And how many games a season did Patrick Roy play? His career high was 68 games. Marty has played in at least 70 games a season 12 times in his career. Kinda easy to pad stats when you play many more friggin games.
Oh please...he gets no credit for being durable enough to play 70+ games a year? And how many Vezinas has he won since Hasek, three, four? Along with three Cups, one (well really two) gold medals I'd say that's more than enough proof of his excellence.
His low GAA was easy to get when you have 2-1, 1-1, and 1-0 games druing the late 90's.
And how about his still-low GAA and save percentage the last five years with declining defenses? I'm sorry, no defense with Colin White and Mike Mottau as your top pairing can be considered elite. There's no way the Devils three years ago should have even made the playoffs and they wound up with home-ice in the first round. Where Marty's overplaying has hurt has been in April since the lockout but before the lockout he could play 70+ and go through a playoff run just fine.
