After that the math is pretty simple.
Not trying to criticize, I think the data is pretty cool. But I'm not sure where I was off base. From what I could tell, you used the average scoring chances per game, and adjusted each starters GAA toi yield the SCA Sv%. if that's the case, I think what I said was accurate.
Most of the teams Scoring chances data I've seen is game by game, so you could track down the starter for each game to refine it, but it's probably more effort than its worth. TBH, I think data for backups would be skewed simply because of the smaller sample size.
Anyhow, I enjoyed your work and completely off topic, found it funny that the tables auto-sort does not handle negative numbers well.
