Help - Developing a Statistic

I have been dreaming of a consistency statistic for years now.

My thought process is that you can have Player A that plays well 50 games out of 82 and thus contributes more to wins in those 50 games. But then in 32 games he is a bit of a dud and contributes more to losses. This player may have an impressive Corsi & Stats line.

Then you have Player B that plays well 70 games out of 82 and thus contributes more to wins in those 50 games. But then in 12 games a year he is a dud and contributes more to losses. This player may be slightly worse on Corsi and Box Cars but overall he may actually be better to have on your team.

E.G. Sam Gagner's 8 game performance was amazing, but for the sake of making the playoffs it would have been better to take those 8 points and through them into 3 games creating 3 wins instead of 1.

That is the concept, I hope you understand.

So my thoughts on creating this statistic is rather simple. 5 on 5 Corsi %. If 50% or more in an individual game the player would get +1. and 50% or less would get a -1. 50% on the money would be a 0. Then at the end of the season you would have a score. You could adjust it for actual Games Played.

How would I make this better? Is this even a good concept? Does it already exist?
