This link is to one of my favorite hockey blogs around, Brodeur is a Fraud. This is a goalie-oriented statistics blog that looks at individual netminder performance, separating perceived skill from team advantage. The author (known as "the Contrarian Goaltender") provides a unique perspective gained from insane data-gathering and strong statistical analysis. The particular post I'm linking to is an article from late September about our own Steve Mason. Here, the author looks at Mason's historical stats and critiques the new contract signed this summer. It's interesting to see how an outsider views Mason, especially after the recent awful play out of the former Calder-winner. Read this one, then check out the rest of the site. Thanks to this blog, I'm now found looking more at save percentage and individual goalie play. Check out why the titular Devils goalie is a "fraud" and why Dominik Hasek is a true goalie-legend.
