Interesting to see that Gally and Chucky are way at the top while the Desharnais and Cole are at the bottom. Also, Desharnais' 0.868 on ice Save% is eye popping!

From behindthenet.ca: “PDO is the sum of "On-Ice Shooting Percentage" and "On-Ice Save Percentage" while a player was on the ice. It regresses very heavily to the mean in the long-run: a team or player well above 1000 has generally played in good luck and should expect to drop going forward and vice-versa.”

Also, you should take a minute to read Talks to Goalposts’ post (post #12); I do think that sometimes people do put too much emphasis on micro stats but he/she sure knows his stuff!

So, basically, you underlined the fact that Cole, Desharnais and Pacioretty have been unlucky thus far this season. And we should expect a better production (or better results) from them as the season unfolds.
