I'd love to see that analysis (particularly if the results are distinct and truly not the result of statistical variation at smaller sample sizes).

Intuitively, I agree - there are likely goalies who do better with high workloads (I'd guess Craig Anderson would fall into that category), and there are likely goalies who do better with low workloads (Ken Dryden seems to be the archetype here).

However, I've tried to tease out this in the data on multiple occasions now, and I've never been able to show anything that couldn't be explained by sample size.
