Statistical analysis is what I do for a living, so you should know that I'm not saying "IT's all BS, God Dammit!" But in hockey a lot of it is shallow BS. There's publications all over the place where the writers look at a few stats and do their write-ups which don't jibe with what what actual fans see. How many Jackets games did Cullen watch this year? 2? I chose Prout to highlight how silly his approach can be but you can pick many others from his write-up.
BTW, I read most of Cullen's off-season game plans every year, and I've learned to decode his language back into stats-speak so I'm not deceived into thinking its a real reflection of how effective the players were. I just thought it odd that you were into it.
