Ok, I really only have one question for Power Scout Hockey

According to their goaltending analysis, goalies drive 27% of winning.  According to, NHL teams spent $116M above minimum salary on goaltenders this year.  That's about 9% of the total salary above minimum in the league, and has been between 8.6% and 10.4% over the last four seasons. 

In essence, they're telling us that goaltenders are paid 1/3 of their total value.

I'd like to see some proof of that...Once we've got that, we can move on to the intricacies of the model.
