Yeah, I know what save percentage is.

What I'm saying is this:

You brought in the stat of Anisimov's 31 ES GA vs. Boyle's 38. I'm saying that number is influenced by luck, and used their OnIceSV% to try to show that. OnIceSV% has been shown to largely regress to the mean in the long run. Meaning any large differences are due mainly to luck.

If the luck were eliminated, they would have virtually the same ES GA. And with Boyle starting nearly 3/4 of his shifts in the defensive zone.
