The skill ratings of MacDonald are higher than Budaj or Bobrovsky, but if the ratings work the way they are supposed Bobrovsky and Budaj should still be able to handle more starts due to a higher EN rating.

Hello Ville,
So how do you justify 85 rating for Elliot and 77 Ratings for Nobokov and Rask. Take a look at the stats for the three goalies below and it is clear to me that both my goalie had better stats than Elliot 2 year average:
Brian Elliot
1011 55GP 3.34GA .893SV% 3 SO
1112 38GP 1.56GA .940SV% 9 SO
93GP 2.64GA .912SV% .129 SO per game
Tuuka Rask
1011 23GP 2.05GA .929SV% 3 SO
1112 29GP 2.67GA .918SV% 2 SO
52 GP 2.39GA .923SV% .096 SO per Game
Evgeny Nobokov
1011 71GP 2.43 0.922 3 SO
1112 42GP 2.55 0.914 2 SO
113GP 2.47GA .919SV% .044 SO per Game
