The Separation Begins

from the Edmonton Sun,
Now, the goalies pads aren't bloated, their goals against averages are. While Miller, Miikka Kiprusoff, Dominik Hasek, Manny Fernandez and Martin Brodeur (after some terrible struggles early on), are still on top of their games, other former greats, like Jose Theodore, Nikolai Khabibulin and Ed Belfour are doing David Duval impressions. Clearly, as slimmed-down netminders see more and more rubber from more and better angles, we're seeing a separation between the real deals, the great goalies, and the good goalies who were made great by the old system.
