More and more, it's looking very wise to throw out the results of last season. It was such a strange campaign, shortened by a lockout and then crammed together by the calendar. It's especially true for goaltenders.

With the goalie jobs in Europe limited and training camp over in a blink, the usual routines were disrupted. It took time for guys to get their timing, it took time for others to get into ideal shape.
