First, If something is 100% team based then it
wouldn't matter what goalie you put behind a team. If that were true,
(with a grand total of 0 minutes of ice hockey goalie experience) could suit up and pull the same stats as Lundqvist. I think we can both agree how absurd that is.
Second, if you can't use SV%, GAA and Wins to compare goalies, which metrics do you suppose should be used?
