    The Vezina Trophy is awarded annually to the National Hockey League's goaltender who is "adjudged to be the best at this position".

    Here is last season's thread to give an idea of the new system we use to get the 5 finalists. It leaves less room for subjectivity and is purely stats based. Quite frankly there were a ton of outstanding goalie performances this season, so leaving it up to numbers we felt was the most fair way to whittle this down to 5.

    https://www.leaguegaming.com/forums/index.php?threads/season-8-vezina-trophy-voting.277600/

    Here's the important excerpt which basically gives an example of how it works;

    Picking the Top 6:

    First we ranked them from 1-14 in Save Percentage. S% is the clearest and most important metric for goaltenders as its a clear indicator of their performance. The more pucks you stop, the better you are.

    Each of the 14 were given a point value, for example @TheyCallMeRevv finished first in S% so he was awarded 14 points. @Krok-o-dill finished second in S% so he was awarded 13 points, and so forth.

    Then we ranked them from 1-14 in Goals against average. This is a little less player based and involves some dependency on the team they play for, so they were award 50% of the value they received for S%. For example @XGeneral420X finished first in GAA so he was award 7 points, @TheyCallMeRevv finished second so he was awards 6.5, and so on all the way through for the 14 goalies.

    Next was Wins. This is the most team dependent stat so the 14 were ranked 1-14 and were given 25% of the value they received for S%. For example @Ucantcme_kamakaz finished in first for wins (tied with @XGeneral420X and @DrNasty415 for 35 but tie breaker was fewer games) so he was awarded 3.5 points, @DrNasty415 was awarded 3.25 points and so forth all the was through for the 14 goalies.

    Finally I awarded additional points based on you're ranking for Save Percentage vs playoff teams. The value of this was 25% of the value of overall Save Percentage. For Example @Krok-o-dill finished first in S% vs Playoff teams with 84.3% (very good) so he was awarded 3.5 points, followed by @TheyCallMeRevv who came second with 84.1 and received 3.25 so forth for all 14 goalies.
    ______________________________________________________________________________________

    Which leads us into our Nominees for the Season 9 LGHLPSN Vezina Trophy.

    Before we start, I want to make sure everyone knows that no member of the committee was or will be allowed to vote for an award in which they are nominated.

    The Community Vote will be included in the final vote, along with the committee votes.

    Also, for Strength of schedule, the lower the number, the tougher your schedule. If your SOS was a 7.8 (Conf) and a 15.2 (League), your average game played would be against the 8th place team in the conference, and 15th in the league as a whole. Really high=really poor SOS

    If you guys have any questions as to why someone was not included, I will be happy to answer and provide the numbers to back it up.

    In order to win the Vezina, last season we lowered the games requirement from 40 to 36 as the minimum amount of games played to qualify. This basically ensures that one was the starter for the majority of the season, which is how we'd like to define this, but also is a bit more inclusive.
    ______________________________________________________________________________________

    Here are your 5 finalists for the Season 9 Vezina Trophy;



    @lx JoneZ xl G, Washington Capitals
    Overall Production 88.7 SV%, 1.22 GAA, 14 SO
    Vs. Playoff Teams 16-6-1, 87.7 SV%, 1.33 GAA, 7 SO
    Vs. Nonplayoff Teams 19-5-0, 89.7 SV%, 1.12 GAA, 7 SO
    Record 35-11-1 (47 GP)
    Strength of Schedule 8.43 (Conf), 16.09 (League)
    Quality of Competition 37.82


    Bob Jonez, love him or hate him, the kid can stop pucks, and that he did last season. Jonez led the league in save percentage, goals against average and tied for the league lead in shutouts. He also was 1st in all 3 categories vs Playoff teams. He's shown season after season on both consoles to be one of the best goalies in the game.

