Of goalies who have played at least 10 games, only Thomas, Backstrom and Lundqvist meet your .930 SV% - and they won't keep that up. I agree that Price will have to be outstanding for the Habs to win the cup, but how about lowering the bar to .920 (Luongo/Brodeur's SV% in their great seasons) for the regular season?

IMO, GAA is more of a team stat than a measure of a goalie's contribution.
