If a goalie wins like 3-0, wouldn't this then make their strength of schedule easier than it was before the game?
And also, doesn't this just compare the goalie to their opponent's goalie instead of comparing them to the forwards?
For example, the goalies in the Atlantic Division last year were Lundqvist, Brodeur, Bryzgalov, Fleury, and Montoya. The Pacific Division had Quick, Hiller, Niemi, Smith, and Lehtonen. Using this formula, Lundqvist had an easier schedule than Quick, even though the top scorer in the Pacific was Thornton with 77, while Malkin lead the Atlantic with 109. Six out of the top 10 point scorers were in the Atlantic while 0 were in the Pacific. I don't get how Quick's schedule could have possibly been harder than Lundqvist's.
You're a goalie, right? If you had to choose, which division would you rather play in?
