(Nor does he have fewer SNW, if indeed you were looking at that number for some reason)
Second, save percentages are not available for Sawchuk's first two tremendous regular seasons, which would make his numbers even higher.
Third, Sawchuk had five tremendous regular seasons (three of which are included in his SNW% calculations), after which he wasn't particularly compelling. His fiveyear peak was tremendous, however.
The remainder of your post seems to hinge on me comparing Sawchuk to Osgood, so I'll come back when you've posted a revised version.
