Their average save percentage on other teams was just .885.
My ranking of how much each goalie benefited from their defence would probably go something like:
You are blending three distinct systems that the Canadiens featured during Ken Dryden's tenure during the 1970's.
Pre Scotty Bowman anchored by Jean Beliveau and Henri Richard at center.
Early Scotty Bowman, anchored by Henri Richard and Jacques Lemaire at center.
Late Scotty Bowman, anchored around Jacques Lemaire at center and Bob Gainey at LW.
As for the SV% averaged on other teams how many systems are involved and what was the SV% of the respective goalie teammates?
