However, his analysis isn't really compelling, because how do you judge a dangerous opportunity? A guy taking a shot from a foot away with the goalie blocking out the entire net isn't really all that "dangerous" (unless he shoots it through the goalie's body), whereas a shot from the point through traffic can be extremely dangerous.

People have done stuff looking at "scoring chances", but that proves problematic as "scoring chances" are wildly subjective in how they are determined.
Then for you, what classifies a good goaltender from a bad one?
