How in the hell could a tendency to allow rebounds have an inflationary effect on save percentage?
The conjecture is that Hasek played a unique style where he left the puck in front of him while giving the shooter literally zero angle to get it on net, whereas a more traditional goalie would have just covered the puck. The overall chance of an average rebound shot resulting in a goal wouldn't be relevant to this particular situation. I think TCG showed via the average SOG between Hasek and his backups that if this had an inflationary effect on Hasek's save percentage, it was probably minimal.
