I would like to see a comprehensive look at the scoring levels of different "types" of players? Separating "first liners" from other forwards is one thing. I'm also interested in the percentage of offense that has come from defensemen and how it has changed over time.
Creating a new kind of "adjusted points" for just first line forwards and another for defensemen (and more for other categories that might be worth studying) would be the final goal.
I know CYM has done some preliminary work with this
I thought someone had looked at scoring by defensemen?
I can post a table of scoring tiers for all players (including d-men), proportional to the number of teams in the league (e.g. 1-30, 31-60, ... 331-360). I would have posted this quite a while ago, but it looks better as a graph (and can't figure out how to post a graph). It uses simple adjusted points, so any fluctuations indicate that a certain tier is doing scoring a larger proportion of points.
