Goaltender Save Percentage Rankings Since 2005-06

Someone turn him around and bring him back! - Christian Petersen

Tim Thomas is outstanding, Antti Niemi and Devan Dubnyk surprising, and Nikolai Khabibulin is stunning.

The number at the left is the individual total save percentage rank in the NHL since the 2005-06 season for qualifying goalies. In this case a "qualifying season" is one in which the goaltender played in 25 regular season games or more. The number on the far right is the goaltender's total save percentage in those qualifying seasons only, and the numbers in between are the totals from those qualifying seasons. Using a 25 game cutoff eliminates one-offs, injury-filled seasons and eliminates anyone not eligible for the Jennings Trophy, a random cutoff to be sure, but, hey, at least it's consistent. Note that in 2012-13, a qualifying season was 15 games.

Only goaltenders with two more more qualifying seasons were considered.

  • Tim Thomas is good. Garth Snow should talk him into coming back.
  • Raise your hand if you expected to see Devan Dubnyk there.
  • Nikolai Khabibulin got a two-year deal and he's ranked 57th.
