Quirky things about the Sens
 
Feel free to add things you find quirky.

1) In regards to the Zibanejad line.

AHL MVP, SEL MVP, Gold Medal winning goalscorer - Pedigree Line

2) Ottawa's shooting percentage is bad, 7.7% Toronto's is good, 11.3% A difference of 45.7% :amazed:

OmniSens 04-18-2013 02:51 PM

Numbers are expected to go down when the team spends a lot of time injured.

This took me way too long to figure out...

Can you explain it? Not embarrassed to say I haven't figure it out.

You're not the only one

45% of 7.7 is the difference between 11.3 and 7.7 (=3.6)

3.6/7.7 = .45 (or 45%)

:teach:

Qward 04-18-2013 03:36 PM

Op's math is wrong anyways. Ottawa's shot percentage is 7.6.
104g/1361sf=7.6%
11.3-7.6= 3.7
3.7/7.6= 48.68%

It is a bad way of looking at it.

The post-58-year-hiatus Ottawa Senators have never won a playoff round without at least one Slovak on the roster.

Yashin 04-18-2013 05:18 PM

Wouldn't it make more sense to say Ottawa's shooting% is 67% of Toronto's?

7.6/11.3 * 100% = 67%

Meh, we have Michalek. Slovakia, Czechoslovakia, what's the difference right? :sarcasm:

Here's something nobody ever would of expected at the start of the year.

Chris Phillips currently leads all Ottawa Senators defensemen in shots on net. His current pace of 149 over an 82 game season would smash his old career high of 107 where if I remember correctly he was used for long stretches as a forward.

Ever since his 1000th game, he really seems to want to convert into an offensive Dman, he's on pace for 24 pts over an 82 game sched, 2 below his career high but pretty respectable when on one of the leagues lowest scoring teams.

Another quirky one is he only has 5 mins more total PP time than Karlsson.

How did a music teacher figure this out? :laugh:

What the shooting % means is that the Leafs score almost 1.5 goals for every Senator goal if you look at if from a shooting% perspective.

The difference is so large, I believe that it is a reflection of style of play and not random, but I could be wrong.

I think you are wrong. Silfverberg leads sens and all rookies in shots.

You could maybe technically argue that he's a Czechoslovakian, since he was born before the country dissolved into the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

That still counts, right?

During an out-of-town broadcast earlier this year a play-by-play announcer told a story of how Alfie and Phillips were talking during the lockout about how Phillips should shoot more. He wanted to score 10 goals and beat his previous high of 8. Alfie put the blade of his stick to a different slant and its allowed him to get shots off quicker. He's got 5 up this year, I'm hoping he can hit his goal before he retires.

Would've been so much easier if you just said a difference of 3.6%

I believe the convention is to say the difference is 3.6 percentage points, like they do in financial reports.

There was no dash. It was one word.

And no, czechs and slovaks are not the same thing at all. That country was an artificial creation after ww1.

Which sounds more impressive.

Toronto's shooting percentage is almost 50% higher than Ottawa's

OR

Toronto's shooting percentage is 3.6 points higher than Ottawa's

:laugh:
