You're also assuming that a season's worth of data is a meaningful unit for evaluating goaltender performance, in the "global" sense, which is not necessarily the case.
See your post #18 in this thread. the global sv% may remain fixed at 55B:45A or about but the "sub" sv%s that are the component strings of As and Bs may vary widely. Example globally sv% .920 < sv% < .925 but the component SV%s by zone, net, offensive style etc may vary greatly.

A season is just a starting reference point that is a base for a game, games, opponents, career. View it as the first bite of many.
