Save percentage is definitely the best stat we have available for judging a goalie, but it's not the only stat. The stat can be skewed a fair bit if you have a bad game. Lundqvist got a terrible start and is now playing catchup. No doubt he's been ridiculous for the last month but they were in a huge hole to begin with.

Lundqvist was not good to start the season:
I still don't understand your argument.

Lundqvist has 17 wins out of the Rangers 19

Price has 19 wins out of the Habs 25

Not only is there a difference of only two wins, Lundqvist has a higher percentage of wins for his club. Why would you take .926 over .933? Just because?

Your main criteria for choosing Price is that he is a Hab. Lundqvist has had an objectively better season based on whichever method is applied, the second more favourable to Price I might add.
