The goal was to select only statistical categories which reflected the defensive part the the game. So thats difficult in itself.

But after selecting the handful of categories above, I.took poll and tried to determine which categories were relatively considered more important.

So that's the subjective part. In an earlier version, I ran the numbers as all equal, but there was obvious difference in importance of some of the stats and a significant effect of superior team play.... But I.did love the look of the shorthanded results of the list...

Quality of competition Corsi quality of Comp Relative Corsi ... ( i don't know the difference between relative and regular) (Goals against while Off/60) - (Goals against while On/60) Blocked shots PDO - Team shooting % + team save % while player is On the ice Zone start % Difference in Zone finish % vs zone start %

Categories weighed equally, with significant weight on ice time.
