Speaking for All Y'all at The Team 1260 About the #NHLJets


Lowetide has invited me to chat about the Jets starting at 12pm (more like 1pm, damn Mountain Time); they even let you call in, which is ridiculous because I'm speaking for everyone in broad terms and with appropriate flair for the dramatic. All topics will be covered, don't worry, I got this. In all honesty, my wife told me I have a terrible radio voice. Be prepared to laugh at me.

Shot Quality, Once Again, Doesn't Prove to Be A Major Factor


A lot of dedicated, admirable people gave their time for recording scoring chances over the last few years, so it's tough for me to see these results on one hand. On the other, it reiterates previous studies that have suggested that the "shot quality" argument has no legs. Great work from Eric T., and more importantly great work from all those scoring chance counters. We couldn't have done this without you.

Pilot's Logbook 2011-12: Johnny Oduya


The Pilot's Logbook arrives at the dearly departed Johnny Oduya, and all his wacky TOI usage. May he rest in Chicago millions.
