(#344) By the Numbers: A deeper look at GF vs. xGF
Today's issue looks deeper at goals. You know, the things that ultimately help teams win hockey games?
Who is scoring more than they should? Who is scoring less than they should? In other words, who should see big increases in scoring if they keep playing the way they're playing?
Also, what about special teams? I have a strong dislike for power-play percentage and penalty-kill percentage. I don't think it's a good stat, because not every penalty is created equal. So, I have a different way of comparing those units.
Lastly, American players in the CHL are at a 20-year low.
