ya i dont really get that digirlamo is first team and only played like half of the games.

DiGirolamo and Ryan Rondeau were one-two in goals against average for a good share of the season. Both are players who could be a #1 on most any team. That's is why they nearly split the games down the middle. Yeah, I'd stay anonymous too if I couldn't figure that one out.

OK they were one-two in GAA. Whoopty. Now you look at Kuhn, Lundin, Keserich, or Dalton. Their GAA wasn't much higher than that of DiGirolamo or Rondeau, played in 15-20 more games,with Kuhn, Lundin, and Dalton having much better save percentages. Then Kuhn and Dalton made almost double the saves that DiGirolamo made. That's why I couldn't figure it out jerk-off. Oh by the way, didn't you post under anonymous to? I will gladly tell you who I am if you really want to know.

No, it doesnt hurt at all. But Kangas and Murray didn't win it last year.
