Over the Hiller?

*Sorry guys can't get charts to stick (fix SB nation fix!!). Try this link, and you'll have to workout where they stick:

Where does Hiller stand with the franchise going into the post-season and should we ride him harder than seas biscuit?

Firstly a look at Hillers seasonal SV% game-by-game

There are obviously a lot of dips in play this season below his seasonal average of 0.911, and seemingly a trend for a few below 0.910. However he has 5 shutouts.

Curious to how much they swayed his score i took them out of the equation to find an average. To keep things fair I also took out Hillers worst 5 games (as far as SV% goes). The adjusted average accounting for Hillers best and worst 5 games is .906, significantly worse than the stated .911

In addition it was interesting to see where Hiller sat in terms of goalies for wins and SV%. The chart below runs winningest goalies from left to right. Hillers SV% is the 0.911 stated on nhl.com.

Judge for yourself but amongst that group of players are a number of goalies we will run into in the postseason. Of those top 30 (for wins), Hiller may be 11th in wins (and 17th for starts), but 22 goalies on that list have better SV%'s. It seems that Hillers wins have not come about as a result of his stellar play, baring but a few games, and more from our league leading offence (3.21 goals per game).
