All I keep hearing about is Hamhuis is AWFUL this year. Ok, let's look at statistically:

This year: Even strength ice time per game 17:41, PK time 2:40, PP time :27
Last year: Even strength ice time per game 17:44, PK time 3:41, PP time 1:24

This year: 3 goals, 8 assists, 11 points in 32 games, 7G, 17A, 24 point pace
Last year: 3 goals, 23 assists, 26 points in 82 games

His PK time is down simply because Nashville's PMs are down this year. This year Nashville is averaging 9.6 Minutes per game. last year it was 12.1

Last year Nashville had 411 penalties, this year they are on pace for 323.
Power play oppertunities: Last year 318, this year's pace 308.

So I look at this and I have to say, what has changed about this team?

Weber 23:10 minutes a game, Last year: 23:58
Suter 24:05 minutes a game, Last year: 24:15

this is a push but their offensive stats are down with their +/- going up.

Zanon is replaced by Klein, De Vries was replaced by Bouillon, Koistenen is replaced by Franson.

All of these are big upgrades and explain the number of shifts going down for Hamhuis. going from 2,200 to 1,800 pace.

If anything, looking at the stats. the talent surrounding Hamhuis has gotten much better. Hamhuis is still statistically is Hamhuis. If anything, his goal scoring is better But this is a statistical analysis not a emperial view.
