Breaking Down the Goalies - NHL

Any given Saturday night on Star Selector we sit and wonder, is tonight the night I captain a goalie, or select one at all. So I decided to get inside the numbers and see if it makes sense, if in the end are the numbers high enough to warrant picking them. Cause I am sure most people sit and think like I do, is tonight the night the guy gets a shutout, or gets lit up.

What I have tried to provide here are a few things;

- Goalies GAA which provides some insight into the possible negatives

- Shutout % which are the number of shutouts per the number of games over his career. The chance tonight might be a the night

- Average shots per game
