All-Encompasing Defensive Metric?

Has there been any work on one? Preferably a little more scientific than DGVT.

Something that factors in shots against, goals against, misses against, OffZoneSt%, QualComp etc.?

I experimented a little but never got anything I was too happy with.

There has been some god work by two college professors: Brian Macdonald from West Point and Michael Schuckers from St Lawrence.

I'd recommend looking at both their papers (warning: parts are difficult to understand), as both look at both offensive and defensive performance. Very good steps in the area of hockey analytics.
