Cogliano Kesler Silf

83 points
35% zone starts

Guess it's just a preference

Very similar numbers

GF% Stats say that it's the Koivu/Granland/Zucker line by a mile
They have 80% goals for at 5v5 over 250min together


#2 line is Pavs/Thorton/Marleau with 68%

I think Tkachuk is second on the Flames in CF% in close games (to Dougie Hamilton), which is crazy for an 18-year-old, who supposedly wasn't a great skater.

I don't watch a lot of hockey any more, so I can't comment on lines around the league. But the Backlund-Tkachuk-Frolik line has been insanely good for the Flames on offense and defense.

Not really. We'll never say this about Kopitar.

Which should actually tell some other people how awesome he is two-way.

The only issue I have with this is GF% is going to always be weighed more heavily towards teams with good to great goaltending

Part of the reason the Wild have great goaltending is because they give up the least scoring chances in the league. Koivu and Granlund are number 3 and 2 in the NHL in SCA/60. Those ridiculous suppression numbers, combined with pretty dang good offense has them at 3 and 1 in the league in Scoring Chance % with around 65%.

So there's a bit of puck luck going into the the ridiculous 80% number, but they are certainly earning most of it. Espiecially given that they start in their own end 45% of the their shifts.

Zucker doesn't rate as highly because he bounced around other lines before finding his home with those two, but he's still top 50 in those numbers as well.

Gotta go with the Wild stop line followed by Bergerons line.

Bergerons could center a bowl of ramen noodles and a guitar string and still shut down top lines effortlessly.

Dubnyk faces the least HDSA/60 5 on 5 in the entire league, despite the fact that his style of play gives up a lot of secondary HDSA, which is mighty impressive of the Wild's defense.

Zucker - Koivu - Granlund has been beastly this season. They shut you down and then score on you. Just a treat to watch.
