So not only does Plante have the best mark ever in '70-'71, but this also gives him the second best mark ever. Not bad considering his age at the time.

The only "missing year" mark yet to be revealed that might top it would be Tony Esposito in '71-'72 considering how low his GAA was.

Not only that, but it was a different team. So there's no "oh, it was just the way they played, they gave up a lot of easy shots" argument to be made.

Plante's the man!

hall and plante played a similar number of games (41 for hall, 37 for plante), but hall was 1st AS, and the 2nd goalie in hart voting. giacomin was 2nd AS, and was the 1st goalie in hart voting.

it is easy to make that argument.

of all STL's goalies who faced even 1 shot, all were in the top 5 of 37 goalies in sv%.


based on reckoning's earlier thread, in '70, STL goalie ernie wakely was .929, 2nd to esposito (who was .932). wakely also had the best GAA in '70.
wakely played 113 games in his NHL career. 2nd WHA AS in '78.

plante, STL's starter in '70, was .919, 5th among goalies who played >1500 minutes.

plante faced the least number of shots per 60 minutes, and wakely faced the 3rd least per 60.


but when plante played for TML in '71, STL dropped from 2nd in GA to 4th, and TML rose from 9th in GA to 4th.
