Bounce-back season needed: Tyler Kennedy

A lot has been digital ink here has been spilled on line combinations for Sharks' forwards. With Brent Burns returning to the blue line and the team only re-signing its own FAs, it seems to me that...

Forget all that other crap: Demers (2013-2014) vs. Sharks RD gold standard (Boyle, ca. 2008-2012)

What was it like? Before the Thornton to Toronto rumo(u)rs… before the "rebuild" and being a "tomorrow team". Before the notion that BLWO TI UP could actually be a thing that would make me laugh...

Analyzing the Stalock Signing (or: Hey there, glass. Looking all half-full, I see.)

[N.B.: This was originally written before Jake Sundstrom’s rager and is not a response to it; though I think they are both outlets for coping with this off-season.] Hockey giveth and hockey...

A short note on the Burns "experiment": what about his 2010-2012 numbers?

Let me open by stating that I love Brent Burns as a forward. Great style of play and very effective. I absolutely buy Neutral’s argument that the "experiment" was a success. However, I think two...

A closer look at the value of "scoring chances" (semi-response to Elvis)

There's a million things about this game and this team that I'd love to unpack, but earlier today I posted a question in the comments of Scoring Chances: Game 30, and then Elvis added his own set...

A quick hit on "good" shot-blocking teams

There was a good comment earlier saying something to the effect of: teams that block a lot of shots aren't necessarily good shot-blocking teams. This made me get on the data horse and gather up...

How often do we see Stuart-Hannan?

I wanted to put up some data to provide context to the possibility of a long-term Stuart-Hannan pairing. Is this just a fling or something special? Man, I don't think it's a great idea (and many...

Do puck possession teams lag in hitting (and does it appear to matter)?

Recently, there has been a good amount of talk about the Toronto Maple Leafs with regard to some emerging statistical tools. One article (e.g. here) went so far to call the team’s season a...

Team > Code (a different way to read all this stuff re: Hertl's 4th goal)

I was going to write something in the comments section, but it got way too long. I did not watch the Sharks vs NYR game live, so you can imagine my spit-take when reading the Extra Skater box score...

From the anatomy of shot suppression to a 2x2 response matrix

This is a follow-up on the phenomenon of "shot suppression". Weak stomach? Turn away. This might get a little gory. I started with a precision cut and ended up with splattered guts everywhere. The...

Total tangent: does greater Corsi For lead to fewer Corsi against (i.e. shot suppression)?

It's getting close. Oh man, it's getting close. It's so close I went to watch a Capitals-Flyers rookie game where Peter Laviolette was having a good look at his guys. Saw Paul Holmgren in his suit....

Forward pairings 2012-2013 (plus Tyler Kennedy's usage chart)

There is nothing like line speculation to get people excited for hockey. I started a forward pairing sheet of CF% (Corsi For %) when the season ended (via stats.hockeyanalysis.com), and I can't...

I still can't quit thinking about goalies

In a comment elsewhere, I tossed out the idea of a graph of game-to-game (individual game) SV% of all goalies just to show how the distribution was quite similar; i.e. to paraphrase holidaypark:...

NHL.com's use of "shot attempts" (2007-2012)

Something a little bit different. I did the initial data gather on this earlier in the month, but the delay has made for good timing given the recent use of "Corsi" in the Boston Globe (and the...

Counting Zone Entries: so, what's that like?

(NB: I was going to post this much earlier, but even a few weeks late, I think there's enough here worth sharing.) There is some emerging statistical work being on zone entries (e.g. the MIT Sloan...

Temporary end to the goalie conversation

This is an attempt to leave behind the question of goalie variation (for now!). Some points: 1) Man, I need to learn more before I go further. Pretty clear.2) In the meantime, I did produce goalie...

Come and get your random samples! (just a slice of SV% deviation data)

A couple ideas on SV% variation (response to holiday park)

Let me start by saying that the idea of variation in SV% IS an interesting topic to explore. Holiday park has started this, so let's keep it going. I'm going to have a quick stab at "Evaluating...

Need a distraction? (wtf Game 2) Come follow.

Unpacking score effects (i.e. dangitquick)

An exercise to flatten fluctuations in optimism: historical cases of below-average goalie performance, yet winning the Cup

Sharks vs. Sharks: A glance at the numbers (and a case for Niemi-inspired optimism)

Response to PDOfrock: Comparing streaks (test case of shots in sets of 7)

Douglas Murray: regardez le nombres

If there's one thing many people have agreed on it's that Douglas Murray 2012-2013 is killing our perception of Douglas Murray prior to 2012-2013. (We can let Douglas Murray 2011-2012 have his...
