2 thoughts on “Hockey Graphs Podcast Episode 27 – Why goalies should be shrunk for scoring.

  1. I haven’t seen anyone look at the scoring (non?)-issue from this point before, but is there any chance that the downfall of the helmet puncher has something do down with decreased scoring? I’m not sure how easy/hard it would be to do something like compare the average 5-5 save percentage over the years while 4th liners are on the ice vs. when first liners are on the ice. If today’s forth liners are better at keeping shots to the low percentage areas what fraction of the shots a goalie will face are affected by this change and how much of an impact their overall save percentage/the number of goals scored per game?
