Mirtle on All Time No Cups Team

Yesterday I posted my All Time Team without Stanley Cups. James Mirtle makes a couple comments on the topic here.

The number of players who play great careers but retire without any career Stanley Cup wins will climb rapidly in the future. More teams in the league mean a lesser percentage of players in any given season win the cup. It used to be that 1 in 6 players won the cup each year, now its 1 in 30.

Mirtle also comments that he thinks goalies lag behind forwards and defencemen. I'm not so sure this is true. I think that is mostly our perception. Goaltender stats are such that goalies on good teams tend to get better numbers (GAA, wins, shutouts) then goalies on bad teams, so we tend to underestimate good goalies on lesser teams. I would argue, that in 2003/04 Roberto Luongo was the best goalie in the NHL - but since he was unable to post the numbers Martin Brodeur did, Brodeur won the Vezina.
