.43 GAA and .892 SVP
The good news for Mason? He wasn't the worst goalie in the NHL this season. The bad news? He was the 2nd worst. Looking more like a one-hit wonder every day. Wonder when the Jackets give up on him.
Then: 1.84 GAA and .943 SVP
Now: 2.39 GAA and .920 SVP
Boy did I give Thomas the kiss of death. His splits pre and post White House controversy are glaring though. Some blame it on old age, but he's been great over the last two weeks. Some people close to the team felt his body language looked totally different after he passed on visiting the White House.

I think Mason needs a change of scenery. He's talented, but it has to be next to impossible to learn anything in the mess of a situation. His confidence has to be at a serious low.
Shockingly, it's still sky high!
