Last season stat guys were being mocked for saying TOR and MIN were going to collapse and LAK was going to rise... that was based on Fenwick...

But again it's more of a "less bad" than "better" evaluation with current sample size. You can think of it like +/- but based on "chances" rather than goals, and slightly approximates puck possession time.

Besides, if you ignore your game Brodeur posted a 0.958 sv% and we all know he isn't still that good.
