Top Save Percentage since the lockout

by Robert Vollman

Minimum 5000 shots:
.9224 Tomas Vokoun, Florida
.9185 Niklas Backstrom, Minnesota
.9178 Tim Thomas, Boston
.9174 Roberto Luongo, Vancouver
.9171 Henrik Lundqvist, NY Rangers
.9166 Martin Brodeur, New Jersey
.9155 Ryan Miller, Buffalo
.9144 Cristobal Huet, Chicago
.9140 Ilya Bryzgalov, Phoenix
.9138 Miikka Kiprusoff, Calgary
BIG lead for Tomas Vokoun, but then very tightly packed from #2 to #10.  Goalies making $6 million and not on this list: J-S Giguere (Toronto .9123), Evgeni Navokov (San Jose .9098).  $5 million: Marty Turco (Dallas .9051).  Most affordable top-10 goalie: Ilya Bryzgalov at $4.25.
.8999 Jose Theodore, Washington $4.5 million
.8975 Vesa Toskala, Calgary $4.0 million
Sub-.900 and yet still manage to get enough playing time to face 5000 shots and get $4 million.  That’s a skill.

Min 1000 shots:
.9258 Tuukka Rask, Boston
.9224 Jimmy Howard, Detroit
.9224 Tomas Vokoun, Florida
.9191 Jonas Hiller, Anaheim
.9185 Niklas Backstrom, Minnesota

Sample size way too small but still interesting to see where Rask, Howard and Hiller could fit.  Highest paid of those three: Hiller at $1.3 million.
.8896 Hannu Toivonen
.8894 Robert Esche
.8890 John Grahame
.8820 Jussi Markkanen
.8747 Dan Cloutier

  1. […] A number of readers have written in to point out that the Red Sox‘ desire to use Jon Papelbon as a starting pitcher stems not from strategic imperatives — strategic imperatives that I contend are misplaced — but from medical ones. Theo Epstein, in consultation with his medical staff, thinks that there will be less strain on Papelbon’s shoulder if he pitches every fifth or sixth day, instead of getting up and down several times a week.
