I don't know about Fuhr being a top 10 guy either but your absolutely right on that one.I remember watching many Oiler playoff games where Fuhr made lights out saves at the right time and when his team needed it most,the score was still 10-7 Oilers but if Fuhr hadn't baled them out it would have been 12-10 for the other guys.The Oilers,while an offensive juggernaut,were not exactly the 95' NJ Devils,they gave up a lot of "primo" shots.
Exactly. Did anyone ever care if he let in 4 goals when his team scored 7 and controlled almost the entire game? Nope. But when it counted in high pressure situations, he always came up large.
Thats how i see it as well. I dont give a rats patutty if his save % isnt that high. He made huge saves when they mattered most with no thought of the 5 guys on the ice playing defense. Id love to see guys like Marty and Roy to see how they would do in that position. Im sure they would dominate but Fuhr may have had the hardest task of all the goalies mentioned. Loved watching him play.
