Also, in reponse to the question on W/L records in quality starts, I did a blog post using stats to give a season review of the goalies. Not once in his ~20 starts was Enroth bailed out when he didnt post a quality start, Miller actually had a reasonably high bail out percentage. Record in quality starts, I cant remember but I think Miller was right around the league average in terms of points % in quality starts.
I also know a former NHL goalie coach that tracked the difficulty of the potential save on goals against.
I could see it not being worth the work. I was calling into question whether it was possible.
Grading chances and having a Save% attributed to the various chances is possible. It's just a lot more work than the generic stats that are used.
