Just reworked the Canucks GWG from last season.
17 GWG would be awarded differently.
As it stands:
Quote:
Alex Burrows, 7
Henrik Sedin, 6
Daniel Sedin, 6
Chris Higgins, 4
Sami Salo, 3
Kevin Bieksa 2
Cody Hodgson, 2
Mason Raymond, 2
Manny Malhotra, 2
Andrew Ebbett, 2
Andrew Alberts, 2
Ryan Kesler, 1
Jannik Hansen 1
David Booth, 1
Aaron Rome, 1
Samuel Pahlsson, 1

4 players wiped off the GWG scoresheet:
Kesler 1  Zero
Alberts 2  Zero
Bieksa 2  Zero
Booth 1  Zero
2 added to the list:
Lappy +1
Edler +1
Another takes a big hit:
Burrows 4
Hodgson 1
Raymond adds 1, take away 2, 1
Henrik adds 4, 2 taken away, +2
Rome adds 3, loses 1, +2
Daniel adds 2, 1 taken away, +1
Salo +2
Higgens +2
Ebbett +1
3 times players would of had their GWGs wiped away, but they had multi goal games where they earned the GWG earlier in the game..
New GWG leaders:
Henrik 8
Daniel 7
Higgens 6
Salo 5
Burrows 3
Rome 3
Ebbett 3
Malhotra 2
Hodgson 1
Raymond 1
Hansen 1
Edler 1
Pahlsson 1
Lappy 1
A sample size of 1 team over 1 season isn't adequate obviously.. so to conclude cream rising would be premature... but i think there is difference we would see when the emphasis slides towards goals that put your team ahead and taking away the benefit of falling into a GWG with late mean nothing opposition goals...
Edit:
=========================
Did CBJ since they had the smallest sample size of GWG...
