Yes, I'm kidding people.
Last night proved it isn't.
Totally agree. I guess I'm just saying that there is a reason to do some things in season (and a precedent set for doing that), if it makes no sense whatsoever to leave something as it was previously set. That's how I feel about the existing save percentage system, though I always leave open the possibility that I could be missing something.Just remember that the Max GP isn't a "rule change" per se, it's actually keeping the same rule in place since this is now a 56-game season, and not an 82-game season. Obviously it would make no sense whatsoever to implement that change to lower max GP next off-season, since the NHL should be going right back to 82 games.
Wasnt the year 1 goalie scoring based on year end sv % for a goalie who played 10 or more games?I've asked a couple of people involved in the creation of the league, and no one seems to remember exactly who came up with these settings in the first place lol. Even though I have a feeling that there is a reason for the way it's set up, I can't justify leaving it as is without that explanation.
There was a big debate on the board back then that save percentage was basically the only stat worth monitoring for goalies. While that is still debatable to some extent, they were right that it's by far the most important stat.
Unless some new info comes in, we will definitely add additional scoring to cover that .940-.999 window.
