The save percentage this season so far has been higher than that of last season's totals.
As a goalie myself who has had to argue with those people who complain about goalie gear sizing, I am so happy to see this.
This means nothing until you only look at 5v5 SV%. Are the penalties being called the same, giving the same % of 4v5 and 3v5 time? That has a significant effect on total SV%.
My quick look at 5v5 SV% (not a true look as I am averaging the SV% of each goaltender, not summing the total shots and goals)
2013 - 92.05%
2012 - 92.70%
I would say these are basically equal.