    ______________________________________________________________________________________

    @KingKonz- G, Buffalo Sabres
    Overall Production 87.4 SV%, 1.31 GAA, 14 SO
    Vs. Playoff Teams 16-6-2, 85.2 SV%, 1.54 GAA, 3 SO
    Vs. Nonplayoff Teams 24-2-2, 89.3 SV%, 1.12 GAA, 11 SO
    Record 40-8-4 (52 GP)
    Strength of Schedule 9.23 (Conf), 17.69 (League)
    Quality of Competition 37.18


    Konzy was a man on a mission this season, backstopping the cup winning Sabres to a league leading 40 wins. He was 2nd in the league in save percentage and goals against while tying for 1st in shutouts with a record breaking 14. His 11 shutouts vs non-playoff teams were most in the league and his GAA vs playoff teams was also 2nd lowest.

    ______________________________________________________________________________________

    @crofto40 G, New York Rangers
    Overall Production 86.4 SV%, 1.58 GAA, 12 SO
    Vs. Playoff Teams 14-8-3, 81.7 SV%, 2.11 GAA, 4 SO
    Vs. Nonplayoff Teams 21-1-3, 91.0 SV%, 1.06 GAA, 8 SO
    Record 35-9-6 (50 GP)
    Strength of Schedule 8.34 (Conf), 15.90 (League)
    Quality of Competition 37.79


    Long known as a quality goaltender, Crofto took a big leap this season finishing 3rd in the league in all 3 of save percentage, goals against and shutouts. He lost only 1 game in regulation to non-playoff teams all season, posting an absurd 21-1-3 record vs them. However, his numbers did trail off vs playoff teams where he posted 'only' an 81.7 save percentage to go with a 2.11 GAA and 4 shutouts, the first of which being lowest amongst finalists. That said Crofto played the 2nd toughest schedule of finalists and his save percentage and goals against vs non-playoff teams was tops in the league.


    ______________________________________________________________________________________

    @Skinnasty 53 G, New Jersey Devils
    Overall Production 85.7 SV%, 1.63 GAA, 10 SO
    Vs. Playoff Teams 19-6-6, 85.9 SV%, 1.68 GAA, 4 SO
    Vs. Nonplayoff Teams 15-3-1, 85.4 SV%, 1.56 GAA, 6 SO
    Record 34-9-7 (50 GP)
    Strength of Schedule 7.08 (Conf), 13.22 (League)
    Quality of Competition 39.27


    Definitely the biggest personality out of this group, Skinner has gone back and forth between skater and goalie during his LG career, and clearly made the right choice going in net this past season for the Devils. His save percentage was 4th best in the league and 3rd best vs playoff teams. In fact, Skinner was the only goalie to perform better vs playoff teams this season. Not to mention his insanely tough SOS which is almost unmatched for goalies. His 34 wins put him 4th in the league and 10 shutouts put him just outside the top 5.

    ______________________________________________________________________________________

    @Penguins2013 G, San Jose Sharks
    Overall Production 85.2 SV%, 1.72 GAA, 11 SO
    Vs. Playoff Teams 14-7-1, 83.8 SV%, 2.16 GAA, 4 SO
    Vs. Nonplayoff Teams 20-1-2, 86.9 SV%, 1.31 GAA, 7 SO
    Record 34-8-3 (45 GP)
    Strength of Schedule 8.82 (Conf), 17.09 (League)
    Quality of Competition 37.11


    Another guy like Crofto who has been solid for many seasons but took a big leap with the way goalies play this year, Penguins proved to be a rock for the eventual cup finalist Sharks. He was 6th in save percentage amongst qualified goalies, while tying for 4th in the league with 11 shutouts. He posted the best record vs Non-playoff teams at 20-1-2 to go with top 5 in the 3 major categories vs non-playoff teams.

    ______________________________________________________________________________________

    As this was all purely statistical, there was no room for subjectivity but it should be noted that @TheyCallMeRevv, @Jade_Dragoon_ , and @TheBipolarJew69 amongst many others all had outstanding seasons and were no doubt deserving.

    Here are all the stats for every goalie this season and the points tally that determined the finalists.

    How is the league leader in every single statistic besides wins losing by over double the votes, and almost in 3rd. This is not a popularity contest, it is the goalie who had the best regular season based on stats, nothing else. This league has reached an all time bias

    From my experience with crofto on Xbox it wasn’t Fond memories. Congrats on him making it though I don’t hate the guy.
