I was never saying the goaltending was great, only, all things considered it wasn't a calamity, like you've been asserting. You threw out a bunch of ok goalies that would have been an upgrade, but would not advance the ball very far, and that assumes you can recreate the world on a spreadsheet. That is not a sign that Lou badly mishandled the goaltending, which is your assertion that started this.

I mean - you're just deluded. The Devils have a team SV% of .906, .911, and .894 over the last 3 years. Since the .894 was in a half year, that probably comes to an average of around .906. That's close to the worst mark in the NHL over that time. Just about anything would've advanced the ball.
Of goalies who played 20 games - and I'm being generous to you here because of survivorship bias - Brodeur ranks 54th and Hedberg 50th in SV% out of 74 goalies over the last 3 years. There are 2 goalies who played 100 games over the last 3 years and had a worse SV% than Brodeur. Now scorer bias blah blah, indeed, but it's still bad.
