(Before I get hammered on RTSS and shots, we adjust shot location by rink and then we break the O zone in to ~50 grids to get our probabilities of a goal.)
As Scott Cullen has noted we don't give credit for scoring a goal and that over long periods that seems to matter. We're thinking about ways to account for this that give credit for scoring but also recognize short term fluctuation in scoring rates.
Hello Mr. Schuckers! I wasn't aware you were a member of the board.
Been a fan of yours at the MIT conference the past couple years. Not to mention Milbury and Burke were complete dicks with you last year. I like your idea behind your DIGR stat as well. Much more representative of a goalie efficiency than the various point shares stats.
Keep up the good work, don't forget that "creative people must be stopped" as coined by David Owens.
