Goalie wins (2007)

The new rules giving goaltenders wins in shoot-out has resulted in a lot more wins for goaltenders as they can no longer tie. In addition goaltenders are given a OTL for a overtime or shoot-out loss instead of a loss. In other words most goalies will have more wins than losses. Goaltenders are now getting 40-win seasons. Many websites list goaltender wins as one of their primary goaltender statistics. Instead of including all the "false" wins in overtime and shoot-out, I've made a list of goalie wins in regulation. Also included in the table is the NHL wins and the regulation win percentage. So here's the list [updated version on my website]:

Nice but why do you considered OTW as "false" win? Those wins were already there before the shootout. Shouldn't excluding only SOW be a better way to compare wins thru the years?
