Stats don't tell you everything, but they do tell you a lot.
You cut out the part on my 'terrible' analogy. I guess you realized you were wrong and took it out.

GAA, SV% are a goaltending/defence stat too me. The Kings give up a lot of shots per game, that's why a crappy goalie like Labarbera has a good SV%. OR how Biron has an inflated one with the Flyers. Both teams (Kings and Flyers) give up 32 a game (bottom 4).

The Leafs' GAA, 3.12, Toskala's GAA 2.74.. Diff of 0.38.
The Flyers' GAA, 2.77, Biron's GAA 2.59 .. Diff of 0.18.

Quality chances? Tor has the 2nd worst PK in the league by .1. The Flyer's are top 10.

All the top goalies in the league also play behind better D systems in terms of shots against and PK.
