Gvt

GVT is goals versus threshold. I'm not a huge fan of it since it tries to encompass everything, and I don't think stats can every cover everything in hockey, only add colour and shades to the picture.
I also don't like the fact that it's very much a "what have you done for me lately" stat.
It also doesn't take in account difficulty of job. Ex: Kane scored more goals per minute than Ladd last season, but Ladd also faced top6 minutes more as he was also given the job of shutdown.
Another problem with it is that above average goalies always end up on the top of the list, and lower goalies always end up on the very bottom of the list... I know goaltending is important (as we've seen as a team) but I'm wary that it may be over exaggerated in the algorithm.
And finally, the last problem I have with it is the offensive numbers can be really skewed by puck-luck and guys with crazy/not-normal shooting percentages.

There are some nice things about it, in how it's predominately based on scoring more than your opponent, which is the basics to winning.

Goals Versus Threshold is the value of a player in outscoring the opponent above a regular league replacement player would contribute. For baseball fans (which I am not) it is similar to the stat VORP.

It's a large algorithm split into offense (using games played, TOI, goals and assists), defense (mostly in preventing shots on goal), goaltending (sv%) and shoutout (as winning a shootout counts in the standings).

This was updated at the Jets' 13GP mark

Some random notes:
*Jokinen is penalized for the fact that Pavelec has had his biggest bloopers when Jokinen's been on the ice even though Jokinen has been better defensively than many as noted by his DGVT... IMO opinion he should change dramatically in a few games as that normalizes and he pots a few points
*Ladd does the best on the team due to unsustainable 24% sh%
*Ponikarovsky >> Tangradi
*Last season Wellwood was one of our highest in GVT, now he has tumbled down
*Bogosian only has one game sample size so you know he's going to go all over the place in the next few games
*Wright over Thorburn is very suspect to me, but I guess it's because Wright doesn't have any points
*Last two games for Pavelec were pretty good so my guess is he passes Montoya into ~730ish spot
*Peluso gets a zero because he has yet to actually play when you really really think about it
*Half of Burmistrov's points aren't involved in this table, as they don't have the last two games
