NameRelQoCOZSRelCorsiCorsiG/60A1/60P/60
Thorburn 0.631 38.8 -21.8-17.70 0.35 0.52 0.95
Wright 0.921 42.0 -12.4-13.45 0.26 0.39 0.65
Slater 0.900 28.5 -27.9-20.11 0.75 0.37 1.25
Glass 0.892 34.1 -24.0-17.16 0.34 0.40 1.07
Wrights numbers are from 2009-2010 season as that is the only one where he has large enough sample size to compare (48 gp). GST from 2011.

Here are Slater and Glass's from 2009 since they are similar usage than Wright:
NameRelQoCOZSRelCorsiCorsiG/60A1/60P/60
Wright 0.921 42.0 -12.4-13.45 0.26 0.39 0.65
Slater 0.542 44.0 -06.6-20.11 0.95 0.48 1.62
Glass 0.432 42.1 -21.1-13.30 0.37 0.47 1.03

From a purely statistical view he looks like he is on par if not better from Glass defensively but much lower offensively. My guess is TNSE is thinking that at a young age the offense in pro will eventually come like it did in junior and defense usually improves with age irregardless.


Here are Machacek's and Macenauer's 2011 stats compared to Wright:
NameRelQoCOZSRelCorsiCorsiG/60A1/60P/60
Wright 0.921 42.0 -12.4-13.45 0.26 0.39 0.65
Machacek -0.058 59.1 -10.1-4.33 1.24 2.47 5.57
Macenauer -0.713 47.9 -11.6-15.91 0.27 0.53 1.06

When you keep in mind that Machacek and Macenauer were being very sheltered and that Machacek had an on-ice team sh% of 26.32 (highest in NHL and VERY unsustainable)... This guy is 100% looking like a defensive upgrade on these guys but not an offensive upgrade.
