Robert Mayer's first year in the AHL: 8-8-2, 3.06 GAA, 0.887%
Cedrick Desjardins' first year in the AHL: 4-4-1, 3.04 GAA, 0.909%
That 0.022 difference in sv% is huge. This year in the AHL, for example, it is the difference between ranking 31st and 62nd. In '07/08, that was the difference between 38th and 73rd. W-L record and GAA are more team-based/dependent, but we should all know that by now.
