No year-to-year correlation for [on-ice EV SV % minus off-ice EV SV %] among defencemen, for example.
I wouldn't think that it would come down to individual defensemen. Overall team defensive strategy for limiting shot quality would likely originate with the coach. I would imagine that some form of relative shot quality decrease has followed Dave Tippett and Ken Hitchcock into whatever team they coach. edit: also Jacques Lemaire!
