Taco MacArthur's site has all the raw data, but here's hopefully a fairly quick and easy way to be able to gauge how Smith ranked in terms of save percentage relative to his teammates, the other top goalies and the rest of the league. Here are the top 5 in save percentage for each season Smith played significant games. I used Hockey Reference's rate cutoffs (basically min. 25 GP for an 80 game season), and added in Smith and his playing partner if they weren't in the top 5, along with league average.
