Interesting article from inside the rink and the founder of the web site behind the net on the new round of statistics for hockey. Had some interesting comments on the Preds. Is David Poile the Billy Beane of Hockey?
Really interesting concept about it being all about the control of the flow of shots, and how it's better to have a team full of non-star guys who can consistently check, draw penalties and move the puck, rather than a superstar goalie or flashy high-scoring forward. That does sound like the formula for Nashville, and his comment about sleeper value being "anybody from Nashville" was hilarious!
