Petri Kontiola (updated version):
the comments on that link are brutal towards Phil haha
@wiski Phil: Yes Roger, it feels a little uncomfortable to hold the stick like this, but it's how you do it... Trust me.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwOQ207o2r0 Interesting. From 2012 but, The President of PowerScout Hockey said he was tracking shots immediately after a fight in order to track momentum changes. They found that the 3 minutes after a fight the game opens up and both teams end up getting more shots on net. However the outcome of the fight doesn't seem to favour either team.
have a good one!
Nurse: Dubas a “smart hockey mind”
@Bruffins Imagine at $30/hour that would be $13,500
@Bruffins What kind of internship did you do if you don't mind me asking
Model Points60 is:
"the points/60 a player is expected to achieve, determined by variables beyond a player’s control that have a cause-and-effect relationship with points60 (on-ice Csh%, TMCF20, OppCA20, OZFO%)"
@Bruffins @Burtonboy Not sure I'm interpreting this correctly but what I do see is a trend upwards for Bozak since 2011. I know he won't maintain that insane shooting % he had last yr but he does have a career shooting % of 16 % which is very high. Not unrealistic that Bozak could put up 60 + pts a yr and along with everything else he does . PK and a large number of defensive zone faceoffs. The guy is a valuable player and doesn't deserve the criticism he gets IMO
@Xxxxxnew Interesting. Is this data laid out in a (chocolate) bar graph as well?
@Xxxxxnew Well played sir, well played.
@Xxxxxnew We have a problem here. The player is leaving 2/3 on the table. Player needs to up his corsi chop count.
@Xxxxxnew Did anybody bother asking the kid what it meant?
