I hear a lot of people say how good Curtis Joseph was when he played for the Blues. Even my mom knows who CuJo is so that's saying something. I was really young when he wore the note so I didn't really get to experience it. I did go to one game he played in though. However his performance was over shadowed by a Hull hat-trick. When you're 8 years old and Hull scores 3 times that's really all you go away remembering.
Basically what I wanted to do here is get some insight on CuJo.
I was looking at some stats and for a guy like me they don't look too impressive. I know stats can lie sometimes though. For fun I compared Halak's first season as a Blue with what I thought was statistically speaking Joseph's best with the Blues. Here's what I got.
Joseph 1993-1994 GP-71 SO-1 GAA-3.10 PCT-.911 W-36
Halak 2010-2011 GP-57 SO-7 GAA-2.48 PCT-.910 W-27
So clearly Joseph played more games I know that can make a big difference, but Halak had a lower GAA and six more shutouts.
I just thought this would be fun to discuss. Sorry if I sound like a stupid dumbass.
