Look at the stats...

Quick GAA : 2.69 Save% .891 Quick is ranked 62 of 79 goalies in the league at save percent. His GAA is a comfortable 40th.
Bernier GAA : 1.94 Save% .916 Bernier is ranked 27th in save percent and 9th in GAA.

Oh and Bernier's 2nd loss is a lost stat. That game he let in 1 goal, which was a 2 on 0 break vs the sharks. He gave the team a chance to come back and make a game of it. If Bernier started that game, we would have won. Quick was just Horrible. That was Quicks loss if you ask anyone. So the WINNING % talk is WORTHLESS in the real world. This is NOT baseball.
Yet our coach calls both those numbers team stats.

On the team needing to raise its save percentage:
“We do. It’s a stat that tells the truth. That’s one stat that doesn’t lie, right? Lehtonen tonight was at about a .940 or so. That’s a stat that always holds true…Goals against, save percentage – it’s a big thing. They’re both team stats.”
