I was a bit surprised by some of these numbers TBH.
1. Ryan Kesler and the second line look incredible based on these metrics. Kesler missed the first 6 games then came in slow, but he is still generated a ton and given up very little. Most fans just ripped him up until about 7 games ago but apparently the main issue was he just wasn't finishing. David Booth also looks better then expected.
2. Despite their terrible +/-, Ballard and Bieksa look quite good based on this metric. Ballard has been a saw off despite playing with our worst players. Bieksa has been on for a lot more chances for then against despite playing some of the toughest minutes on the team.
3. I cant believe how consistent these numbers are with the decisions made by the coaching staff. If you look at the current ice time distribution and team roles, they almost exactly match the distribution we see. People can rip AV all they want but this is an independent source that basically explains every debated coaching decision.
