I know it's somewhat off-topic but is there anything for goalies like the shooting charts they have in basketball. I think it would be really interesting to see a breakdown of where shots are taken. It wouldnt be that hard and I find it hard to believe teams don't use that kind of data themselves. It would be nice to have a dot on a map of the ice showing where a shot came from and it could be, say, a blue dot for a regular shot, a red dot for a rebound, and a blue dot with a line connecting to a green dot for a shot and a deflection. Most NHL calibre goalies are going to have a save percentage of .99% on shots from outside of the circles that are not defelected, it would be interesting to see how a particular goalie does within the faceoff dots or around the crease. I know there are shot charts but it doesnt really tell the whole story. Showing a shot, rebound, and deflection, would tell much more and save% breakdowns for each would be amazing.
Is there anything like this out there in stat-land?
