That "noise" is simply context.

Either way, like I said earlier, we're simply not going to agree on this. I'm aware I have a minority opinion on these things. I don't really look at goalies as individuals performing in a vacuum. Even save percentage is tied to shot quality, which is affected hugely by the team in front of you. All goalie stats are relative to the team in front of them, so I choose to look at one more than others.
