2008-09 5v5 Goaltender Performance

New, comments
Last year, I posted my methodology for calculating the quality of shots faced by a goaltender, along with the results of this analysis.

The 2008-09 results are below (minimum 700 minutes played at 5v5). The last column, DELTAGAA, shows how much lower a goaltender's Goals-Against-Average was than we would expect it to be given the shots he faced. Henrik Lundqvist, Tim Thomas and Jonas Hiller are the only goaltenders who appear in the Top 10 both this year and last year.

At any rate, here are the top 10:
