Explanation - Goalie-Mania Ratings
The rating shows how a goalie
performs compared to the other goalies in his league. It reflects the
performance of the given year without taking into consideration the
potential of the goalie or his past achievements.
The ratings are based on the following 6
1- Save percentage (65%)
2- Shots per
3- Goals against average (10%)
4- Wins-Losts-Ties ratio (5%)
5- Minutes played (10%)
6- Shutout (Bonus up to 5%)
If a goalie hasn't played a minimum of
minutes, his rating will be reduced. The minimum is fixed at 50% of the
maximum of the league (the goalie who has played the most minutes).
MSP (Minimum Save
Percentage) and Performance Index
What is the MSP?
The MSP is a new stat
developed by GoalieMania to show what save percentage a goaltender have
to maintain a ,500 record (wins = loses)
How is the MSP calculated?
First, we substract the average
goals score by the goaltender’s team from the number of shots the
goaltender receive per game. We divide this difference by the shots per
game of the goaltender and we have the MSP of the goalie.
Example : J-S Gigučre
|34 wins, 22 loses, 6 ties (winning %
= 59,7% )|
|Average shots received per game :
|Goals scored by Anaheim : 203 (2,48
by game) |
28,8 (SPG) – 2,48 (goals by the team) =
26,32 / 28,8 (SPG) = ,914 (Minimum
How to evaluate this stat?
By comparing the MSP of a
goaltender with his wins-lost record, it’s easier to see how much he was
valuable to his team. A goalie with a MSP of ,850 who wins 75% of his
games is not as good as another one who has a MSP of ,925 and wins 50% of
What is the Performance Index?
The performance index is
relating the winning percentage of the goaltender and his MSP. The more
the MSP and the winning % of a goalie are high, the more the Performance
Index will to be high. The performance index gives the opportunity to
evaluate a goalie by taking his team's performance in consideration.
