Saku Koivu is the Worst Goalie of all Time...

Browsing ESPN today for free agency signings, I decided to read the details of the Saku Koivu signing with the Ducks when I noticed that, according to ESPN, he had a terrible record as a goalie? Amazingly, he started in 64 games but only won 16 of them. The stat that stood out the most was that he only gave up 44 goals in 65 games, yet only had a save% of 4. That means that he rarely ever faced a shot in a game and when he did, it would go in. I guess he only stopped one or two shots all year? In case you didn't know, the 16 wins are actually his 16 goals. Losses=Assists, Ties=Points, SV% = +/- and his 44GAA are really his 44 penalty minutes.The point of all this is Saku Koivu is actually a FORWARD, a very good one, and the article has been up for a couple of days now, which means that ESPN has had this unbelievable error posted on their website for well over 24 hours and have not fixed it. Oops.
