2007-08 5v5 Goaltender Performance (Full Season)

I finally ran the full-season's worth of shot quality/goaltending statistics (see Mid-Season stats.) There was some discussion over at James Mirtle's site, with some people claiming that Evgeni Nabokov was deserving of the Vezina Trophy - and not Martin Brodeur. The stats don't bear that out:


Nabokov Expected Save PCT 909, Actual 908 - GAA 0.03 higher than average goaltender
Brodeur Expected Save PCT 906, Actual 920 - GAA 0.34 *lower* than average goaltender

Brodeur faced tougher shots than Nabokov, and did a way better job of stopping them. There's no way to argue from a shot quality perspective that Nabokov deserves the award.


Here's the rest of the league, minimum 20 GP:
