When it comes to -- accurancy -- I wonder if saving percentage isn't the most dangerous stat.

I just think the team infront of a goalie has much bigger impact -- without exception -- than most realize.

It for example seem like every year a goalie is mentioned as one of the top 3 goalies in the game/world, due to a stat that I just don't think has that meaning or impact. A stat is a stat, and will always be just that. But I don't think people reacts to other stats to the same extent.

But every year there is a goalie or two who comes into Vezina discussions, and even wins it, because playing behind a thight team, playing a ton of low scoring thight games etc.
