I also used zone start/finish. Explain to me how losing ground on 12% of his shifts could be possible for an excellent defensive player.
Explain to me why, if Stepan is so important to his team in a defensive role, Torts gave him 62% starts in the offensive zone.
Explain to me why I should disregard the fact that Gagner put up 15% more points per minute.
Explain to me why I'm the fool in this conversation. I'm using all available resources to evaluate players, including having watched both players plenty of times over the last 5/2 seasons. You're relying just on your eyes and burying your head when someone presents concrete facts that don't fit your preconceived notions. Which of these makes more sense?
