Thursday's Numbers: Detroit's streak


Vancouver is in Detroit tonight. Detroit have won 23* games in a row at home. Obviously, there is a reason for this. Is the team excellent at home or is it just percentages? Unfortunately, I can't...

Tuesday's Numbers: Do offensive zone starts help scorers?


@dstaples I think D. Sedin would have 7-9 fewer EV points this season if he got 50% o-zone starts — Gabriel Desjardins (@behindthenet) February 21, 2012 I retweeted this comment from Now,...

Thursday's Numbers: Malhotra's role is more important than Hodgson's


I got into another Twitter debate on Cody Minutes v. Manny Minutes today. I guess doing research that shows that Hodgson scores at a higher rate when he plays 14:28 or less isn't enough to satisfy...

Tuesday's Numbers: Can Chris Higgins come back, yet?


The worst staph infection ever. Chris Higgins is back on the ice, and, according to the Ben Kuzma story linked to by Jordan earlier, could make his way back into the lineup tomorrow against...

Thursdays Numbers, on a Friday: The Canucks' fortunes. How?


Finally, for the first time in what seems like a month, the Vancouver Canucks played back-to-back strong games, with an impressive score-tied performance against Nashville backed up by a clear...

Tuesday's Numbers: John Garrett's shootout master plan


"Hey guys, the Canucks are awful at shootouts. I've watched them a bunch this season and it just seems that way, and since every second game has gone to a shootout lately, the Canucks really need...

Thursday's Numbers: The Canucks had a bad January


After a 7-2-2 month, I suppose I'd be a pretty wet blanket to have to say that the Canucks didn't have all that good of a month of January. Rather than team record, which we know by now is really...

Tuesday's Numbers: Do we REALLY know the Chicago Blackhawks?


It seems like we've really gotten to know the Chicago Blackhawks over the last few years, but how much do we really know the Chicago Blackhawks, man? Do we really know anybody? Do we have a mock-up...

Thursday's Numbers: Which Canucks are taking penalties?


Again, a pretty short post today. I'm dealing with a lot of office/administrative issues this week which has cut a lot of time out of my writing, so I'll make a couple of points today about...

Please help victims of the Burns Lake disaster


I want to bring up a very serious issue that's close to me. Living in Kamloops for the last six years, I've met a lot of awesome people from Northern BC. One of my best friends is a terrific hockey player from Burns Lake, where the local sawmill caught fire Friday night and exploded, taking the lives of two and leaving 19 injured. Worse, however, is that the mill was the largest employer in Burns Lake, keeping that town afloat. It's still unsure whether the sawmill will be rebuilt, which would turn Burns Lake into a ghost town. In short, this is devastating for a small town, and my friend texted me worrying that she may not have a hometown anymore. A tragedy fund has been set up. Donations can be made through any CIBC branch in BC, and, for those of you out-of-province, you can donate online to the victims and the town via a tragedy fund set up by the Rotary Club. There are a lot of great people as part of Canucks Nation up North, and I'd love for us to be able to rally around this and step up and raise a few bucks for a town that needs it.

Tuesday's Numbers: Improving on shot metrics...


This will be a pretty short post today, unfortunately, however I wanted to direct your attention to a pretty good bit of math done over by our SB Nation buddies over at Broad Street Hockey...

Thursday's Numbers: Having fun with the shootout


The Canucks have played in a lot of shootouts recently, scoring, if memory serves correct, twice on nine attempts while allowing goals on, again, I'm chalking this up to memory, three times on ten...

Tuesday's Numbers: Walking on eggshells


The hockey sphere has been pre-occupied somewhat over the last few weeks. I believe those of us who follow the Vancouver Canucks have had to deal with Christmas, the World Juniors, fall-out from...

Thursday's Numbers: Adjusting Individual Fenwick for score-tied situations


We count quality shots, too, but we hardly need to. There's a similarity between individual player shot differential and scoring chance differential the more games you play, I think these numbers...

Tuesday's Numbers: Penalties, powerplays and playoffs


Well, the game on Saturday was certainly something, eh? There was also a tremendous amount of chatter about how the game was called, that the Vancouver Canucks may have a chance against the Boston...

Thursday's numbers: On the rebound...


I would really love to spend this space making fun of the Minnesota Wild, whose fans are sadly coming to the realization that their team may not be as good as they thought they were, but I think...

Tuesday's Numbers: What are 'Cody's Minutes'?


Cody's minutes are Cody's minutes. I have got the luxury of having a Hart (winner) on our team and a Selke winner. Those guys are going to get, on most nights, 19 to 20 minutes each. There's 20...

Thursday's Numbers: The guys who score the most at evens


Author's note: I am away for the week and don't have an Internet connection viable enough to make a post after collecting sufficient enough data from the Canucks' game against the Sharks last...

Tuesday's Numbers: The Canucks' recent run is unsustainable


In the last four games, despite the 3-1 record, Vancouver's actually played pretty mediocre according to score-tied, even strength metrics. Part of that is that they've given so little time for...

Thursday's Numbers: 712 words on Kevin Bieksa


Kevin Bieksa, transgressions aside—being a guy who, along with Ryan Kesler, is "too dirty" one night and "not tough enough" the next night—is a fantastic hockey player and one of the all-underrated...

Tuesday's Numbers: The ever-improving Mason Raymond


The answer to the question "Is Mason Raymond better this season than last season?" is absolutely a resounding yes. No matter what a stat-geek will tell you, about the direction of his shooting...

Thursday's Numbers: On what's really important about starting strong


You often hear announcers wax importance when they display each team's record when a team scores the first goal of the game.Indeed, there is only a single team this season that has a better record...

Tuesday's Numbers: Or, more than you ever wanted to read about the Columbus Blue Jackets


On November 12th, in advance of his team's game ahead of their meeting with the Columbus Blue Jackets, statistician Gabriel Desjardins declared that the then 2-11-1 squad was not, in fact, the...

Thursday's Number: 60, One Revisited


60 is the number for today. The appeal of linking to a Bob Dylan song was too great for me, hence the fancy title. The verse never recorded by Dylan (italicized under the video) is the only thing...

Tuesday's Numbers - PDO revisited


All through October I focused a lot of my noon numbers on the Vancouver Canucks' low PDO totals. The team was performing well but failing to produce—this is quite common for a team at the start of...

Thursday's Number: 54.3 - Redux


There was movement in the Western Conference standings from December 1st last season to the final day. 14 teams were displaced, moving either up or down the table, with the exception of the E...

Canucks scoring chance count and analysis, Nov 29 vs. CBJ


Well, another sorta dominant performance from Cory Schneider Tuesday night, all things considered. He did make 14 saves off of 15 on-net scoring chances, but the overall discrepancy didn't really...

Tuesday's Number: Sedin goal totals


Hey, so if you haven't noticed, Henrik Sedin is leading the Vancouver Canucks in goals, and Daniel Sedin is leading the Vancouver Canucks in assists. Isn't that weird? All life as we know it has...

The Noon Number: 55


Sorry I didn't post a noon number Friday, and that is unfortunately a trend that will continue. I was named on Friday as one of four bloggers to replace the irreplaceable Kurtenblog so, the daily...

The Noon Percentage: 55.4%


55.4% The Vancouver Canucks went 4-6 through the first 10 games of the season, and in the next 11, they've gone 7-4, a much better team. So, what's the easy answer? Shaking off the Stanley Cup...
