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.
Problem with your analysis.
1. Raycroft was so bad in the games he played that the Leafs' GAA average is inflated. All your first comparison show is how bad Raycroft was.
2. You insinuate that the Flyers good PK and the Leafs bad PK has nothing to do with goaltending and everything to do with the 4 skaters in front of the goalie. Toskala faced 26 more shots on the PK in 4 more games then Biron. Not a huge difference in shots. The difference was Biron only let in 43 PP goals. Toskala let in 55.
