I see your point, but it's not quite the same. You know Price is going to face somewhere around 2000 shots next season, and save percentage isn't really affected by games played, time on ice or linemates. I have no clue if Perry will have anywhere close to the same number of quality scoring chances as he did last year, there are far too many factors at play.

Aside from that, Perry scored 50 and was a good 10% better than 2nd place Stamkos at 45. Price was actually tied for 8th in the league in save percentage for everyone who played 25+ games, not exactly mind blowing. I find it difficult to believe that Thomas will repeat his .938 from last season since that's shockingly high and no one has come close in recent years. A .923 from Price isn't that crazy to expect again next season.

Just like every other team in the league.
