Compare this to last year, where Kulyomin was 74th in the league at 0.856 and Grabovski was 118th. They were 171/172 the year Kulyomin scored all of those goals.
This tells us two things:
Quality of competition matters - a lot. Good depth consequently
Kolya & Misha have the biggest defensive responsibility in the league, and at -3/-4 really appear to be succeeding strongly in the role.
Dion Phaneuf is 9th in the league.
These guys are matched hard against high quality competition. Their performance has to be measured from that basis.
This point doesn't get the credit it should i think because of the complexity of understanding these stats. good post though.
