We looked at a number of different ratings schemes and this is the one that we felt ranked the goalies in production most consistently. We also used third-party scouting reports to help tailor the isicidual oalie raings to reflect individual goalies' stregths and weaknesses. We still have to run test seasons based on the ratings before we know how effective they are in practice.

I am not questioning about Nobokov or Rask but just trying to understand the logic on how this was put together. If we are going to penalize a player because he set out than we should penalize a player who has missed a chunk of games due to injuries. I still don't understand why Elliot rating is 85 rated when he only played 38 games last season and before that he was below average goalie as indicated on my postings.
