Bolts Preview over at Puck Prospectus

Rich from IC wrote a preview of the Bolts for the guys over at Puck Prospectus (our Tampa preview won't be happening till late Sept).

Quote:
After a fairly disastrous 2008-09 season, the Tampa Bay Lightning can only move forward. For a team whose expectations were high prior to last season, a 14th place Eastern Conference finish, and a 29th overall finish in the NHL standings left much to be desired.

Over the summer, the Lightning did not make as many moves as it did last offseason, however, the moves the team did make were shrewder than last summer.

Moving forward, the Bolts have a 0.3% chance of winning the Stanley Cup (Puck Prospectus Rating) but there is certainly room to improve on a tumultuous first season under new ownership.
For a look at the preview, click here.

Puck Prospectus has some new fancy rating system that I'm not entirely sure how it works. Regardless of which, do you guys think Rich got it right or wrong? Was he missing anything? What could you add. Thoughts and comments are welcome (both on here and on IC).

So many confusing things... for one, when did we get Artyukhin back and get Viktor Tikhonov?

I know Rich didn't put together the charts and it should be noted that neither player is mentioned in his analysis.

Good eye though.

I would like to know how VUKOTA is predicting point totals for individuals. Like the article said, 43 points for Stamkos (a step backwards) seems off.

I would also like to know if/how DGVT and OGVT are measured and if they're also compared or modified by the defensive partner they're on ice with.

I'm curious as to how they compare to a situation similar with the Rays between Longoria and Bartlett - some say JB's range has diminished, but could it also be a case that Longoria naturally has better range, and is getting to more balls in the infield?

Isn't this a duplicate thread of the one about ".3% chance"?

No problem. I was confused and hadn't explored links yet. Just asking for my own sake.
