The points you make about SV% being unreliable are entirely fair, and I have made them a lot myself. That, however, doesn't come close to making GAA a better indicator of goaltending quality. It is a rather pure team stat, and that's hardly debatable. SV% has severe issues as an indicator and really should not be relied upon - but GAA simply isn't one, at all. Most of all, the points you make against SV% can and do still show up in GAA. Those more difficult shots are still faced by the goaltender on the inferior team, and do translate to a worse GAA, just as much as they lower the SV%.
