I don't know how to make fancy online graphs, but here are the number of goalies in the top 16 per year, based on their career span. This is by calendar year not season, since that's how the "career" column is listed.

up to 1909: none
1910-1911: 1
1912-1925: 2
1926: 1
1927-1931: 2
1932-1937: 1
1938-1944: 2
1944-1948: 3
1949-1950: 4
1951-1966: 3
1967: 4
1968-1969: 5
1970: 6
1971: 5
1972-1975: 4
1976-1984: 3
1985-1988: 2
1989-1990: 3
1991-2003: 4
2004-2008: 3
2009-2011: 2
2012: 1

Looks like a fair distribution to me. We are discounting pre-World War 2 goaltending it seems. Should we be? The peak around 1970 is just because of generational overlap between the O6 goalies and the 1970s goalies.
