What is, in your opinion, the single most important statistic? I know you're supposed to use all 3 major stats (Wins, GAA, SV%), but if you had to judge a goalie based on one, which stat would you use and why?

GAA and Wins are a team thing and Sv% is more individual (but a team can allow the opponent to take a lot of bad shots since they know you can save them easily). Therefore, since this is a team game and a team's culture is more important than stats, Wins are the most important.
Save percentage is arguably the "purest" of all the standard goalie stats, in that it's the least affected by the team's overall quality. But like all other stats, it's still far from perfect, of course.
