Another Fake Award Winner! And Additional Tiberius numbers

 

For the third time this season, we're able to announce a Fake Award Winner! Winning his second Fake Award of the 09-10 season is....

DEREK MEECH!

Everyone's favorite almost-Red Wing clinched -- for the second year in a row -- the Derek Meech Award (who knew?!) given at the year's end to the Red Wings player that spent the most games in the press box. Meech was a healthy scratch 35 times last season. With thirteen games left in this season, Meech has a big enough lead on any active Red Wing to have clinched the Award again - and could, if he doesn't see the ice again, break his record from a year ago:

1. Derek Meech (26)

2. Brad May (14) -- no longer with the Red Wings
3. Ville Leino (13) -- no longer with the Red Wings
T4. Patrick Eaves (7)
T4. Brett Lebda (7)

Earlier in the week, Casey took a look at Jimmy Howard's numbers compared to the last five Calder-winning goaltenders. It was a great read, so give it a look, but it got me thinking...how do his numbers stack up against other Red Wings starting goaltenders (can we all agree yet that he is, in fact, the starting goaltender?) from the last 25 years? I compared his current numbers (wins, goals against average, and save percentage) to the goaltender that played the most games in each of the last 25 seasons. If it was split nearly down the middle, I took the single 'tender that played the most minutes. Obviously, there's no guarantee that Howard's numbers stay the same -- they could fluctuate up or down (except wins, of course, which is ONLY GOING UP BABY!), but that's why they call them "averages," they are a pretty good meter of your level of play throughout a season or a career

For the record, the least amount of wins for a Red Wings starter the last quarter century is Greg Stefan in 1985-86 with 10. TEN! Thus the award named after him below...

The worst goals against the last twenty-five years belongs to... YUP! You guessed it. Greg Stefan in 85-86, 4.50.

SINGLE SEASON SAVE PERCENTAGE
1 :: 09-10 :: Howard :: .924
2 :: 03-04 :: Legace :: .920

T10 :: 96-97 :: Osgood :: .910
T10 :: 98-99 :: Osgood :: .910
The worst save percentage of this sample group is -- well I'll be damned -- Greg Stefan in 1985-86, at .856. Interestingly, the worst save percentage for a starting goalie in the last 15 years was Chris Osgood from last season, .887.
