That's irrelevant to the point.
Hockey Prospectus just announced that they're going to have weekly of GVT on their website. GVT is essentially equal to VORP in baseball:
Ilya Bryzgalov had a GVT of -5.8, which is 5th worst in the league (Brodeur, Cam Ward, Roloson, Mason behind behind. Mason is -13.0, which is basically means he hasn't even been AHL caliber). That won't keep up, but it's too big of a hole to get back to a point to maybe even average.
Sergei Bobrovsky is +1.7, which is about where you'd like your backup goalie to be. For some perspective, last year Bobrovsky and Boucher were both in the 5's last year, while Michael Leighton was +1.5 two years ago.
This at Christmas, so it was before the Tampa Bay game.
