Goalie Win-Loss stat

Does anybody else hate that the goalie who gives up the "game winning goal" gets charged with a loss? Anders Lindback was total crap in goal for Tampa Bay tonight giving up 3 goals in 20 minutes and was lifted for Garon. Although Tampa never ended up tying the game, Garon gave up the 4th goal and Tampa got a 3rd, making Bennett's goal the "game winner" giving the loss to Garon.

In baseball, a starting pitcher who leaves the game trailing is on the hook until his team either ties it or goes ahead. Shouldn't it be the same with hockey?

As said before, both scenarios have their drawbacks.

Under the baseball system it is possible for a pitcher to throw 7 innings and only allow 1 run. Get replaced in the 8th and have his replacement get shelled for 6. Even if his team scores 5 runs in the 8th he still gets the loss.

Is it fair for him to get a loss when giving up the first run in a 7-5 loss?

Not as dumb as earning a shutout and still getting an L in the loss column because your team couldn't score either and they lost the dreaded shootout.

Goalies don't get an "L in the loss column" for losing a shootout.

The stat is junk except for fantasy owners so it's irrelevant.

That is why you don't really look at it by itself, and instead look at save percentage and saves made versus shots faced as a better statistic.

Wins are a terrible stat for anything other than a team itself.
