Over the last decade, goaltender salaries have grown significantly, but they've failed to keep pace with overall salary growth:
|EVSV%||Average||Replacement||Salary Above Min ($M)||$/Win ($M)||Y-over-y Increase (%)||Relative to League|
Replacement was assumed to be 50 points, and wins included OT and SO play - the introduction of the SO increased the number of wins available by 6%, so the growth in salaries is slightly understated. Last season, a league average goaltender - 41 full games played, 919 even-strength save percentage - cost $2.3M. Players on entry-level and RFA contracts obviously cost significantly less.
