Both skaters and goalies are based on the last 164 games (or last two full seasons). Goalies were ranked based on a formula with multiple variables, and those variables and rankings were closely vetted. Ville can doubtless speak to it in detail, but shouldn't have to - the relative rankings are pretty consistently fair based on the players' actual performances. I suggest you ignore the names, and just look at the three goalies' numbers over the last couple of seasons.

EDIT: I should add that I'm not exactly thrilled with Travis Zajac's rating myself, but in going over the newest for the past couple of seasons, they're hard to argue with. Conversely, I'm generally pleased with the ratings for Columbus' blueline, (all pending testing, of course!), so I can't complain. I suspect that will be the case for all teams: a few guys they thought would rate out higher, a few guys lower. It should balance out. What matters now is how you manage your team based on the ratings you've got, to make the most of your strengths and minimize your weaknesses.
