Good NBC program is on hiatus

Hm, an NBC property with a highly-dedicated, yet small, fan base didn’t start up this fall as was expected. Instead, they’re showing, well, who knows, because who watches NBC?

Point Projections: Defensemen

Every year we project how many points each of the players will score using a couple of different statistical methods, and why should a potential lockout season be any different? If you’re just tuning in, we explained our methodology in more detail in our first piece, which covered the top-six forwards.  This time we’ll cover…

HOW WOULD THE 2013 DRAFT WORK?

Jake Gardiner and the “Mikhail Grabovski Expectation”

Something different. The chart after the jump will be something called “The Mikhail Grabovski expectation”. It comes from a few days of sleuthing around every single Jake Gardiner statistic I could find, looking for some kind of lead, or some kind of reasonable explanation for why a plus-Corsi defenceman on a minus-possession team like the…
