Special Teams correlation to Stanley Cups

Quote:

Conclusions: For a team to have a chance to win Lord Stanley's Cup, they must be successful in the three areas of hockey, even-strength, power play and penalty kill. When it comes to special teams, there is a greater need to be good at penalty killing than on the power play. With the exceptions of the 2011-12 Boston Bruins and 2005-06 Carolina Hurricanes, none of the past 10 Stanley Cup winners ranked lower than 10th in regular season penalty kill percentage. On the other hand, several teams with a mediocre regular season power play percentage have been able to overcome the short-coming and have gone on to win it all. The extreme example is the 2002-03 New Jersey Devils whose power play ranked dead-last that season. When picking who will win this year, a team's penalty kill percentage may be one reliable indicator in helping you make your choice.

Wow. What a sad attempt at looking at some "statistics." Yikes, awful awful article. This could be almost entirely noise for all we know. Nowhere is there any "correlation" involved; or any meaningful statistics of any kind.

This particular article isn't the best but the author isn't wrong- I've read some much more well-written articles that have supported the claim

PK is far more important than PP. Everyone knows that.

A bad PP means 2 minutes are burned, but nothing is actually lost. If you're really good at even strength, that 2 minutes off the clock probably isn't all that important to you.

A bad PK means a puck in your net. When that happens a lot, you lose.

You can survive a bad power play, but a bad PK will kill you more often than not. Simple as as that.

What?

The bold is very true...

You take a bad penalty and fail to kill it, or fail to capitalize on a PP - that could cost you the season...

I will say this - championship teams will always get through the "adversity" of a bad call or a bad penalty.
