From my site:
Since Froese only had one (or two) losses in the entire season, this one was pretty easy to find with a bit of microfilm.
Alot of early NHL goalie stats were redone when actual minutes played became part of the stat landscape. Playoffs GAA used to be done on a GP basis which did not factor in overtime.
Likewise PIM and GP numbers should be viewed as iffy prior to the 1939-40 season.
Most of the changes were introduced during Ron Andrews tenure. Long, hard process.
BTW Ron Andrews deserves HHOF consideration as a builder.
