In a perfect world we would have people from all thirty teams measuring scoring chances under very strict and thorough guidelines with timestamps. If we had that quality of data, I believe we could have the first "advanced" goalie stat on our hands.
GameCenter could be the solution to this. Get a group of fans together to go through every game from this season and record the scoring chances and the goaltender in net for said chance.
It may improve the original stats by allowing you to a) strictly define 'scoring chance,' b) avoid missing data sets, c) devise a way to further eliminate homerism either through participant selection criteria or some other mechanism
