Mike Wisniewski from Comcast Sportsnet compares two of the
best goalie seasons from Bernie Parent and Marty Brodeur:
Flyers fans have long known the phrase, “Only the Lord saves more than Bernie Parent,” but how does Parent’s best year — statistically — stack up among the all-time goaltender seasons? NHL.com ranks Bernie Parent’s 1973-74 season — the first year the Flyers won the Cup — as surpassed only by Martin Brodeur’s 2006-07 campaign. Remember, this is based purely on regular season numbers.
That year, the first of Parent’s second stint with the Flyers, No. 1 led the league in games played (73), wins (47), goals-against average (1.89) and shutouts (12). The closest in each category was the Blackhawks’ Tony Esposito, with 70, 34, 2.04 and 10. Parent easily won the Vezina Trophy, awarded to the league’s best goaltender.
“Save percentage was not a statistic during his days, but his stingy GAA provides more than enough evidence of his sheer dominance,” the article states. “Parent’s wins mark has since been passed by Brodeur, but his earth-shattering numbers that season were unprecedented at that stage of the expansion era.”
Thirty-three years later, Brodeur put up 48 wins, a 2.18 GAA and 12 shutouts in 78 games. He didn’t even lead the league in GAA — he was third behind Minnesota’s Niklas Backstrom (1.97) and Detroit’s Dominik Hasek (2.05). In fact, 19 goalies finished with a GAA under 2.70 that season. In Parent’s year? Two.
And yes, Brodeur set a new win total record in his 2006-07 year, which the article claims was the only season better than Parent’s. But Brodeur played under different rules — by that year, ties were eliminated and shootouts were instituted. The Devils goalie earned an additional nine wins as a result of shootout victories.
Had he played in the 1970s, and factoring in his four shootout losses, Brodeur’s 48-23-7 record would have stood at 39-19-20.
It’s also worth noting that an average of 6.4 goals per game were scored during the 1973-74 season, while just 5.8 were recorded during 2006-07.
Brodeur may have scored a few extra fantasy points in 2006-07 — or he might not have, had he played under the same rules.
Who do YOU think had the best goaltending season of all time?
It has been released that Rob Zombie will be making a film about the original Broad Street Bullies during our run for the Stanley Cup. I look forward to my involvement in the film!
Rob Zombie, a well-known horror movie writer and director for productions like Halloween, House of 1,000 Corpses, and more, is working in conjunction with the entire Flyers’ organization to create the film. He has our support and I cannot wait to see how he tells the story. Stay tuned for updates!
We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is calledOpportunityand its first chapter is New Year’s Day.
I want to thank the Flyers organization and every one of my teammates that played in yesterdays Winter Classic Alumni Game.
But most of all The FANS of Philadelphia! The Welcome you gave me was overwhelming, and touch my heart. I will cherish the time we spent yesterday together for the rest of my life.
Happy New Year!
