Assuming that Bobrovsky's numbers are going to jump to .915 or higher next year, and continue trending toward Bryzgalov's is a pretty dubious assumption.

It's possible, but it's more likely that his numbers next year stay around the same level, or even go downward slightly. He had a red-hot start to this year that undoubtedly helped set up good numbers overall. He surprised a lot of people and once teams scouted him better, came down to earth a bit. It's likely that next year, when the league knows him better, he'll have a hard time improving his numbers over this year. Just ask Steve Mason about sophomore slumps...and ask for whether or not he can get to Bryz' level, that's also iffy. Bryzgalov is really good.
