It should be 3 points for a shutout and 2 for a win. I'm not sure why it isn't. A goalie with 10 shutouts and 50 wins (HIGHLY unlikely) is worth about what the 30th ranked skater is worth (going by fantrax's 2010-11 results). I don't see how that really changes the importance of drafting goalies in earlier rounds. They still wouldn't be worth very much.
Last season, for example, the highest point total for a goalie would have been Henrik Lundqvist with 105 points, putting him in a tie for 68th in points last season.
That makes 2/3 through the 5th round the earliest time to select a goalie in the draft. Outside of Flo's auto-select in the 4th and 5th round, no one took a goalie before the 6th round.
I think this is a very reasonable suggestion and I don't agree that "we agreed before the draft" is an adequate reason to leave the scoring as is. Goalies are virtually irrelevant in the current setup. Quite frankly, we're now in for money (regardless of how little it is) and the league should be set up properly. Adjusting scoring as I'm suggesting would do just that.
Can everyone please seriously consider this? Thanks.
