Bandits' one-season records for goalies (1992-2017)

Anthony Cosmo set a Bandits' record by playing for more than 1,000 minutes during the course of the 2014 season. Here's the updated top 10, with Alex Buque sneaking in at No. 9:

Goalie - Year - Minutes
Anthony Cosmo - 2014 - 1,064
Anthony Cosmo - 2015 - 1,014
Steve Dietrich - 2003 - 838
Steve Dietrich - 2002 - 845
Steve Dietrich - 2006 - 812
Mike Thompson - 2011 - 763
Steve Dietrich - 2005 - 750
Anthony Cosmo - 2016 - 711
Alex Buque - 2017-18 - 710
Ken Montour - 2009 - 652

Buque did better in the save category, coming in fifth this past season:

Goalie - Year - Saves
Anthony Cosmo - 2014 - 752
Anthony Cosmo - 2015 - 681
Steve Dietrich - 2002 - 586
Steve Dietrich - 2006 - 568
Alex Buque - 2017-18 - 515
Steve Dietrich - 2005 - 511
Anthony Cosmo - 2016 - 501
Steve Dietrich - 2003 - 480
Ken Montour - 2009- 451
Mike Thompson - 2011 - 450

Those two numbers obviously depends on games. Let's take a look at "first-string goalies" over the years, and see who has made the most saves per 60 minutes of work in a given year. Looks like Buque was rather busy in the past season:

Goalie - Year - Saves - Minutes - S/60M
Anthony Cosmo - 2017 - 437 - 583 - 45.0
Matt Disher - 2000 - 381 - 523 - 43.7
Alex Buque - 2017-18 - 515 - 710 - 43.5
Ken Montour - 2008 - 346 - 481 - 43.2
Bill Gerrie - 1992 - 159 - 222 - 43.0
Anthony Cosmo - 2014 - 752 - 1,064 - 42.4
Anthony Cosmo - 2016 - 501 - 711 - 42.3
Mike Thompson - 2010 - 271 - 387 - 42.0
Steve Dietrich - 2006 - 568 - 812 - 42.0
Steve Dietrich - 2002 - 586 - 845 - 41.6

(Minutes are rounded off for convenience.)

While the numbers were generally in the 30's for much of the 1990s, Bill Gerrie popped up as being particularly busy in the Bandits' first season.

Here's one last list - top 10 in save percentage by a Bandits "regular" goalie, and it looks like goaltending is getting better as time goes by. Buque just made it into the top 10:

Goalie - Year - SPct.
Ken Montour - 2009 - .813
Mike Thompson - 2010 - .809
Ken Montour - 2008 - .808
Steve Dietrich - 2006 - .808
Anthony Cosmo - 2014 - .797
Steve Dietrich - 2005 - .789
Mike Thompson - 2011 - .785
Anthony Cosmo - 2016 - .783
Anthony Cosmo - 2015 - .781
Steve Dietrich - 2002 - .771
Alex Buque - 2017-18 - .771
