I realize you're a fanboy, but the PP with Carle out there QBing as opposed to Timonen dropped in
effectiveness by a full 3 *ing goals per 60 minutes.

The year before that, Carle had a GFON/60 of 8.62. Timonen had a GFON/60 of 7.10.

So, Timonen had a net rate drop of 0.51 GFON/60 on the PP last year, and Carle had a net drop of 5.11. Matt Carle's decreased effectiveness on the PP last year is a BIG reason the PP struggled the way it did. The moment Timonen went off the ice, we couldn't score PP goals.

The argument that Carle did not produce as expected on the PP does hold water. It's based in empirical reality, not fanboy fantasyland. Carle SUCKED on the PP last year, and it really hurt the team.
I like your statistical analysis, but I could have done without the customary flaming at the end.
