Meanwhile, Galchenyuk, with 0.407 ranks above Desharnais and behind Eller in terms of competition.
In terms of quality of competition amongst centers, it stands as Plekanec, Eller, Galchenyuk, Desharnais.
I love Behind The Net, but I don't put as much stock in QOC and QOT as the other stats. The formula isn't as cut and dry as zone starts, Corsi or pts/60. Especially early in a season, I find some of the QOC and QOT numbers wonky. At this point, I find going through matchups game by game to be the most reliable method of determining QOC.
