Schneider and Luongo; Just the stats, sir

What follows is a dry look at two goaltenders for the Vancouver Canucks this season.

In no way am I claiming that any of the following information is predictive. All I can tell you is that it is reliable, and takes into account both Canucks’ goaltenders over 87 games this season.

  • Great post Cam;
    One exception Strength of opposition. It’s complex but I found Cory actually played against slightly easier comp. could explain/account for slight diff. in even strength save%.We are all waiting for Cory’s regression re: pp save % should hit hard/unless he has special talent?

    • I don’t know of all Schneids’ starts, but he was in for our biggest games:
      …and won those games.
      I totally disagree with your “played against easier comp” note.

  • Chris.

    Excellent information.

    So, we can (possibly…) explain away the slight differences in a few stats, but, does anyone have an explanation for the weaker Goal Support Cory got: 2.79 v 3.09 ?

    Does not seem to be an insignificant difference.

    Makes me wonder whether the Canucks are:
    i) taking it easier when Cory’s in net?
    ii) playing down to the competition (assuming he’s being protected to a degree) ?
