Okay, I sort of cheated

I went to his profile to see if he was online, and saw him viewing the 196X-198X Save percentage thread haha

This ironically works well considered who I picked

*Ponders* ooooh, I think I know who you thought I was going to take. Good guess, but I just love having elite goaltending too much. (though for once I'm not going to have an elite top line )

It's funny to think that my favorite NHL team's current starting goalie is probably going to be a starter in this thing hah

Anyone in the next 4-5 picks can leave a list with me. I'll be here a while and don't pick for a while.

I'm happy to see Dryden be the next goalie selected.

I've got a list for HHH, so we just need the two before him to come in and pick

OK. Cheers.

However, it hasn't done anything to debunk my "theory".

If anything caveats like the Dead Wings possibly having an easier time scoring than the highest scoring dynasty in the history of the game have me questioning how relative team strength should be accounted for in all these adjustments people are routinely doing.
There's a difference between being on a good team that still gets to play all the teams that other teams play against, and being in a divisional playoff system where every year you get to play against weaker sisters than other comparably strong teams get to play.

I'm not moving the goalposts, you're just equating playoff performance with scoring. I'm talking about playoff performance including scoring.
I am only equating playoff performance with scoring because their average defensive value throughout their careers were pretty much equal.

I know you put a lot of stock into the numbers and put a lot of effort here into trying to estimate their totals, but there are so many variables that aren't even captured in the raw data it is hopeless to adjust and average and then stake a definitive claim either way. (in my opinion)
Nothing is ever conclusive. It's all just a small piece of a big puzzle. In this case you presented two very good points about why raw numbers don't work, and my work got us closer to the truth, not further.

Quote:
If we take them at face value and we're saying Messier was estimated to be scoring at 1.07PPG with your normalization and Yzerman was at 1PPG then I'd say since the majority of Yzerman's playoff games came after he was a defensive stalwart that their playoff performance was fairly close, no?
I dunno, where would you put the cutoff? 1996? Because it's about a 40/60 breakdown if that's the cutoff. Messier did have years that he was not good defensively, but in those years he didn't make the playoffs. It's still fair to say that overall, their playoff defensive performances have been equal.

Not sure if it has any value, (I'm sure it wouldn't if it was at all close), but Messier's career playoff +/- is +51; Yzerman's is -11.

That's some nice detective work.

Someone start the next thread.

Don't worry about the OP, I'll edit it myself.

I don't care who does it. It can be Bugg, it can be someone else. As long as they're here often, and willing to make updates when picks and trades are made and I'm not active.
