+

Fabian Brunnstrom, the one-time highly touted Swedish prodigy, has signed a three-year contract with Frolunda, a club in the Swedish Elite League Red Wings Ken Holland said "We're looking for certain types of guys (for Grand Rapids), I think Brunnstrom is a good player, but we need leadership, toughness down there.'' in explaining not offering a contract to Brunnstrom.

2011-12 NHL PLAYER USAGE CHARTS

2

Robert Vollman of HockeyAbstract.com and ESPN Insider released the 2011-12 Player Usage Charts, which are a graphical representation of the Zone Starts, Quality of Competition, and Relative Corsi statistics, with a separate chart for each team. The charts are a visually interesting way to immediately see how a player was used by a particular team and how well they did in that role. They’re not perfect, but they are useful. The title link takes you to a pdf with all NHL teams listed. A big stick tap to Josh Lile whose analysis appears in the report. I'm sure he will be making a Stars specific post on that data soon. Also Backhand Shelf looked at the data as it relates to the Kings & Devils. The beginning of the pdf document has a very nice section on how to read the chart.

Devils 4th Line Scoring!

+

The Devils 4th line has scored NINE GOALS in the playoffs, including the opening goal in the deciding game 6! Did the Stars 4th line score that much in the entire season?!? And not a single one of them was on the team to start the season. And we thought Nystrom was special! So this is what depth looks like.

How is Ovechkin (Ribero) actually being used?

+

I had to check the byline to make sure this wasn't written by Josh! In your mind just substitute Ribero for Ovechkin to get an idea of how Gully should be playing him next year! The other interesting thing is to contrast Hunter and Gulitzan. Hunter seems to really grasp maximizing matchups to his team/players strengths. I think Gully is starting to get this.

Just wanted to memorialize this day. Hopefully the first of many more, though I will settle for it if the next time is April 8! Who would have predicted the Stars in first place in the first week of March! They would have been accused of depending on intangibles! GO STARS!
