What the O-Rating Means

90+: An elite player at the position. Top-3 to Top-5 goalie in the world. All-Star talent!
85-89: A upper-tier player in the NHL that are likely superstars on their team. Young players at this level are destined to be an elite talent.
80-84: A great player that would start for many clubs in the NHL. A top-15 talent at the position.
75-79: A solid player that can be a franchise goaltender for an organization.
65-74: An average player that would start for a bad team, but be a backup for a good team.
55-64: This group covers the average backup goaltender in the NHL. Starters that fall in this category are not likely to hold their job for another season.
54 or less: A player in this category can be a player with not many games under his belt (this can cause a depressed rating), or a very poor performing player. Veterans in this category will not be in the league long.
