If you made the same graph for goalies from the last couple years couldn't you see how related it is to their team's pk percentage? It seems to me that they're pretty strongly related. There are many factors that would come into it (how many games that goalie played, how well their backup played) but I think a team's pk percentage definitely affects a goalie's pk numbers by what I saw. I think Niemi's overall save percentage is going to go up next year because his pk save percentage is going to. That is going to go up not because his pk numbers are going to go back to their average, but because the Sharks pk is going to go to back to their average (maybe even better with the addition of Stuart).
And after I wrote this I see that the Sharks didn't have a great pk in 10-11 either lol. Thought they were one of the better teams for pk that year for some reason.
