If you say that then the only stat that matters for goalies is save %. Wins are probably even more dependant on the team than GAA, because the goalie could stop 75 shots and let one by, but if his team doesn't score a goal he's fucked. Hell even save % depends on his team because they can make the shots a hell of a lot easier to stop if they do their job.
New league, all that matters is which team has the prettiest jerseys and which players get the most bras thrown at them.
If anything needs to be replaced, my vote is for ATOI. When I googled it to see what it meant, I ran across several message board comments which basically said, "this is the dumbest fucking stat in the world." I'm used to it now, so it doesn't bother me as much, but great players on great teams get less minutes than decent players on shitty teams, so the how is the stat relevant?
ATOI is pretty pointless too because it is basically in every other stat. If a guy plays more minutes, he will score more goals, get more assists and take more shots.
The only difference is that +/- is in this league too, so if a player plays lots of minutes for a crappy team, his +/- will probably suck, so you lose out there.
Though the lineup has yet to come out, (should be in the next few weeks though) you should consider Osheaga in Montreal.
1. It's really well organized. 2. Beer guys a shots girls wander the crowd selling booze, so you don't have to move to get a drink. 3. It's in fucking Montreal, the most party city in Canada. (insert Canada doesn't know how to party joke) 4. It's fairly cheap.
I figured you were banking on my Kesler boner. I would have made a counter offer with one of my other two best D men but I put that on here and you just asked for Letang again, so I didn't bother since you don't seem interested in either of them.
I'd be willing to be you tickets will be cheaper in May than they are now. Currently the cheapest ticket on stubhub is $565 and there are 326 tickets. I would be totally shocked if tickets can't be gotten for cheaper than that in the next couple months.
