Food for thought

I noticed somebody pointed out in another thread our point percentage before and after the Turris trade, so I thought I'd do a little more detailed analysis. Since the Turris trade, we've had the following statline:

GP W L OT P GF GA
46 26 14 06 058 140 113
79 45 24 10 100 240 194 (79 game pace - most teams have played 79 games at this point)
82 46 25 11 103 250 201 (Final 82 game pace)

With a PP of 20.7%, PK of 83.9%, SF/g of 31.2, and SA/g 32.4

In comparison, here's our stat line from before the Turris trade:

GP W L OT P GF GA
33 15 14 04 34 099 114
82 37 35 10 84 246 283

With a PP of 16.7%, PK of 80.0%, SF/g of 30.9, and SA/g 31.7

What I'm trying to illustrate is, we're hardly first round fodder. We've consistently been an excellent team since that trade, and we have potential to really make some noise these playoffs. The biggest red flag is obviously the shots against, and we'll have to continue to rely on Andy to bail us out.

A couple things to take into consideration:
- Goal scoring tends to decrease as the season goes along, which partially accounts for our improved GA. The biggest difference is our goaltending, and especially Andy, has been excellent the second half of the season
- At the same time, we've managed to maintain our goal scoring pace, despite things tightening up. This suggests, as expected, we've improved offensively since the Turris acquisition.

We have certainly played much better since the trade. Filling that long-term organizational need really helped.

I like our chances as well, but I'm trying not to get over confident. That being said, I've already bet a case of beer on the what seems to be inevitable Bruins-Sens series

Lets just hope that Andy's injury was a blessing in disguise and he's well-rested and ready to go for the playoffs.

I don't think we'd be a playoff team without Turris. In fact, I know we wouldn't be.

Turris trade keeps getting better and better.

I did some more number crunching, and here's Anderson's numbers since the trade:

GP W L OT GAA Sv% SO
33 20 9 4 2.36 .929 3

That to me has been the biggest difference from the first half of the season. Turris has helped balance out the offence yes, but those are top 10 goalie numbers.

In a way, "experts" who saw us in the Conference basement weren't all that wrong, we weren't doing well before that trade. The Turris move was a very strange deal in the middle of a rebuild. So glad it's worked out!

The improvement is probably due to a number of factors in addition to the Turris trade, including Anderson, time it took to adapt to MacLean's system, addition of Gilroy, etc.

And ofcourse, Karlsson and Spezza not going cold for too long.

If you remove first 6 games of the season when we were outscored 16-30, our records before and after trade will look pretty similar.
